Ross Mathews Repulsed By Beans on Toast on ‘The Drew Barrymore Show’

It looks like Stanley Tucci is going to have to work extra hard on his upcoming British food show to prove to Ross Mathews that England is home to some fine cuisine. During today’s episode of The Drew Barrymore Show, the Drew’s News co-host painstakingly choked down one popular U.K. dish: beans on toast.

Drew Barrymore and Mathews were joined at this morning’s table by British actress Kirby Howell-Baptiste, who assured the two that the food in her country is not as bad as people say.

“Whenever people say to me, ‘The food in England is terrible,’ I say, ‘You haven’t been to the right places,'” she explained. “I think England is like New York — the food is amazing, there’s so many different cultures and people.”

Mathews, however, wasn’t buying it. He told Barrymore and Howell-Baptiste, “Every time I go on vacation to the U.K., I come back and I lose weight.” When Howell-Baptiste said she would hook him up with the right places, he replied, “Give me a list because every time I go, at breakfast they try to give me toast with beans on it and I’m like, ‘What is going on?'”

Careful what you say, Ross, because Drew may very well whip out three plates of beans on toast and you’ll be forced to try it out on television … which is exactly what happened on this morning’s episode.

What do you think? Be the first to comment.

As the two women happily snacked on the treat, Mathews struggled to swallow one bite. While Barrymore described the British delicacy as “sweet” and “buttery,” and Howell-Baptiste pointed out that it’s “delicious” as the “bread gets all soggy,” Mathews couldn’t help but hide his disgusted face.

“You know what it tastes like?” he sarcastically asked the table. “Beans on toast.”

I guess we know what he won’t be ordering on his next trip to the U.K.

The Drew Barrymore Show airs on weekdays at 9:30 a.m. ET on CBS.
