  • In the four decades in which he's lived in Britain, Martin Lampen has never eaten a single truly great meal. Is this because Brits regard any artificial drink with pineapple or mango flavoring as “tropical?” Is it something to do with their penchant for crinkle-cut potato chips? This engaging attempt to answer some of these complex cultural questions is an indispensable and laugh-out-loud-funny guide to the not-so-wondrous world of British cuisine. All the joys and tragedies of British food are addressed, from railway buffet cars and lamb shanks to coronation chicken and fruits of the forest. Tips are also provided on how to digest a scotch egg, converse at a dinner party, survive the annual family barbecue, and on what to order in a “hummus bar.” This is a hilarious and irreverent look at British cuisine past and present in all its flavorless, stodgy splendor.
