Londons first Indian restaurant was opened up over 200 years ago, and he also used to deliver to customers
the first chinese restaurants opened around 1909, it was actually during the 50's that they became a popular thing
Pasta is like 1000 years old so it definitely was invented although didnt become popular in the UK until the 60's
if takeaways were only to do with maths, im not sure what people were doing with their fish and chips wrapped in newspaper lol
fish fingers were invented in the 1950s
the full list is here... http://www.ukprogressive.co.uk/british- ... 21336.html
whilst most are fairly accurate there is some that are questionable and just seems the opinion of one person rather than a collective reality of the rest of the country
probably some of its to do with how shit its worded, "such and such was not invented"... could really mean "such and such wasnt common, not around our end anyway"

it's just that you fell for it....
Posh people - and those a lot poorer but still cosmopolitan and sophisticated - in London and even in Liverpool and Manchester
1 ... knew about *real* pasta and cooked it often (NOT the tinned spaghetti suitable for Arctic explorers)
2 ... cooked and ate curry
3 ... ate oranges,bananas, pineapples and even grapes throughout the year
4 ... cooked and ate rice (but NOT - at that time - brown rice)
5 ... adored Hovis and other forms of brown bread (UNSLICED)
6 ... drank green tea
7 ... drank real coffee (NOT Nescafe, deemed suitable for Arctic expeditions - like tinned spaghetti)
8 ... knew about and consumed yogurt (which makes a brief appearance in Evelyn Waugh*s novel *Handful of Dust*)
9 ... cooked with olive oil (as Elisabeth David told them to) - although even quite prosperous households remained unswervingly loyal to hideous white lard
10 ... scrubbed and cooked unpeeled potatoes, urged to do so by the aforesaid Elisabeth David
A young woman blurted out *I was raised by savages - I was nearly twenty before I had spaghetti which hadn*t come out of a f-cking tin!* [/b]
Exactly, real coffee was popular and people in the UK were drinking real coffee in coffee shops well before the 1950's. The Kardomah cafes for example were a feature in many English cities, serving real coffee for quite some time.boozyoldman wrote: 7 ... drank real coffee (NOT Nescafe, deemed suitable for Arctic expeditions - like tinned spaghetti)
"Kardomah Cafés were an integral part of the British High Street (as well as further afield in places like Sydney, Australia) from the Edwardian era onwards peaking in the 1960s before gradually dying out.
The last remaining cafe in the UK is perhaps the most famous Kardomah Café of them all - sited in Swansea, it was the meeting place for Dylan Thomas and his peer group of writers, artists and musicians who actually became known as The Kardomah Gang.
The cafés were an offshoot of the main business, The Kardomah Coffee Company, which was founded in Liverpool in 1845. The early 1900s saw the company start opening up cafés, including a Leeds branch on Briggate in 1908." http://news.bbc.co.uk/local/leeds/hi/pe ... 128435.stm

oh and the tea bag was patented in 1902 and lipton produced tea bags in 1952
''In the United Kingdom, Sainsburys began a pilot experiment on distributing milk in bags in 2008 in conjunction with Dairy Crest. It was originally targeted at 35 stores at the same price as a regular 2-imperial-pint (1.1 l) plastic bottle of milk, the product was expanded through the North of England nationwide in 2010 at which point the bags retailed at a discounted price compared to traditional containers.''
On a similar vein, an interesting article here:
The British attitude to food has changed beyond all recognition in the past half century. So here's a little reminder of the people, trends, dishes and products that shaped the nation's tastebuds. https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyl ... .shopping1
More bland than Ruskie food.
IU'll choose Med, Latin, Thai, Southern USA any day.
As a whole Cambodian dishes suck as well.
