English singer Adele Laurie Blue Adkins sat down for British Vogue’s The Ultimate British Taste Test on 18 October and the names of the dishes she tried had tongues wagging. 

ADELE ON ‘THE ULTIMATE BRITISH TASTE TEST’

Adele first showed viewers how she likes to make a cup of tea. She then put on a blindfold which made her feel like she was on Fifty Shades of Grey.

The Hello hitmaker was on a roll and identified the first dish as “cockles”. 

Cockles are described as small, edible bivalves. 

“Last time I had cockles must have been… I was definitely under 10. We used to go to Whitstable sometime, down to the beach. When I say a beach though I mean a very British beach with pebbles and all that,” said Adele. 

“They were yummy and very nostalgic,” she added.

She then went on to eat and (mostly) correctly guess pork pie, a breakfast meal, fish and chips, banoffee pie and spotted dick! Spotted dick is a a traditional British baked pudding made with dried fruit and often served with custard.
