9 foods Brits love according to Google

We Brits love our food, and it comes as no surprise that we are big fans of reading and researching our favourite dishes on the internet.

Learning about new recipes is one thing, but with regional and national favourites many of us have our own distinct method or variation, which is leading to more and more experimentation with the ‘classics’.

should we turn to tech to speed up service

Technology has improved vast portions of our work and personal lives, shrinking the world and making things considered implausible, possible.

But now the wet weather has all but dissapated, and passed us all by with a degree of calm setting in, the sun has reappeared. It’s almost as if it is summer once again.
