The Roots of the British Empire

A decade before I began writing A Game of Thrones, I recall, I attended the British version of the famous Milford Writers. Workshop and submitted a short story for critique. One of the other writers there called it "food porn". But then again, he was British, from the land of boiled beef and mushy peas. I have always suspected that the British Empire was largely a result of Englishmen spreading out across the world looking for something good to it.
