    Other popular British delicacies are jellied eels (How has an account with the Sargasso Sea), tripe (animal stomachs) and faggots (pig offal).

          (Lamb) chop toad is a very nice variation on the toad-in-the-hole theme.

            You can keep the eels and tripe, but the faggots with peas and mash - luvverly.

              Didn´t David Frost once say that in hell, the British handled the cooking...? On the other hand, he also said that in that same hotspot, the Swedes took care of the television entertainment.

                Wouldn't that be horrible - roast beef and Yorkshire pud every day for eternity?

                (I can't wait!)

                  I think there is a chance the roast beef would get overdone, considering the premises...

                      I'm surprised you posted that, Lynn, given the starving Scot bottom right corner.

                        Mr. 'Udson

                        Hello Robert. Thanks.

                        Well, I recall the line delivered by Mr. 'Udson (Gordon Jackson) in the inaugural episode of "Upstairs/Downstairs": "Pride? My grandmother was a proud woman. She died of starvation."

                        Perhaps that Scot is a proud laddie?

                        Cheers.

                          Hi Lynn

                          Well, although Mr 'Udson could come across as a bit servile, I remember a trade unionist once mocking him for being a lackey. Mr 'Udson asked him what he called his boss at work, and wondered how long the trade unionist would keep his job if he didn't call his boss 'sir.'

                          I also remember one time when Mr Bellamy was away, young Mr Bellamy asked his girlfriend round and told Mr 'Udson to fetch the best wine from the cellar. Mr 'Udson refused on the ground that only Mr Bellamy snr could issue such an order, and persisted despite the threat of dismissal. When Mr Bellamy returned he backed up Mr 'Udson.

                          Of course, once Mr 'Udson became Mr Cowley, all fear of starvation evaporated, since Mr Cowley lived entirely on malt.

                            TV producer

                            Hello Robert. Thanks.

                            Of course BEFORE all that, he was a humble TV producer doing a programme at Westminster Abbey. (Quatermass Xperiment)

                            Cheers.

                              I'm partial to homemade sausage rolls and also Devonshire teas with scones, strawberry jam and clotted cream. Lovely!
