In Kristina’s previous blogpost 5 Russian Meals English Will Never Dare To Try she discussed weird Russian food. This time, she  mocks some British cookery creations on the basis that not only Russian cuisine should be considered as the objects of fun there are plenty of the British dishes that tickle her throat just by a quick glance.

Let’s smash it:

1. Deep Fried Mars Bars

Seriously? Cooking Mars bars in batter? Sinking already extremely fat chocolate bars into the bowl of the figure enemy? What a Scottish perversion. This is a real caloriс bomb for your body. In Russian, the saying goes “isn’t your butt going to stick together”?

Meet the traditional Scottish sausage made from a sheep’s stomach stuffed with diced sheep’s liver, lungs and heart, oatmeal, onion, suet and seasoning. Yum-yum! What a shame I’ve never tried that one.

Who does like the taste of blood? Vampires and the British do. Black pudding is an Irish dish, to prepare which people add “4 cups fresh pig’s blood”. Faugh!

If you will ever spot a person eating Black Pudding – don’t hesitate to take out some garlic to banish the devil!

5. Jellied Eels

My favourite one. Looks like Londoners are not very particular in terms of the food choice and recipes.

Looks delicious, doesn’t it?  I would rather name it “Fish Under The Slime”.

Welsh Green Snot – the best food inventory ever. Even though, the British can consider some Russian food quite extraordinary and throw-up-like, this one wins the disgustingness competition beyond comparison just by the way it looks like.

“To eat well in England you should have breakfast three times a day.” – W. Somerset Maugham

After exploring some of the traditional British meals, I totally agree with the saying. Of course, they might taste beautiful, but I – as a true Russian – do not have balls to try them. Don’t want to die due to my cultural curiousity.
