Best British food

Postby mrswdk on Wed Aug 14, 2019 4:28 am

People often say there is no good British food, but they are obviously wrong. There are lots of tasty British foods that foreigners are unlucky if they never get to sample. In this thread we can discuss them.

The poll may be updated and evolve over time as other great British foods are suggested.

Brown sauce. You probably are not aware but you can't even get it in most places in the United States.

Did you know that Big Ben is currently having repairs performed on it, meaning it has been covered in scaffolding for months, and so the label on brown sauce bottles has been temporarily changed to cover the image of Big Ben in scaffolding?

Big Ben in scaffolding ... Ha ha ... that's a good one. Are you sure you're a Brit?
The scaffolding is actually on the Elizabeth Tower ... Big Ben, the clock inside the tower is undergoing some renovations but it's not clear from the reports how much; most of the work is on the clock "face" itself.

Christmas Pudding...wtf uk?

When a recipe for something changes dramatically over and over throughout the course of it's history it's kind of a sign you should let the tradition go. After 500+ years it's still disgusting. Also who the fucks puts dirty money in their food?

Why does the bottle with the Best By Date 01/01/21 have the scaffolding, but the bottle with the Best By date of 01/03/21 has NO scaffolding?

Of course I know Swickdick is up to his tricks. We're not required to fly into a blind rage every time he does something like that. As someone, Edmund Muskie I think, once said, "a true test of power is the ability to use restraint and show a measured response."

So you literally say that you're not blind to what he's doing, but you want to see if he'll take it further. That's kinda dumb, Duk.

When I was writing that post I considered clarifying that distinction, but then decided that I really don't care.

#1, Why in TF would someone have astroturf for living room carpet??

#2 Isn't Shepard / Cottage Pie originally Scottish? Haggis was mentioned....also Scottish. In the OP, I assume then that "British" means Great Britain and therefore includes Ireland / Scotland?

So....Shepard / Cottage pie is absolutely my #1 choice. Make that shit all the time.

Shepherd's pie.
"Cos it's made from lamb or mutton.

I'm afraid the logic doesn't extend to Cottage Pie.

Also, although my vote would be with Pikeletts, Bara Brith should be up there too. I made a bara brith bread-and-butter pudding when I was attempting to get on Masterchef back in the 90's when it was a cooking contest, not a reality show. Jean-Christoff Novelli was very impressed.

The term cottage pie was in use by 1791, when the potato was being introduced as an edible crop affordable for the poor (cf. "cottage", meaning a modest dwelling for rural workers).
The term shepherd's pie did not appear until 1854, and was initially used synonymously with cottage pie, regardless of whether the meat was beef or mutton. However, in the UK since the 20th century, the term shepherd's pie is used only when the meat is lamb.

Great Britain is England, Wales and Scotland. Neither Northern Ireland nor the Republic of Ireland are British (although the former is part of the UK).

Cottage pie is a'ight. Keefie's suggestion of pie and mash is superior though.
