You are very welcome. I tried not to go for the jugular (hey! Is that it?)
My other half says rocket is like a favourite carpet (“a rug you love”) and the study of why some people prefer to cover wooden floors is known as ‘rocket science’.
I’ll stop now - and get my coat. :wink:

Seriously, though, where on earth does the word arugula come from? Well this seems to be the explanation…

The toast looks a little strange. Could it be a Welsh rarebit?

Sorry, been there, forced to eat that. Not doing that again if I can possibly avoid it.

For non-Brits - that is genuinely what many, many British people up to the late 80s thought Italian food was.

And they liked it…

Of course, when they went to Italy, they didn’t like it because you couldn’t get proper ravioli.

No, that’s just what the UK considers to be ‘healthy’ bread.

It’s the wholemeal version of the soft, squishy baked flour product.

You wouldn’t want to eat your sugar and salt ‘tomato’ sauce concoction on unhealthy bread…

Since 1777…

It’s right there on the label.

I’m not far from the Badger brewery. It’s pretty good stuff, as beer goes.

Very big in Estonia. Beware if you’re on a night out in Tallinn, those things are everywhere.

Ah, not just a regional speciality then, but a late night after drinking regional speciality, served by the local incarnation of Cut-Me-Own-Throat Dibbler.

Any seasoned traveller soon learns to avoid anything wished on them as a‘regional speciality’, because all the term means is that dish is so unpleasant the people living everywhere else will bite off their own legs rather than eat it.

Although on a sliding scale from cherries to the contents of my daughter’s nappy (she caught me by surprise) lamprey isn’t that much worse than eels, really.

Technically, it’s a re-gifting. You’re welcome, Blighty.

I guess the next thread is Weird Things the Dutch Eat.

Nice segue back to the original thread.

I’d like to add Black Bun, which is the ‘why not both’ answer to the cake/pie dilemma:

There is literally nothing the Scots won’t fry, encase in pastry, or both.

Except for fresh fruit and vegetables… :wink:

My favorite Weird Dutch Food that I wish would catch on in America are bitterballen, basically deep-fried gravy. Available at Dutch McDonalds as the McKroket or the kroketten at FEBO.
