Is Yorkshire pudding the UK's one and only decent contribution to world cuisine?
>>
Bread and butter pudding is good too.
>>
The British empire established and worked global trade routes that brought exotic ingredients and recipes to every corner of the civilised world, while the industrial revolution enabled virtually every modern technology from refrigeration to air travel.

Without the UK you'd be eating gruel at this time of year, and by candlelight.

So... yes?

No, we also invented good curry.

What are you, some kind of Amerifat?
>>
>>8497719
With the exception of Worcester sauce, which is really an inferior version of fish sauce, all disgusting.
>>
>>8497711
The industrial revolution started in the Benelux and the spice routes were established hundreds of years before the first inbred Angle decided to dip his toes into the water

Thanks for exposing your pathetic level of ignorance and confirming that I can dismiss your entire post as crap.

London broil is American lol
>>
better than lard gargling "add 6 cups of sugar and butter to this passata" americans.
>>
Like you'll get a worthwhile answer. This site is just full of Americans with no culinary experience outside of fast food. Asking them for their opinions on any cuisine you can't microwave is like asking a dog about quantum physics.

They're nothing like each other.

No. Belgium was the second country to industrialise, and the work was originally driven by an Englishman.

This. Americans are literally the least knowledgeable cooks in the West. I only go to regional Europoor sites for actual food discussion, here is where the bants are.

For one, London broil is not a particular dish but rather simply a way to cut beef for presentation. Secondly, despite what Wikipedia will parrot at you, it is unknown in the UK altogether, especially because the word "broil" is wholly unused in Commonwealth English.

And 'blancemange' [sic] is not British, either. It originated in the SIcilian city of Modica during the Emirates period. The use of almonds, rosewater, fish gelatin and rice so on are telltale of its Sicilian-Arab origins. The earliest known description of the dish comes from the court of Matilde of Canossa whose cooks prepared the dish for Pope Gregory the VII and Heinrich IV of Franconia at Heinrich's coronation in 1084.

Normans conquered the Emirates in 1072, discovered the dish (along with others) bringing them back to France and, eventually, carrying the dish to Britain. The earliest known mention of the dish within the British sphere of influence dates from the late 1300s.

I guess us americans just aren't ready for the culinary genius that inspired you to create amazing dishes like haggis and lutefisk. A lifetime of taco bell couldn't prepare my body for the atrociously disgusting things you put in your mouths.

Operative word here is "cooks". You can EAT a lot of foreign food in the US, but people generally don't bother to learn anything about it.

And thanks for spamming fast food at the rest of the world and calling it "cuisine," Amerilard.

Beef Wellington is pretty good

admittedly I can't think of anything outside of that. Maybe scotch egg, but then again maybe not

Taking random credit for Indian, French and Middle Eastern inventions. The only one I'll grant you out of those is the Sandwich, which is awfully close to a non-invention.

Puddings in general. I haven't met a pudding I don't like (this includes blood pudding).

But Yorkies are special. The form they take - not by design, but by nature - begs to hold delicious gravy. If muffins did this, I'd eat them with gravy too, but they don't. Only the yorkshire pudding does this, and for that I will die of cholesterol poisoning.

There's some indication that lasagne is a British invention too.
