    Wartime limitations did leave food lacking in some qualities, but that is long ago.  There are regional differences as well.  Interestingly, food of India found in Britain is far better than that found in America, but Chinese food in America is far better than Chinese food in Britain.  My theory is this reflects which pair of countries were more heavily involved.  UK in India for centuries, USA more Chinese immigrants.

    English cooking has for some time been sorted as "awful" for its alleged helpless food, absence of creative mind, tedious puddings, and feeble tea. With a background marked by wartime proportioning, industrialization, and now the control of goliath markets, it is nothing unexpected that this bogus impression has created.

    If that were true, how come so many of the worlds top chefs are British?

    Most foreigners experience British food at tourist traps where it is terrible as well as being expensive.

    Traditionally, rather bland, very high in fat and calories.  Many of the dishes literally are made from blood and guts.
