Hi everyone ! I'm from Vietnam and I am quite fat haha. Because I am voracious, sometimes I also envy with my younger sister's meal. So when I watch this video, I feel hungry and want to enjoy these foods immediately. I see that some chefs seem to be professional !

The food in England has many characteristics of Eastern Countries. It's an interesting place to explore food from different countries and learn a lot from them. Therefore, I love food in Britain

Your video is so wonderful! I really like it! I haven't eaten British food yet but thanks for this video, I found that the cuisine here is extremely diverse with each dish bearing a unique feature of a cultural region. It also looks very delicious and fantastic. I hope that if I have a chance to go there, i will directly enjoy the taste of those dishes.

Hi guys, I'm from Viet Nam, so I'm learning about your culture and cuisine so that I can easily study and understand the culinary culture.
Your and my culinary culture is different a lot. I think my cuisine is more simple than your cuisine but i feel british food is very tasty and fantastic. British food looks very delicious and has got many different types of food.
I will learn more and one day I would like to introduce my country's culinary culture.

Britain - mix of the culture from different countries and food is not an exception! So in Britain you can taste food of countries which are not well-known (but also very delicious).
If you want to taste meals from other countries, you must to visit Britain

As I understood, modern British cuisin contains food from different coutries.Of course, the British still have their original dishes, but they (the dishes) should have changed a lot under the influence of cooking traditions of the UK settlers. As for me, I'm interested in tastying pure British food. Famous British pudding, for example. (Yes, I'm quite a sweet tooth ^^)
