The press have been quick to leap on a new Reader's Digest survey which sets out to show that Britons aren't too knowledgeable about classical music.
Except that it doesn't.
Bocconcini are in fact either ball-shaped cheeses like mozzarella or anything served in small pieces such as bocconcini di vitello (pieces of veal). There's a world of difference between a ball-shaped cheese and a cheese ball. As a cursory fact-check of the press release would prove, even to the most hardened Pot Noodle lover on the news desk.
In any case, I'm more impressed by the fact that 96% of respondents realised that Bocconcini *isn't* a classical composer.
