The British Cuisine is the particular lot of cooking traditions and methods followed the United Kingdom. The history of British cuisine dates back to the period of Roman and Norman in England. The agricultural practices of those periods greatly influenced the recipes and culinary atmosphere long after those periods were done. The methods of stewing and stuffing meat originated from those eras and also methods like roasting and spicing. Obviously, the cuisine of a nation is influenced by the crops and vegetables reared in those nations. Lamb with mint sauce was a staple Welsh dish as Wales was famous for raising sheep. Bangers and mash, Yorkshire pudding, fish and chips, the Sunday roast, steak, kidney pie, roast beef, toad-in-the-hole, roast meat, Ploughman’‘s lunch, cottage pie, shepherd’‘s pie, gammon steak with egg, Lancashire hotpot bubble and squeak, English breakfast, black pudding, Bacon roly-poly and Cumberland sausage, are some of the important dishes of the region. Some of these traditions carried over to continental Europe and beyond, especially during the height of trading and colonization in the 17th and 18th centuries. It is a recent misconception that food in Great Britain is ill prepared and not tasty. During the 20th century there were lot of influences that led to the decline of food in U.K. But since then, due to the decrease of mass scale production of food that lead to an increase in quality, there has been a rebirth of English cuisine. The biggest influence may have come from the Indian subcontinent because the British ruled India for a long period of time. The Full English Breakfast of eggs, bacon, sausage, baked beans, half a tomato, hash browns and either fried bread or toast, fish and chips, roast beef and potatoes, and curry, are the most common dishes associated with the English people. But now, British citizens are being drawn towards vegetarianism and organic produce. Even the U.S. had an effect on the English cuisine. Britain was soon hit by the fast food movement that began in the U.S. and major fast food chains like Burger King, KFC and Taco Bell started to place themselves in Britain. This also led to a series of British originated fast food chains like Wimpy, Little Chef and Spudulike. Some of the key ingredients of English dishes are, haddock, mint sauce, malt vinegar, hot white horseradish sauce, sweet apple sauce, parsley liquor, suet, cucumber, potatoes, fruit, pickles, cheese, fish and vegetables. Some of the important dishes include the Black Pudding which is included in the traditional English breakfast. It was invented in Stornoway, Isle of Lewis. The Crown Roast Lamb has stuffing of apples, bread crumbs, onion, celery, and lemon. The Eccles Cake is a puff pastry stuffed with a spicy currant filling. The Hasty Pudding is a simple and quick steamed pudding of milk, flour, butter, eggs, and cinnamon. In the Irish Stew, lamb, potatoes, and onion are the common base. It can include any number of ingredients, depending on the chef. The Mincemeat is a dish where beef suet is used to bind chopped nuts, apples, spices, brown sugar, and brandy into a filling for pies or pasties. The Mulligatawny Soup is originally a south Indian dish but it has been adopted and adapted by the British. The soup contains chicken or meat or vegetable stock mixed with yogurt or cheese or coconut milk and is seasoned with curry and various other spices. It is sometimes served with a separate bowl of rice. In Trifle, layers of alcohol-soaked sponge cake alternate with fruit, custard and whipped cream. Jelly can also be added but most people do that for kids. Welsh Faggots is a dish in which pig''s liver is made into meatballs with onion, beef suet, bread crumbs, and sometimes a chopped apple. Westmoreland Pepper Cake is a fruitcake that gets its distinctive flavour from lots of black pepper. Honey, cloves, ginger and walnuts are the other ingredients. Welsh Rabbit is a dish where cheese is grated and melted with ale or milk. Then pepper, butter, mustard and salt are added. The mix is then spread over toast and baked. In British culinary history, pies and puddings are related phenomena. Both pies and pudding solved the problem of preparing dinners made with less expensive meat. Stew or other ingredients were covered with pies; puddings were made from butcher’‘s scraps tucked into a sheep’‘s stomach, then steamed or boiled. Pies have stayed as pies but now there are sweet variations, which have two crusts or only a bottom crust. Short dough or puff pastry can be used to make pie crusts. As time went by, people started using pudding as a more general term for a sweet or savoury steamed mixture and also as a word that generally describes desserts. The British breakfast is famous all over the globe. Nowadays it is becoming a myth because British people prefer to have a cup of coffee or have a bowl of corn, instead of indulging in the feast. This doesn''t mean that traditional breakfast is dead. It''s just that people don''t take the traditional breakfast every day of the week. The traditional English breakfast was invented in the 19th century, when people started to take porridge, bacon and eggs, toast and marmalade and fish in large amounts. Just like the traditional English breakfast, The Sunday Roast is also a famous family meal which consists of roasted meat server with roasted potatoes, vegetables and other ingredients. It began in the medieval times. The squire was served by the serfs for six days a week. Sundays were rest days. Serfs assembled after the church service to practice their battle techniques. Mugs of ale and feast of oxen roasted on a split were the rewards given to the serfs. Nowadays, the tradition is still in practice. It has survived because people can use the oven to roast while they are in the church. Joints of beef, pork, lamb or a whole chicken are the typical meats for roasting. Gammon, turkey goose and duck are eaten. Britain is also famous for its cheese. Cheese is made from cows, goats, sheep, reindeer, and buffalo. Britain started to make cheese thousands of years ago but they didn’‘t know the proper technique until the Roman’‘s started making good cheese. As it is obvious, British dishes are diverse just like the people of the nation. British dishes are known for their taste and flavour. It can be guaranteed that if anyone walks into a British restaurant, that they will be assured of enjoying a good meal. As many people have started following the British cuisine, many innovations and changes are being made with the dishes and people can be pretty sure that the innovations are going to make the dishes delicious. As a result, a number of restaurants featuring the British cuisines as the primary theme have popped up throughout the world and has a steady flow of customers from across the globe owing to the universal popularity of the British cuisine which is a result of the amalgam of delicate flavours and mouth watering dishes which keep the ones who opt for the British cuisine coming back for more.
