Anglo-Saxon Cuisine

When Donald Sutherland was working on Casanova Fellini cooked him a meal and asked what his favorite Canadian dish was to prepare.  Sutherland didn’t know what to answer.  What he should have said was, Maestro, Anglo-Saxons have no cuisine apart from meat and potatoes.  The British and the Canadians make fish and chips, which can be good, but we don’t cook it ourselves.  And there’s Yorkshire pudding, which you don’t even want to know about.  When we want to dine well we eat Italian, or Chinese, or Indian—unless we can afford French.  Otherwise it’s cowboy food.
