Focus on: British classics
Which one's your favourite?
This week is the start of British Food Fortnight, a great time for celebrating all the wonderful things produced in Britain - and all the delicious things we make with it. We thought we'd take a look at some of our favourite British classics. We will warn you though - this article is bound to get your mouths watering!
So British it's named after a Duke! We could have included the classic roast beef in here but there's something about the addition of the crunchy, chewy pastry and the rich pate that takes this classic dish to the next level for us. The fact it uses one of the nicest (and most expensive) cuts of beef helps too!
Toad in the Hole
A perfect marriage of two of our favourite ever things to eat - sausages and Yorkshire Pudding. All you need to add is a few roast potatoes, some nice veg and about a pint of homemade gravy.
Any kind of pie could have made the cut if we're being honest but Shepherd's is one of our favourites, especially if we're cooking it ourselves. The basic recipe is so easy to do, and satisfying to eat, and we all have our own secret ingredients to add to the mix. Ours is a dash of Worcestershire sauce and a teaspoon of Marmite - what's yours?
Fish and Chips
How could we make a list of classic British dishes and not include traditional fish and chips? This is one we don't tend to make ourselves, mainly because you can never quite replicate the taste of a decent portion of chip shop chips and a properly fried piece of fish in batter - eaten with a chip fork straight out of the paper, of course.
So there you have our top British classics - what would make it onto your list?
