And here are some of your tweets:

Chefy @KazzyC63: Puds must be a Labour of Love; no need to be Conservative with helpings, be Liberal with the cream!

David Wright @davidw2710: surely dessert is Fudge pudding.

Pat Hanna @PatIrenephanna: Pie in the sky

John Bisby @BisbyJ: Hard Cheese

Mark Brown @MarkWhalesongs: Utter Pilchards - all of them

and Daniel Jenks @danjsafc: English Melton Mowbray and Scottish Haggis Coalition as a main.

Ric Soulby @Sulzerthrash: Greens should always be on the menu, they're good for you!

Heather @heatherindorset reminds us: For a lot of people, what's on the menu depends what's in the local food bank. Shame.

And finally, how about finishing with a coalition of cheese, courtesy of Daniel Williams:
