British Food Assembly Extract:

Dinner lady:        Not another chef! Have you never heard the expression “Too many cooks spoil the broth”?

Welsh chef:        Indeed. But I wouldn’t want anyone to think that we Welsh don’t eat as best as the rest!

Dinner lady:        So tell me. What traditional dishes do you serve?

Welsh chef:        Well, let’s start with our wonderful Laver bread or boiled seaweed!

English chef:       Sounds like it would go nicely with my fish and chips!

Welsh chef:        Then there is our famous Welsh rarebit – or melted cheese on toast.

Scottish chef:     A strange choice of name, to be sure!

Welsh chef:        (Indignantly) Well, speaking of odd names. What about your national dish? Haggis and neeps?

Scottish chef:     Huh! What about your Bara Brith?

Dinner lady:        What is that?

Welsh chef:        Why, Welsh fruit cake, of course!

English chef:       (Chuckling) And as for all those dishes with …. Leaks?! No wonder your plumbers are always busy!

Welsh chef:        (Sarcastically) Ho! Ho! And what about your ridiculous English names?  Now let’s see. Spotted Dick, Bangers and Mash, Bubble and Squeak,

Scottish chef:     (Interrupting) And what about those two puddings … that aren’t?!

Welsh chef:        You mean, Yorkshire pudding and black pudding?!

Scottish chef:     And how do you explain the most popular dish in England at the moment?

Welsh chef:        Curry!

(Both Scottish and Welsh chefs fall about laughing, whilst English chef stands, glowering)

Dinner lady:        Oh dear! What was I saying about “Too many cooks’? Now, gentlemen, if you don’t mind. I have a job to do. Feeding these children!
