|British Food Fortnight takes place this year from the 18th September to the 3rd of October.
“The event will celebrate the diverse and delicious range of food that Britain produces with promotions and tastings in shops, all-British menus in pubs and restaurants, food and cookery lessons in schools and glorious food festivals. Whether you are shopping in supermarkets or local shops, or eating in pubs or restaurants you will be able to enjoy the best of British food during the Fortnight.” Love British Food.
So what is your take on typical British Food? Sausages & Mash, Fish, Chips & Mushy Peas, Scotch Eggs, Cottage or Shepherd’s Pie, Chips & Gravy, Sunday Lunch aka Roast Beef Dinner with Yorkshire Puddings, Bacon Buttie, Scones with Jam, Afternoon Tea, Cucumber Sandwiches, Marmalade on Toast, the Full English Breakfast perhaps?
If you do nothing else to celebrate British Food during these two weeks please “Buy British” just check the packet and make sure you are Buying British, some products that you would think are British are of EU origin but sound very British like “Wiltshire Cure Bacon” check the packet and “keep it local”!
