I sense a culinary war coming on

Whatever insult you might hurl at an Italian, you best be prepared to defend yourself if you question his culinary originality. I've known of family fueds lasting for decades over a grandmother claiming that a cousin stole her recipe for Sunday gravy and claimed it as her own.

Tony Blair better watch out, lest Berlusconi decide to defend his country's kitchenary honour against this most outrageous claim.

Since the Romans hung out in "Anglia" for a wee bit before the 12th century, and they knew of a dish called "lagania" which was flat pasta layered with cheese, it's not difficult to assay the real pedigree of this dainty dish. Nice try, Tony.
