Traditional British Recipes

Traditional British recipes have come back into fashion in recent years – especially if the dishes are made with locally sourced food and seasonal produce. You’re likely to find old fashioned favourites on the menu in fashionable gastro-pubs and in restaurants serving modern British cuisine. Often these dishes will have been given a contemporary twist – using less fat, perhaps.

Homemade Food

But of course there’s nothing to beat homemade food, so if you want to try some UK culinary specialities at home, we’ve put a few of them here at Some of them are versions from celebrity chefs, others come from restaurants or speciality cook books. Do remember, they’re not necessarily quick to make. A number of dishes take time to prepare – soups and stews, for instance, need slow cooking for all the flavours to be released.

So set aside some time and have a go at some of these dishes. We’ll be adding more all the time, so bookmark this page and keep coming back.
