    Crap tier- black pudding?

    In that case the poll is a load of sh1te.

    Invalid survey - they omitted Fray Bentos pies. :whistle:

    Couldn't agree more. I had liver and onions at a restaurant for the first time in years a week or so ago and whilst it just confirmed what I already knew (not many can cook like my dear old mum) it was delicious.

    Hardly represents some of the great food available does it. Was the poll done in 1974?

    Eton mess. Fat and carbs, but of a different kind. It does at least have fruit in it!

    They seem to have stuck to savoury stuff. I'd go for things like Dorset Apple cake, summer pudding etc as well. Not to mention Spotted Dick and Custard (although that alway sounds like an embarrassing male disease to me).
     
  7. I love everything that is on the crap tier. I’ve eaten that stuff every day since I was in shorts. I’m a fit and healthy 96 year old who can still do a 58 minute 25 mile TT.

    It's the cheap, readymade imposters that has got Yorkshire Puddings on the god tier. There'll be many that haven't had the real thing, which rightly belongs on there.

    The poll has failed to weight the results to compensate for the varying population densities in 'Britain'.:sad:
     
  10. With those from the north being more dense?

    And where is Chicken Tikka Masala in this list, then?
    :hungry:

    BTW, it's a savoury list, hence no mention of desserts.

    So it is, ta.. That's the problem with seeing pics on a small phone screen :okay:

    srw It's a bit more complicated than that...

    I suspect that in a similar French poll steak frites and pain would come out much higher than escargots and andouillettes. Surveys like this are almost designed to favour the bland and inoffensive.
