Listening to you guys going on about British school food, I just had a thought.

The US has "adopted" cuisine from nearly every country on the planet. Except Britain.

Not surprising really, British cooking is supposedly one of the worlds five smallest books, together with...

German humour, Italian war heroes, the book of Jewish charities and Australian culture!*

*As told to me by a German friend!

That said, you can't beat good old roast beef, Yorkshire pud and roast potatoes, roast parsnips and peas. And don't forget the mustard and gravy!

Having turkey on Thanks Giving Day too I suspect.

BTW. since this is the 'Did you know thread' and we have gone a bit off topic, did you know that The President of The United States ceremonially 'pardons' a turkey on Thanks Giving Day? The turkey is then given to a farm where it spends the rest of its days running around freely.

And I thought it was only us Brits that had traditions like that! Maundy Money etc.etc.

Which got me to wondering...Americas's top ten favourite foods in descending order are as follows:

1.Hamburger
2.Hot Dog
3.Fries
4.Oreo Cookies*
5.Pizza
6.Sweet/Soda Drinks
7.Chicken Tenders
8.Ice Cream
9.Donuts
10.Potato Chips

*WHY? They are vile beyond belief, being laced with sugar and practically devoid of chocolate/cocoa. There again, maybe they are just in the US tradition which produces 'candy' (as in 'chocolate') that's the worst tasting toothrot known to mankind unless anyone's had anything even fouler? Unfortunately, since Cadbury's was bought out by Kraft, the sugar content goes up, the chocolate goes down. See also the once mighty Mars Bar, now a pathetic overly sweet unchocolatey shadow of it's former self. Bah!

Did you know:
The average American consumes three burgers per week; that's 13 billion per year as a nation. 71% of America's beef is consumed this way. That's a LOT of beef**
**GM Beef at that, too.

"As American as Apple pie." Apple pie came from England.

Now, as a snotty 10 year old, if I had been asked to write 'what I know about France', I reckon that high on the list would have been that you could find out the main export of France by turning your school-issue drinking glass upside down. These magnificent vessels were made by 'Duralex', in France. It said so on the bottom.

Boys and girls, I think we were embracing design classics. First made in France around 1927, the Duralex design and specification has remained virtually unchanged since Saint-Gobain introduced their patented glass tempering process to the company in 1939 and the 'Picardie' has now become the quintessential French Bistro glass.

Crikey, this now feels like 'friends re-united' or some such reunion...we present:

L-R The Gigogne (seen here sans blancmange), the Provence and the bistro classic, the Picardie.


Salut!
The 'Provence' I recall from my childhood as being a staple inhabitant of NZ milkbars, cafes, and railway tearooms -several stacked trays of them usually located immediately adjacent to the large refrigerated tank of recirculating chilled liquid sold as 'orange juice'....heavy, solid and they usually bounce rather than break if dropped.

On a similar-but unrelated theme-does anyone recall the grey-black smoked glass coffee mugs-also made in France- that were popular in the eighties?
One or two batches were dodgy and would explode spontaneously without warning (presumably because they hadn't been properly annealed to relieve stresses)---and rapidly became known in NZ as 'Mururoa Mugs' after the French south pacific nuclear testing site which we strenuously opposed during the 70s and 80s

England may not be famed for its cuisine, but we have given the world 3 meals. English breakfast, high tea and afternoon tea. High tea and afternoon tea are different things.

On a completely different tack, did you know that Nillsson's Everybody's Talking, most famously used in the opening sequence of film Midnight Cowboy (with Dustin Hoffman and John Voight) was also used in the Margate scenes of comedy series 'Only Fools and Horses' in a feature-length special episode called 'The Jolly Boys Outing' -which if you remember shows various characters enjoying themselves at the beach.

That's pretty scary.

I remember a Jamie Oliver special a few years ago where he went into various American schools and tried to change their dietary programs. At the high school he noticed they only served french fries and pizza with sodas. He tried to get the cafeteria to change to serving salads, fresh sandwiches with milk and juices. The Kids went ballistic demanding the old food back. The cafeteria cooking staff complained about all the extra prep work of making salads and wanted to go back to the premade processed foods too.

At the primary school, where the children don't get to pick their meals, he also found all the food was pre-made and processed. Chicken nuggets, fries, pizza, and sweets were the primary food served to growing young children. He went out to figure out why and discovered that processed food companies had a powerful lobby and heavily funded the campaign runs of state and local people who would keep their high margin processed foods as the primary supply for schools. He pointed out it was cheaper for the boards to source out fresh food. He made some head way getting the kids to at least eat yogurt.

Certainly pointed out in the end how at a young age unhealthy eating habits were being built up in children and teenagers because of political influence.
