BARBRA Streisand says there is nothing batter than British grub such as fish and chips, pasties, and shepherd’s pie.
The Oscar-winning singer, 76, revealed she is a massive fan of our traditional food.
Barbra said: “I love coming here. And the food of course.
“I never understood why many years ago people said the food in London was not great.
“I came and I thought my Yorkshire pudding, my roast beef, everything that they made, my pasties.
“And scones, of course, with clotted cream.”
The You Don’t Bring Me Flowers singer, who has starred in films including A Star Is Born and Meet the Fockers, can’t resist tucking into shepherd’s pie knocked up by an assistant.
American Barbra, speaking to BBC Radio 2’s Zoe Ball, said: “I have my assistant who’s been with me 45 years and she makes the . . . what do you call the thing we eat all the time? With the mashed potatoes on top . . . shepherd’s pie!”

Barbra said of 1983 movie Yentl: “When I was making Yentl in England, four o’clock every day we stopped for tea and scones and pasties. I mean, if I love it, I have to share it with my cast and crew.”
The Yorkshire pudding was voted the nation’s favourite regional dish in a poll of 2,000 adults in February.
The savoury pud pipped the Cornish pasty and Bakewell tart to claim the top-taste crown.
