One of the things that London has become well known for is its wonderful range of food and restaurants. But this hasn't always been the case - and for some people, it still isn't!
This week, we hear some very harsh opinions about what English people eat - and we try to find out why things aren't as good as they should be.
Listen out for the answers to these questions during the programme. You can download a copy of the script and an mp3 version at the bottom of this page:
lacking in taste, without good flavour
types of long, soft seating on which more than one person can sit at the same time. Sofas also usually have a back and arms to lean on.
can't be bothered
if you're not interested enough to spend the time or effort to do something and don't think it's important, you can't be bothered
I can't be bothered to wash the dishes tonight.
to be practised (in something)
to have done something several times so that you're good at it
lists of the dishes that you can choose to eat, usually in a restaurant
what is possible based on facts rather than hopes or wishes
