To cap it all

Someone called Genevieve Maitland Hudson gets it wrong in a Guardian blog thunkpiece on the EU common agricultural policy -
These are all measures which have the concerns of the local, the regional and the environmental at heart. And, lest it be thought that the EU is all mouth and no trousers, these measures have been highly effective.

See the style guide, pet -
all mouth and trousers
not "all mouth and no trousers"

If you're complaining about the homogenisation of culturally distinctive foodstuffs, you'll make a better argument if you don't bastardise culturally distinctive language while you're at it.
