I thought it was German food that was known for being overly plain and simple?

It's not that Bong food is bad, it's that nobody knows how to cook it. Almost the whole lower class is food illiterate, apart from knowing a select few take-away menu names.

British food is easy working food. Roasted meat and vege for dinner. Bacon and eggs for breakfast

People who turn their nose up at something weird, by and large. My dad eats 3 veg and meat every night for dinner and he has done it for 70 years.

But British has also been a worldwide empire like no other and you wouldn't be surprised to see some old nigel building a tandoori oven in his backyard out of pots and cooking some fantastic spicy curry. And you will of course know of some world class british chefs who can cook anything

Scottish is perhaps the worst diet in the world where you fry everything you have for dinner and then re fry it all for breakfast

Define "simple". The classic German food consists of either very simple sausage related dishes (we love our Wurst) or the good old Hausmannskost, not haute cuisine but filling and tasty dishes which range from simple Eintopf (cut everything of veggies that isn't on the trees fast enough, but mostly carrots and leek, celery etc and meat and throw it in boiling water and let simmer) over things like Eisbein with the beloved Sauerkraut to things that needs some more time and preperation, a Rinderroulade isn't done just like that in 30 Minutes, start the day before eaitng with that.

I have to ask but what do non-UK people think brits eat?

I just wanna know why we have this stereotype?
>>
Who keeps making these threads?
>>
>>9540264

I'd assume most would say

-FIsh and Chips
-Baked Beans on toast
-Basically everything in the classic "English breakfast"
A big push the stereotype here got through the delicacy that is
-Bread sandwich

>Define "simple".
I'm not the guy you're replying to, but I think the "simple and bland" description isn't too far off.

German food doesn't use much in the way of complicated cooking methods, sauces and complex preparations are few. Like most northern European countries the climate is pretty bad for growing things so the cuisine lacks many of the herbs and spices you'd find in cuisine from countries closer to the equator. Of course there are exceptions--I'm not saying that all German food is bland--but generally speaking it's of simple prep and has minimal seasoning.

Compare a standard veggie dish between German and French, for example. The Germans will boil the veggie in salted water, and that's it. The French will boil the veggie in stock or court bullion and then will serve it with a separately prepared sauce. The sauce will likely be a more complex preparation than the veggie itself. It's entirely possible the dish will also be gratineed, finished under the salamander, or otherwise have some kind of finishing touch put on it.
>>
>>9540313
>salamander
Slave State detected.
>>
>>9540302

most of those are meals that are typically rarely had, beans on toast is essentially the ramen of quick brit food (although ham and sharp cheddar usually grated onto it)

Bread sandwich is a meme, literally noone eats it, and fish and chips is drunk food (in which the typical brit drinks quite a bit on weekends) as fish shops are quite sparse.

>>9540305
blood pudding is typically only in traditional english breakfasts (i.e. the north), shepherds pie is pretty good when it's done right.

But yeah, brits typically have a varied diet, salmon/chicken/red meat alongside stir fries/jacket potatoes/stews/soups.

That being said, there is a general trend among the lower/working class to subsist on frozen meals/ready meals which taste pretty abhorrent if you're used to fresh food.

It makes sense, considering the area that the UK is. Coastal leads to fishing. Inland areas lead to farming. There's quite a bit of variety to be had. It's all very hearty food too because of the weather.

>That being said, there is a general trend among the lower/working class to subsist on frozen meals/ready meals which taste pretty abhorrent if you're used to fresh food.
That's the case here in America too. It's just easier for them to pop some cheap shit in the microwave than to learn to cook it. I'm glad that they have cheap food readily available, even if it's better to buy chicken breasts and cook them up in an oven with some simple rub.
>>
>>9540313

With Sauces that is true. The Sauce known as Bechamel is known here too, called a simple Mehlschwitze, but other than that the sauce is mostly made out of the meat fond that gets cooked, after frying the meat in the pan the fond gets cooked classic way with wine but often just water, and then reduced and some spices added and that is the sauce. Serving sauces extra is not some strong point of our classic kitchen.
Spices are mostly salt and pepper, some clove and maybe some laurel, also of course the flavour given by the onions if you count that.
Extravagant things like gratinating etc are not classic methods.

Who do you think reports cavities? It's a revelation, but it turns out it's those who diagnose them - dentists. And the reason amerilards have more is they're already up to their ears in debt, have no dental insurance because the premiums only pay for a yearly checkup and you have to pay $400.00 or more for a cavity filling and simply wait until the pain becomes unbearable or pull the fucker themselves like I do. I don't do sugar so I haven't had an issue (only had to pull one tooth myself) but I know people who are in thousands of dollars debt for dental work. And guess what? They had dental "insurance," lol.

If it helps, The Black Swan also has a single Michelin star and 4 AA Rosettes. So it's not a total fluke.

Having said that, it seems likely that people who go to 2 & 3 star restaurants probably don't then go rate it on TripAdvisor, so I suspect the data tends towards the lower end of the market.
>>
>>9544412
>So it's not a total fluke.
I didn't say it was. I simply was replying to the other guy's question about it being a michelin rating by pointing out that no, it isn't.

It's not uncommon for some of the "best ranked" restaurants to be less than 3 star. It happens often. After all, this is all subjective.
>>
>>9539570
I think one reason the uk has a bad reputation for food is that in general we lack enough food snobs when compared to other countries. French and Italian people seem much more happy to ridicule someone's cooking.
Also Americans, with their 'the customer is always right' thing and their tipping, love to complain about anything. For that reason a Brit may go to America and have reasonably positive things to say about the food even though the food they had wasn't amazing. Where as an American who goes to Britain will be shocked that the waiters and waitresses do not take their complaints seriously and if they are disappointed by one meal that will just confirm their prejudices.
