The coronavirus lockdown means that Brits currently aren’t able to eat out at their favourite restaurants.
Which is a shame, as it’s one of our favourite pastimes.
Instead, we’re stuck at home relying on takeaway and home made food.
Luckily, that’s not always the lesser option according to one chef.
Gemma Simmonite, chef and co-owner of Gastrono-me in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, has explained that there’s one dish you should avoid ordering in restaurants.
She claims it’s always better home made.
And the dish is… a roast dinner.
Do you have a dish which is always better home cooked? Let us know in the comments…
Gemma claims she’s never had a restaurant Sunday dinner which tasted better than a home made one.
The chef told the Mirror : “I don’t think I’ve ever had a Sunday roast in a restaurant that comes close to a home-made one.
"Because I’m vegetarian the vegetables in my roast can often be the headline act.
“In a restaurant they often travel to the table looking entirely sorry for themselves, lacking in variety, and either bullet hard, or overcooked to the point of mashing.
“Plus, they’re never seasoned or buttered, which in my book is completely unforgivable."
Gemma went on to say that restaurant roast potatoes were always disappointing.
She commented: “Roasties never seem to have that oily craggy thing going on either?
“Instead they’re invariably floury and depressingly uniformed in shape."

Gemma continued: "A roast is a labour of love, one that most of us have all grown up with and associated with warmth and family.
“I guess that cannot be translated into a single and usually frenetic service."
On an opposite note, however, the chef says there is one meal which is invariably better when made by a pro than at home.
She claims that it’s “never worth the effort” if you don’t have a proper pizza oven.
This is because regular ovens can’t get hot enough to rise and blister the crust.
Oh well, that’s what Deliveroo is for we suppose…
