i like the upbeat terms used with citrus, like zest, or supremes.

what about sweetbreads? it's neither sweet, nor a bread. they're 2 types made from organs, thymus and pancreas.

I once read somewhere that it was originally a medieval English slur against the Welsh. Because it has no actual meat in it, the dish was called "Welsh Rabbit" to mock the Welsh. Supposedly they were too uncivilized and poor to cook meat in their dishes. In later days, they changed it to "Rarebit" instead to try to no longer offend the Welsh.

Ooh! The picture is not Spotted Dick. This delicious pudding (Spotted Dick) is white with dark spots like a Dalmation.

And yes, the correct name is Welsh Rabbit, not Rarebit. It is a kind of joke. (And speaking as a Welshman, we have never considered this a slur or a jibe.)

Incidentally, a friend has told me about English Monkey. Anyone know about this American dish? No monkies in this, obviously.

Never heard of an American dish called English Monkey. Monkey bread, though.

Monkey bread doesn't count, it actually has monkey in it.

Here is the recipe for English Monkey
1 cup stale bread crumbs
1/2 cup soft mild cheese, cut in small pieces
1 cup milk

1 tablespoon butter
1 egg

1/2 teaspoon salt
Few grains cayenne

Soak bread crumbs fifteen minutes in milk. Melt butter, add cheese, and when cheese has melted, add the soaked crumbs, the egg slightly beaten, and seasonings. Cook for three minutes, and pour over toasted crackers which have been spread sparingly with butter.

Incidenally, a speciality at Chinese banquets is called Monkey Brains, It is actually a fungus, thank goodness! No brains and no monkey.
