  1. Reasonably diverse, but not totally: all this talk of Russia and Eastern Europe reminds me of how little influence their cuisine has in the UK. I generally prefer it to Asian food (I’ve just had pickled herrings for lunch, delicious, and my favourite mustard is a Russian variety that is like a cross between French Dijon and a very fine wholegrain!).
