Our new friend has posted several threads about 'food delicacies' around the world. I don't think she's actually been any of those places so probably info she's found on-line.

(Coincidentally just now as I was reading this I received an e-mail from 'Fort hum and mason' re some of their new hampers . . . spooky )

Maybe I should create a bunch of random threads about things to see/do/eat in country X and drive up traffic to my blog.

bingo . . .

Per Fodors rules -- folks can put their website/e-mail/blog in their profiles . . . as long as they aren't promoting it in their posts. But yes, it would help if one had actually been to the places or eaten the dishes they write about

So you're saying that I should not hit send on the post I wrote about the twenty most "disgusting" foods in Europe?

This is very entertaining, not just the typos, but also the syntax (or lack thereof).

What on earth is "Scandal Water?"

I do enjoy some Clouted Cream!

Scandal water is a very posh place in an even posher London hotel -- and it is no doubt the OP has not been there.

Ah, Janis, thank you. I should have Googled before asking, but assumed it was a typo. I am reminded of the old saying about what happens, when one assumes.

Sorry - but all of the above is nonsense.

Esp afternoon tea in London in the 7th century. (I assume the OP meant 17th century but copies it wrong - since in the 7th there was no trade between the UK and the far east and I'm not sure anyone grew or brewed tea even there.)

(And for anyone inclined to disagree I am talking about afternoon tea - not herbal teas from local plants that medicine people might have brewed for medical reasons.)

The OP seems to just prowl the interweb thingy looking for info about food and re-gurgitates it here . . . typos are to be expected

Even the 17th century is too early by about 200 years.
