Hi i am wywy and i have not visited Britain  before , so i don't know  any thing about British food  ; but i know people who have been to London .They admitted that food in Britain isn't very good
My English teacher have been to London , but i did not ask him about how much good the British food is .
In my city where i live in Egypt there are not different sorts of restaurants so i just eat Egyptian food and other Arabic food . The food in my country Egypt is very, very good and people all over the world of course know that .I think i am lucky to be from Egypt maybe because i am  interested in food !!      

Hi everybody. I am so happy to see the new podcast.

Hello Tom, Rob, Tess and Ravi,
I don`t know british food but always I`m hearing about this. Perhaps part of this is true, part is a mistake, few information.
Brasil is a big country and the food is variable, depends of each region, there are a lot of tipical  food. I love rice and beans, vegetable salads and trout. 
I like to watch cuisine programe tv, and many of then are healthy, practical and fast. The problem is after then I´m feeling starving!
The programe is very nice, congratulations!
best regards, Fah

Hi everyone,
Hi Adam & Rob, a million thanks for highlighting my previous comments, and many thanks especially for your wish on my luck, and I'm over the moon ATM.
In my opinion it was probably a mistake to say that British food is bad, because there are so many kind of food out there & I'm pretty sure that some of them are really delicious indeed.
To be perfectly honest, I love some of the British food. For examples; I love roast lamb with mint sauce, Sunday roast (consisting of roast beef, roast potatoes, vegetables and Yorkshire pudding[Yorkshire pudding I'm prefer not over baked]), Fish and chips (I prefer cod fish than any other fish), Kidney steak pie, Scones, Lemon meringue (my favourite dessert), Cheese cakes, and yes, I don't like any dessert with custard in it.
I don't really know, to be honest, about eating out in my country. Presently I live in HK, and oddly enough I would definitely say that HK is the food paradise in the whole of Asia, you could easily find any kind of restaurant which serve various cuisine from over the world (British cuisine, Spanish cuisine, Japanese cuisine, Mexican cuisine, Thai/Indian/Chinese/Italian/French or even Lebanese cuisine. As fahr as I'm concerned, they've the best bargain on offer and I guarantee you'll love visiting HK if you do.
Personally I love spicy food, especially Indonesian/Thai/Malaysian/Singaporean cuisine, but not so much Indian cuisine though because it is too rich for me.
The best of luck for all member of the Elementary podcast.
