Re: Traditional english dishes

Welcome to the forum Andaluz Chef  smile

When I think of traditional English foods I think of...

*'Roast Dinners ' on a Sunday
*Full English breakfast ...although to me a 'full english breakfast should also include fried bread .
*Fish and Chips
*Bangers and mash ( sausages and mashed potato ) often served these days with an onion gravey
*Steak and Ale Pie
*Pork Pie
*Cornish Pasty
*Bedfordshire Clanger
*Lancashire hotpot
*Cottage pie (made with beef)
*Shepherds pie (made wth lamb)
*Stargazzey pie
*Bubble and Squeek
*Liver and onions
*Game Pie
*Toad in the hole
*ploughmans lunch ... bread cheese and pickles
*different breads like the cottage loaf , milk bread
*Scones with Strawberry jam and clotted cream
*Steamed puddings
*Apple pie
*Fruit crumble's
*jelly and icecream
*Junket
*Eves pudding
*Sussex pond pudding
*Knickerbocker Glory
*Queen of puddings
*spotted dick
*Bakewell tart
*jam rolypoly
*syllabub
*summer pudding
*trifle

I could go on for ages as these are all dishes that have been around for many years and many of them now have a protected status.

British cuisine has been changing rapidly and Chicken Tikka Masala is a mre modern addition to the list.

As for Vegetarians, when I was growing up and not wanting to eat meat , I was considered weird, if ever I went to a restaurant I was considered a huge problem and was mostly given an omelet to eat .. beleive me I have eaten some really bad omlets in my time ... then there was a phase of giving vegetarians a baked potsto filled with cheese and not much else.. then came the era of the little tart ..now there are more vegetarians around and there are pasta dishes and risottos .
I dont think being vegetarian featured much at all in traditional English food from years ago but nowadays vegetarians age generaly given a couple of choiceson a menu.

Re: Traditional english dishes

The problem with a full English is  most cafes serve the cheapest ingredients, like the 3pence sausage.
You really need to buy the ingredients, try Borough Market, if your in London Ginger Pig and Silfield. Dont go to the supermarket.
I am lucky , I am surounded by farms. But even I have to wait for a Farmers Market for my baccon. Look for rare breed (fat still on) 100% outdoor, free range.
Sunday lunch, Roast Beef with all the trimings

The French call us Roast Beefs.
That said October to Feb is game season (roughly,it varies slightly, with different animals). Pheasant is abundant, in our region and many others. Roast Pheasant is well worth looking at.
