Bread with peanut butter & hagelslag is the best thing ever, fight me

I believe when we met up in Amsterdam I was like, "What's Dutch food?" To which you replied, "Tosti." "Cool, what's that?" "Grilled cheese." "Cool, I'll have that."

And french fries with mayo.

...which, if you call it "frites" with "aioli" isn't even Dutch.

I lost all respect for food in the UK as soon as I was presented with a Welsh Rarebit.

"This is cheez whiz on toast."

"...yeah, mostly"

"See I was willing to consider a Scotch egg to be a one-off but you guys really do just eat fried garbage and pretend you're better than everyone, don't you?"

"Well, not to each other just to you lot."

What I love about the Great British Baking Show is it's largely colonized minorities making French, Austrian, Italian and German delicacies in a tent in Yorkshire somewhere.

I swear the best food I ever had in the UK was in an American style steakhouse! The worst, on the other hand, was black pudding served for brunch at the Old Course.
