Alarming reading in the Guardian this weekend about the fake food scandal. 38% of food tested was not what it claimed to be, including herbal slimming 'tea' that was neither herb nor tea, but glucose powder and a withdrawn prescription obesity drug. Other interesting recipes included 'meat emulsion' (which I'm guessing comes in Pantone colours) instead of ham. And if you want sprinkles on your cupcakes, how about some tasty non-edible plastic film? Yummy. They found 'cheese' made from non-dairy fat that has veered so far from its origins it's now a delicious-sounding foodstuff called 'cheese analogue'. All I can say is, look carefully at what's on the end of your fork next time you pop out for some pub grub.
