London, Jan 4 (ANI): Gordon Brown is certainly a health freak, for when asked to nominate his favourite dish, the UK leader plumped for Rumbledethumps - a gloopy mixture of mashed potato and cabbage.
The Prime Minister is among a number of politicians who have named their favourite foods for a fundraising book in aid of the Donaldson's school for the deaf in Edinburgh.
Brown has claimed in the book that he got a taste for the dish as a boy, recalling how he would come back from watching Raith Rovers matches to find the dish on the table, prepared by his mother, reports the Scotsman.
The book reveals that his 'economical' eating habits are shared by his fellow politicians too.
In keeping with the tough times, Scottish Secretary Jim Murphy claims that the meal he yearns for more than any is a bowl of "hearty lentil broth".
Keeping up the spartan theme, First Minister Alex Salmond claims his favourite dish is Cullen Skink, the soup traditionally made from smoked haddock, potatoes and onions. (ANI)
