    During a Christmas shopping walk through Durham city, we came upon a winter market selling some really interesting foods,   Curry, Baklava , Olives, Kebabs and burgers. Nothing unusual here, we live in a country which is multicultural, variations of curry, pizza, paella, pizza and burgers are now recorded as typical daily English food.


    NO NO NO I hear you say, these are  Indian, Italian, Spanish or German dishes. Well once upon a time, there were no tomatoes in Europe, does that mean that any tomato based dish is American?   When you visit your favourite burger bar, are you going for a german meal,   Rice and Pasta were introduced to Europe in the middle ages…so can risotto or spaghetti really be described as Chinese?
