  5. People were less knowledgeable then about ‘foreign food’. Pasta was rarely seen. Certainly not where I lived. Just good old British food. It was easy to con the Brits of the time because they knew nothing of this exotic food.
    And it appeared on a serious news program–Panorama no less. Again, there was no fake news in those days, and Panorama was a highly respected programme, so why would they produce something not true?
    Simpler times. But it’s got to be the best ever!
