You can divide the world into those who like and those who don’t like Marmite, or at least the Anglo-Saxon world, since the rest of us are likely not to have heard of Marmite ever before. So for the uninitiated, the BBC’s Good Food section (and I can hear a roar of cynical sneering coming from the Marmite-haters on the left here) will tell you how to do Marmite properly. More importantly, the comments section will give you another lesson into British culture, which is its famed black humour. So what can we learn here? British food: No. British humour: Yes.
