It's no secret to anyone that the Brits aren't world class gastronomes. They might know what gourmet feasts they like to eat, but they sure as hell don't know how to cook it! Honestly, only the Brits would think to boil a whole onion and serve it alongside a charred piece of beef.

So, it wasn't a surprise when we visited this British grocery store on Hudson Street yesterday. We found the most curious of items on the shelves. Spotted Dick? Sponge Pudding? What the hell is that and who the hell would come up with a name like that??? "We'll be having the spotted dick, please. Medium rare if you will. Thank you." Are they for serious???

This one is our favorite! Cock-a-Leekie soup? We are soooo confused right now! If our cock's a leekie, we rush to the doctor! We don't open a can and heat it up! Come on now, Brits! Pull it together! And if any of you can explain the above, please email us ASAP!
