Fast Food: Casserole

Food stands for Food Options for Omnivorous Diets.

As our lives have become busier, there has been less time for food. However, one solution has been to eat ‘Fast Food’. And it seems that Britain's favourite kind of fast food is Casserole.

Visit any high street and you’re bound to see a Brown Diamond, a Casserole Nights, a Mama’s Kasseroles, a McChunky’s (Original Dundee Casseroles) or The Casserole Veranda, Tandoori Casserole, Sir Stew, Picasseroles, Imhotep Casseroles or, most likely, the market leader: O’Gravy’s.

But now, thanks to British entrepreneur, Clive Pounds, fast food has got faster: Big C’s, the world's first fully automated casserole restaurant.

There will be no waiters, no queuing, no fuss. Simply fax your order to the kitchen and within seconds a computer will serve piping hot casserole to your table.
