Britain's Favourite Food County

Blimey, the world and his wife seem to want me to advertise their cookery competitions just recently - I don't bother putting half of them online. For example, the most recent request I got was for an ITV food competition and the 'cut off' date for applications was only a few days away. Given that when I last looked the ITV had a bigger media presence than I have, I didn't feel any need to promote their wares, after all they never think of promoting mine!

That said, the website Love British Food is giving people the opportunity to vote for their favourite food County. Just for the fun of it.

It's a great idea, but given that Scotland and Wales are not split into Counties for the purpose of the vote, what chance do poor old Leicestershire's 600,000 population have against 5.2 million Scots? Let alone those of Rutland or the Isle of Wight.

That's the second competition this week where the organisors just haven't thought things through.
