Prezza hates foreign muck
Jabba: Deputy PM John Prescott.
A snail: The French love eating them - dipped in garlic.

BEANS-MAD Deputy PM John Prescott had lunch with The Sun — and revealed he HATES foreign food.
Mr Prescott, 67, invited us to join him after we told how he piled baked beans on top of his meal at the Home Office canteen.
The podgy politician admitted he often cannot face the grub served up when on Government business abroad — and longs for simple British fare.
Two Jags said: “I like plain food, I don’t like fancy food. When they’ve mucked around with it they’ve taken away the natural taste of it. French food is too heavy for me.
“We were in South Africa and they had alligator and giraffe but I just couldn’t bring myself to eat them. It’s difficult in China too because you don’t know what’s in the bloody dish.”
Mr Prescott stressed the meal he was pictured eating last week was a stew, not a curry as we said.
And he revealed that his favourite evening meal at home is bacon or sausage — with beans.
Tucking into a Whitehall canteen vegetable stew — with beans on top — he went on: “I like beans with everything. I eat a lot of beans. I have beans on toast at night and I make a beans toastie. But I won’t have them cold.”
He added: “This gourmet food, let’s face it, it’s got to a stage where it’s more like constructing food not cooking. I was in a restaurant the other week and to be honest I didn’t like it.
“I had chopped liver and mash. And the liver was in some fancy sauce and the sauce was covering the liver taste, the mash and the onions.”
