American food here in the UK is like plastic food. There are some in supermarkets but mostly best avoided due to too many additives.
We eat pretty clean, natural foods and when you do that for years, your taste buds become as they are meant to and over processed food literally
tastes like plastic.
Processed food containing lots of additives tastes worse, is often unhealthy and more than likely more expensive.
There are such beautiful natural flavours in the world that people should appreciate more, like good flour, tomatoes, lemons, carrots, herbs.
I would rather eat a good tomato sandwich than something processed, homemade carrot soup, and chicken in homemade lemon sauce (lemon zest, juice,
arrowroot, sugar, water) with steamed rice than an over processed packet sauce that tastes like bleh.
Appreciate nature people, it's tasty!
There are lots of things you should try from round the world. Here are some simple though tasty dishes, some you might have tried already though are
always favourites, naturally flavoursome.
Swedish style pickled herring
Chicken Korma (well spiced and authentic version)
Naan bread from a tandoor
Thai chicken curry
Squid in salt and pepper
