Explained.

Scots are citizens of Great Britain / The UK because they don't have their own passports. Even though they have their own parliament,

Haggis is fine. Marmite's fine. Human breast milk is pretty tasty, so the ice cream is probably good. Black pudding is good.

Dunno what laverbread is but it looks like it'd be good on buttered toast.

They are part of Britain because that is the name of the damn island.

I grew up British. Dad loves jellied eels, steak and kidney pie, etc. Sister ate marmite sammiches like it was her job. Mom thinks the correct way to prepare anything is to boil it until colorless, tasteless, and mushy. All the while I was considered "a picky eater". You know, for having taste buds and whatnot.

Laverbread is basically a seaweed paste. It's super nutritious and free so you ate it to supplement your diet in the winter or when you couldn't afford anything else. This is one of those foods that are kind of gross tasting but kept people alive.
 
2014-07-05 08:26:45 PM
Most of that stuff's pretty good, just visually odd. I mean the Brits could do the same thing with a lot of our foods.

Just how James VI of Scotland wanted it when he unified the Kingdom.

Oh, fark you article for dishing mushy peas. They are awesome. I made my American wife learn how to make them with a proper meat pie and chips, as was intended in the annuals of most awesome food history.
 
2014-07-05 08:31:15 PM
Meh - most of them aren't bad at all. This writer is certainly from the early 1990s, when "can you believe those wacky foreigners" articles were all over the place...I guess they still are.

This. I had it at a Robert Burns dinner way back when I first met Lordfortuna, and it wasn't bad at all. It tasted like sausage but with the consistency of oatmeal, basically. It was prepared in a fancy hotel kitchen though so YMMV.

James did not unite them.  England and Scotland were separate countries that just shared a common ruler.  The UK did not appear until 1707

Most of that shiat does not belong on the list. Bubble and squeak is great, haggis is at worst edible, black pudding is surprisingly good, and even spotted dick isn't awful. It's just unfortunately named.
Traditional British food is pretty good. There, I said it.

FTFAJellied Eels...Like unagi, only gross

First, I laughed.

Then, I began to crave unagi.  I have no idea how many of those things I'm capable of eating because I've never reached the point of not wanting more.  Unagi and tuna (maguro) sashimi are two of my greatest weaknesses.

/One of the things I miss the most about living in California is having an apartment within walking distance of half a dozen sushi joints.  And, they were all pretty good.

Just 14?  I think a top 50 might've been better at showcasing British cooking.
 
2014-07-05 08:44:54 PM
The thing that strikes me about a lot of British cuisine I've seen is that how good it turns out depends on the quality of the ingredients used and the skill of the preparer.  And, yeah, I know this is true of any cuisine, but it seems especially true of British cooking.  Take a Yorkshire pudding.  Done well, it's a light, fluffy, lovely compliment to a meal.  Done wrong, it's a disgusting blob of greasy dough.
 
2014-07-05 08:47:35 PM
Bubble and squeak is awesome. A gran of salt, without the British the traditional breakfast with eggs and toast and meat would be replaced with the Continental.

Show some respect.

Haggis may be disgusting (I think I'd actually like it, although I question the wisdom of eating lung meat from Britain--not a fan of soot) but I will tell you one thing about this photo...

That dagger is hella cool.
 
2014-07-05 08:54:52 PM
My theory about why the British created the largest empire in history stems from their cuisine. The Spanish and French empires never really reached their potential because they have delicious food at home thus no real incentive to go overseas and when they did, they were real jerks to the locals since the locals didn't have food that (they felt) couldn't compare to home. The British, with their awful food, had a higher incentive to go out into the world to find better food to bring back. They were also nicer to the locals compared to the French and Spanish so they could keep eating the exotic food for longer, teaching them how to administrate their own countries so they can take time off of imperialism-ing to chow down on some matar paneer, dim sum or falafel.

Ya know, I guaranty you I could force myself to eat everything on that list before I ever eat those boiled half-developed duck eggs that they eat in Louse! Eeww. Went to a friends house that his wife was eating them. Not only did it smell like rancid ass, she said the beak and head were her favorite parts.

I had some at a Highlands Festival here in the US, so I don't know how authentic it was. Still, it wasn't bad, though...reminded me of a sort of mealy paté.

I've long suspected this myself.  "We liked the food so much, we took over the country."

North America, for instance, had...  corn.  And turkeys.  And lobster, which was considered such a poor man's food that there were laws against feeding it to your servants more than three times per week.  So screw those guys, that food's crap.  They want independence?  Yeah, sure, get outta here.

Australia had...  what does Australia have natively besides everything being scary and poisonous?

I'm pretty sure that 1707 saw the creation of the Kingdom of Great Britain when the kingdoms of Scotland and England were united into one, while the United Kingdom (of Great Britain and Ireland; later GB and Northern Ireland) wouldn't appear until 1800.

The truth is there is nutritional value in almost anything you eat and, if you grow up in a culture that has some oddball notions (from your parochial perspective) about what's tasty and what's not, you'll probably grow up with a hankering for a heapin' helpin' of lung stew now and then.

The only thing actually bad on that list, is jellied-eels.

Haggis should be up there with the all-time greats. Regardless of ingredients, not only does it taste amazing, but it's incredibly good for you to boot. The only complaint is that generic store-bought can sometimes be too dry; this can be solved with the application of gravy, neaps n tatties.

Mushy peas is an excellent side dish, not to mention essential for a proper plate of fish and chips.
