I have a daughter in law who is a really good cook so my confidence in my cooking skills is low. At one time, I used to cook dinners for up to 50 people - main course only, I was not up to doing the desserts. People thought I was a great cook, which I found a laugh, since the main recommendation for my food was the size of the portions. Plain English food sums up my cooking all right - but Welsh portion sizes (large).Here is a poem about the Welsh attitude to food. It goes to the tune of 'Mud, mud, glorious mud.'
'Food, food, glorious food,
Nothing quite like it for improving the mood.
So follow me follow,
Down to the canteen
And there let us wallow
In glorious food.'
Apologies to other Welsh people - I'm just tarring the whole nation with my own brush!
