British is best

A new poll suggests that we prefer British cuisine to foods from around the world.

With a wave of patriotism surging across the UK, research has found that the traditional British roast is the nation’s favourite meal with almost two thirds of Brits (64%) having cooked one in the last week.

Fending off stiff competition from foreign rivals, three quarters (75%) of the nation prefer British cuisine to any other type of food with Italian and Indian featuring in the top three. Despite its famed gastronomic background, French food finished ninth with just 3%.

Only a third of British cooks (38%) would describe themselves as confident in the kitchen… but when it comes to being adventurous, men are more daring with 11% seeing  themselves as experimental in the kitchen, compared to just 7% of women.
