I do a regular drawing for a magazine called the Best of British, and this is one of the series.The articles generally reflect on past English institutions and the changes we see today.We were never very good at cooking over here, but now we are better at it than the French!They seem to be unlearning everything they have had for centuries and we seem to be taking in what they are discarding.
That aside those programmes on the telly featuring people trying to be master chefs is part of the inspiration for this drawing.
They appear to spend three hours or so refining their cooking into something that looks like it’s the latest hat creation from Ladies Day at Royal Ascot and then serve up just a few precious ounces on a huge plate.Daft.
Then who does the washing up?
