If British food is so bad then why are the best chefs in the world British?
>>
they aren't

>>18611695
you might be on to something. it has parallels in film and music, where some of the best comes from creativity inspired by lack of technology. same reason most films today with huge CGI budgets are uninspired crap. same reason most italian chefs are pompous pricks with no creativity, since their produce is famously delicious in its pure form
>>
>>18611673
British food is amazing. The people shittalking it are the ones caught up in the 'Med cuisine is good' myth who probably like to eat garbage like Spanish, South Italian and Greek food.
>>
they all studied in france for years though
i dont know who bottom left is
>>
>>18611723
jamie never studied in france, he worked at Gennaro Contaldo's Italian restaurant in London but by no means is he a chef. he is however a high tier home cook and i like his attitude to food
>>
>>18611729
>home cook
thats a better way of putting it, i think i must have seen every episode of 15 minute meals
>>
It's a stereotype that comes purely from ignorance.
>>
>>18611673
The British food is bad meme, has just been taken way too far basically. In reality there is some really good British food but yes there has historically been quite bland British meals. But it's literally next to France, Spain, Italy etc, so chefs like you've pictured can learn from different cultures and teach others. It's always funny how it's Americans that force this meme and yet they are basically the worst cooks in the world.

It's Brooklyn Beckham

>>18611673
they're far from best, they were just the most promoted ones in media for some time
>>
>>18611746
Bland is good. I'll take it over food polluted by peppers every time.
>>
>>18611765
the opposite of bland is not spicy, food can be flavorful without any spiciness in it
>>
Britain has some of the best produce in the world, a long history of high quality meat farming with some of the highest animal welfare standards, world renowned cheese, seafood, but people who don't live there only think of stereotypical wartime food.

>Ducasse, 20 stars
>"Matured Comté cheese, quince condiment"

Do people really pay hundreds of dollars and wait 3 hours for a slice of cheese and a slice of fucking apple?

French food seems like a meme
>>
What types of dishes do you think the above chefs tend to cook? When I think Gordan Ramsey I do not think "OI GUV GONNA COOK ME A PROPPAH EELS AND MASH".
>>
Aren't both Ramsey and White french trained?
>>
>>18614007
Its all pretending and a show for instagram.
>>
>>18613834
Cottage pie/shepherds pie, fish and chips, english breakfast, BIR style curries. Want more?
>>
>>18614057
There is no english breakfast outside of a british pub, or so im told
>>
>>18614062
You're told wrong. In fact, I wouldn't recommend eating breakfast in a pub at all really.
>>
>>18613834
Half the planet eats sandwiches every day.

>>18614072
Its was pretty good though i coudnt finish it was so big a portion and nobody looked at me wrong for drinking a beer with breakfast.

People have been putting ingredients between bread since bread was invented.
>b-but muh sliced bread, sandwhich is different
Lmao.

>People have been putting ingredients between bread since bread was invented.
you'd think so, but actually no.
>>
>>18614147
>Flatbreads have a long history in the Mediterranean region and the Middle East. In particular, the “idea of rolling bread with a filling is very ancient in Turkish culture” says Mary Isin, author of Bountiful Empire: A History of Ottoman Cuisine. During the mid-17th century, the 4th Earl of Sandwich traveled to Turkey and other regions in the Ottoman Empire, which may explain where he allegedly got the idea to ask a club or restaurant server to make him a sandwich back in London.

Desperation.

celebrity chefs are not the best chef's in the world. They're the best at public relations and marketing.

>concerts seems like a meme

None of that is true
>>
>>18611925
So these people have opened a lot of restaurants. I have four Michelin tires; can these chefs say the same?

stealing and imitating foreign culture
like they always do

Not true, he worked as an intern at Antonio Carluccio's restaurant (Gennaro's boss) where he got picked up by a BBC milf producer who saw his sex appeal.

He's the image, his cooking is all ghost writers (and he's very honest about that, to his credit). Also to his credit: he did help out both Contaldo and Carluccio later on, when they became forgotten and he was still in his prime.

He's a lovely person but he never learned to cook properly.
>>
>>18611673

No joke (am britbong) they have to diversify.

There are Italian restaurants everywhere, there are no British restaurants. They have to learn to cook everything and anything that is foreign.

But that's true of celebrity chefs only. Most people in the UK eat terrible food and are terrible people. Or, in the words of ou national treasure David Mitchell: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-tNWYclVn-Q

Ramsay and White were good in their prime, but they were just two among hundreds of world class chefs.
Jamie Oliver is just a tv food personality and a nobody in the restaurant world. I don't know who the other guy in the picture is.
