In response to the Omnivores One Hundred, Helen at Food Stories: http://helengraves.co.uk/ has created The British One Hundred. I love lists so I couldn't resist having a go.

Here are the rules if you would like to play along:

1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.

2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.

3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.

4) Link back to Food Stories, if you would be so kind.

This is a lot of fun- ashamed to say I have eaten most of them... but I will do it later in the weekend when its not the middle of the night!

Paula said...

Again, I just saw this post. I don't know why my beast of a computer/network/whatever is not picking these up! Argh!

This was such a fun post, too! There were many dishes that I didn't recognize, some that I've tried or at least heard of, and then there were some who's names made me laugh, such as #37 Stinking Bishop! Ha! You'll have to tell me what Lancashire Hot Pot is. Sounds like there's a memory there ... :-)

Fun post!
