A. A standard British meal is often described as being simple to prepare with a few high-quality ingredients. There is typically a main dish, baked or possibly fried, with one or two kinds of vegetable. There is often a sauce to accompany the meal, and dishes generally consist of foods grown within the country.
B. Over the centuries, British cuisine has changed to include foods from other countries, especially India-large parts of which were ruled by Britain until 1947. Indian food slowly made its way into British cuisine, and there are combinations of British and Indian dishes in the UK. The same is true in Gibraltar, a British territory at the tip of Spain, which has British food with a strong Spanish influence.
C. Some common British dishes have direct links with a particular area of the country. Yorkshire pudding for example, is often served with meat dishes and Christmas dinner. It comes from the town of York in the north of England. A tasty meat pie known as a Cornish pasty originates from Cornwall, in the south-west of England.
D. As with other cuisines, locally-grown food is mainly used in British cuisine. Agriculture in Britain has long centred round growing potatoes and green vegetables, and producing high-quality beef. Likewise, the British fishing industry has made fish and chips one of the most popular meals.
E. People around the world know one or two British dishes. These include the “full English breakfast” complete with bacon, eggs and sausage, and Sunday roast, which has roast beef, potatoes, vegetables and Yorkshire pudding. Perhaps a lesser-known type of British food is kippers – a small type of fish, salted and smoked, which is often served for breakfast.
F. Afternoon tea, consisting of a cup of tea served with biscuits or scones, has long been a part of British cuisine. Catharine, the Portuguese wife of King Charles II, introduced the idea of drinking tea in the afternoon to the English court in the 17th century. Aristocratic ladies soon copied this, and eventually both upper and middle classes in Britain began doing it.
G. Christmas dinner, a special meal eaten in many parts of the English-speaking world on Christmas Day, is another traditional part of British cuisine. It consists of turkey, stuffing, and a variety of sauces and vegetables. The meal did not always consist of turkey. This began in the 16th century, and King Henry VIII is thought to have been the first monarch to eat turkey for his Christmas meal.
