How to Cock English Food
Most traditional food
recipes have a history. Some were passed down through generations of cook’s
others were chance creations that were so well liked that they were taken by
cooks up and made them classics. This section of the website is my collection
of things I loved and tried and have found. You will find recipes for a British
breakfast, which is a lot more than toast on the run or eggs and bacon. Soups
are true soul food. They can be soothing or uplifting, invigorating or calming.
They’re simple to make and may feed an audience, While Salads can turn a
summertime mid-day picnic into a stylish eating experience.
Sandwiches are a great English invention that is sadly overtaken
by the supermarkets. But make your own and you know the wonders of a sandwich that
is good, if you eat it — tasty, warming, comforting. Dinner should be any of
these and we. Puddings are an English love affair. Summer desserts are fruity
light and right to be eaten outside in sunlight. And winter comes, we look for
warming to baked puddings, puddings, heating crumbles and apple pie. Drinking
tea can be an institution in England. And only a cuppa will not do. There is to
be something together with it: a slice of cake, a biscuit, a bun or a scone.
Since the consequences of your labors are around to be enjoyed,
and just jam making, pickling, and preserving are kitchen delights. While
everybody can name at least 3 English beverages, what about all the others? The
old fashioned thoroughly tested ones? What about mulled wine, shandygaff,
claret cup, sloe gin, mead, a bowl of punch or a glass of cherry brandy?
Christmas with no myriad of traditional recipes just would not be Christmas.
