A guessing game as to exactly which ingredients have been included is often the highlight of this conversation. The person who successfully identifies the elusive spice or herb will earn the admiration of all the other guests.

Do the French still pour scorn on British food?  The answer is yes and no.
Many French people still cringe when they evoke memories of school visits to England. Say the word ‘jelly’ and a look of horror will appear on their faces. Soon you will hear tales of bright green peas flavoured with mint, sandwiches for nearly all meals and that nightmare of British culinary culture; boiled meat.
