Britain is known for its hearty/comfort meals; food that is filling and has been carried through the centuries. You could call them unfussy dishes, made with quality local produce matched with simple sauces.

Britain has many regional varieties: English, Scottish, and Welsh cuisine. Each has developed its own local dishes, many of which hold their name of origin, such as Cornish pasties, Yorkshire pudding, and Welsh cakes – which I will be giving you the recipe for very soon.

My favorite dishes in Britain derive from the Celtic agriculture and Anglo-Saxon times – meat dishes with savory herbs and vegetables. My favorite winter evening meal is sausage and mash with gravy (that’s brown gravy, not white): a simple, filling and tasty meal.
Sausage and Mash
Come weekends I love indulging in scones, clotted cream and jam with my cup of tea known as the “cream tea” meal. With this you get a scone that’s slightly warm and cut it in half with a little clotted cream on top of each half and then jam. It’s so yummy!
I find British food indulgent because of its heavy and filling ingredients, and I often find myself so sleepy after eating. What’s your favorite British meal?
