I've had all of them except the Birmingham Balti. I have no idea what that is.

I spent last fall about five miles from Melton Mowbray. I am not a big pork pie fan. To me they are under seasoned, as many traditional English dishes are, and are reminiscent of Spam in a crust.

I do like a good black pudding. It is a blood sausage and something that is going out of favor in England. Fewer butchers and shops are stocking it. That's a shame.

Most of the British eel is jellied and not really my cup of tea and though I've only had it a couple of times it isn't anything I'd go out of my way to order.

I'll take a good bit of Spotted Dick for my pudding after a good meal.

Take care,
