Vindication at last! I’d be a disappointment to the Crown if I didn’t take the opportunity to gloat, for one glorious, undignified moment, over the recent victory of British cuisine. Fourteen, yes, fourteen of the world’s fifty top-ranked restaurants are in none other than Great Britain. After withstanding years of teasing and jokes about British cuisine (usually something along the lines of “if it can’t be boiled, it can’t be British”), we’re finally proving that there’s more to our culinaria than bangers and mash and baked beans on toast. What’s that line again, victory has never tasted so sweet?
