As evidenced by my love of Doctor Who, William Shakespeare, and the entire range of BBC America programming, I’m a bit of an Anglophile (ok, beyond that…as previously mentioned, I own a Queen Elizabeth diamond jubilee mug, and I most definitely woke up early to watch the Royal Wedding a few years back.)  As just such an Anglophile, one of my least favorite things to hear is “all British food is disgusting.”  Most people think of British food as black pudding (don’t ask) or spotted dick (actually, quite delicious- it’s  basically cake, people!) and of course there are some real losers out there in the spectrum of British gastronomy.

Between good ole’ channel 225 and the staggering array of BBC content available on Netflix, it truly is surprising that I venture out of my house to make a living. The main reason being is the Beeb has been putting out some seriously superior content lately. If you’ve never watched some of these shows, now is the time to start.
