About the cooking, each time I return to the uk I am still stunned by the amount of McDonalds, it kind of shows that largely in the uk, eating is now something similar to putting fuel in the car
We find the same, last time we were over there we went for a pub lunch, I wouldn’t have fed the sh!t we were served to my dog.
There were some good restaurants too so not all bad.

So there is stuff in the eu that the eu don't know where it comes from
