Well somebody needs to be blamed.

For a long time, I've blamed them for the pronunciation of my family name, and rightfully so.

The Spanish sought gold, The French sought furs, but the English were just hoping to find immigrants that could cook.

Uncontrolled_Jibe: The Spanish sought gold, The French sought furs, but the English were just hoping to find immigrants that could cook.


Instead they got the Normans, who apparently offered nothing in the way of improvement.

common sense is an oxymoron: Uncontrolled_Jibe: The Spanish sought gold, The French sought furs, but the English were just hoping to find immigrants that could cook.

The Normans were just late period Vikings.
At least England avoided surstroming as a national dish.

It sounds like the Normans brought bacon, one of Britain's favorite flavors.

The British scourged the world for spice, and then did not use them.

English breakfast is decent.
The lunch is fine.
There are some good dinner items, but the sheer lack of options makes all of the criticism warranted.
English deserts are rather good.

The French didn't learn a lot of their refined culinary skills that we associate with them today until they started reading cooking books from Italy in the late 1400s and early 1500s. The arrival of Catherine de Medici in 1533 reinforced this trend towards what we now consider French cuisine.

English desserts are delicious. Sticky toffee pudding, Eton Mess, trifle...

So many people have gone that route and ended up with nothing to show for it but a spotted dick.
