British Cooking Recipes: let's hear 'em...

Toad in the Hole, Yorkshire Pudding, Bubble and Squeak, Neeps and Tatties, Haggis, Gammon and Pineapple---I happen to love British Isles cooking, pub food, home cooking, you name it. The fact no small part of my ancestry [hence family recipes] is from the British Isles has to account for some of it---but I've been up in Scotland at a pub where the owner, with lovely bangers and mash to offer, apologized that they were behind the times and didn't have a McDonalds. Ouch! We assured them we vastly preferred what we had on our plates, and toasted them with a nice sip of Scotch.

  1. As you may have gathered, British food, rightly or wrongly, has a bad reputation here in the States (rightly for my taste, though Yorkshire pudding with a roast can be delicious).

      1. will put my thinking cap on and post some of my recipes, thinking things like shepherd's pie, fish pie, bread and butter pudding, victoria sandwich cake. My problem is that I don't use recipes so cook by feel and taste not to exact quantities. I am just on my way out for some ice cream but will post later or tomorrow.

          1. Sticky Toffee Pudding. this recipe is a bit different than the one I tried(mine used treacle), but it is good. Even my British colleagues said it was authentic!


            I have the Cooking of the British Isles cookbook, and I have yet to try the syllabub, but that is in the works.
