Britain and the bad food trap :: Marginal Revolution

Interesting comments on this topic over at Marginal Revolution. Did the industrial revolution and urbanization drive the UK into a bad food cuisine? And are recent improvements driven by demand - as more people travel to exotic places and acquire taste for better food, or by immigration driving introduction of new dishes, or by falling cost of bringing exotic ingredients in?

What I know is, it is to my benefit when others in my vicinity share the same taste for good food that I do.

Sharjah has a decent restaurant. No, really, that's its name, Decent Restaurant. I need to take a picture of the place and post it.

Oh British food the past century was FOUL. Ghastly, vile, stodgy, overcooked gloop.

Our ancestors were far more imaginative with their ingredients and flavours, and thank god for migrants that at least introduced a few spices to our hellish 20th century cuisine.
