Fish and Chips
Perhaps nothing is more synonymous with British food than fish and chips. It’s so delicious. But, unfortunately, this dish can often be a bit disappointing if you don’t get it in the right place, so where you go is highly challenging. A top tip is to look for chip shops that cook their fish fresh to order- avoid a chippy that displays stacks of precooked fish behind the glass!
Chicken Tikka Masala
Though it may possess South Asian roots, there’s a lot of evidence to show that Chicken Tikka Masala was first made in Britain by a Bangladeshi chef in Glasgow. Nowadays, it’s regarded one of the country’s most popular dishes and is served in curry houses all over Britain. It really deserves the best of scores!
A complete and classic British meal, Shepherd’s Pie originally from Scotland and the North of England and is basically made from minced lamb and potatoes. Many families try this dish by making use of beef, though then it should actually be referred to as Cottage Pie, as shepherds only herd sheep (duh).
Beef Wellington is actually a fillet of steak coated in patê and finally rolled in pastry. Though the dish shares its great name with the famous Duke of Wellington, it, in fact, shares no link with the British nobility. In reality, it is thought that Beef Wellington was based around the French dish filet de bœuf en croûte (fillet of beef in pastry).
