The roast beef of old England is only half the story: at last the world has recognised that our native cuisine is well worth a detour. Tuck into crumbles, casseroles and cakes to see why!
This is a complete meal for four, which has a great deal going for it in terms of child appeal yet, at the same time, will be equally appreciated by young-at-heart adults.
Whenever I see cheesecake on a menu I'm filled with longing – there's something awfully comforting about cheesecake – but the question always arises as to whether it will or will not be cloying (and if it is, what a waste of calories!).
Previously, I have made these with mascarpone, but this low-fat alternative is, I feel, every bit as good as the rich version and the perfect accompaniment to any fruit compote.
A good way to avoid making breadcrumbs, and therefore save time, is to keep a packet of polenta (cornmeal) in the cupboard. It makes an excellent coating for all types of fish.
With a name like this, it's hardly surprising that Canary puddings are such a hit in the restaurant at Norwich City FC. Whether you're a Norwich supporter or not, this dessert will score every time!
Crab is one of those quintessentially summer ingredients: try this wonderful quick and easy salad for a real treat!
One of the quickest and easiest recipes on record - so there's no excuse for not keeping the biscuit tin topped up with these teatime goodies. Use whatever combination of fruit and nuts you like!
This is the perfect accompaniment to Classic Roast Pork with Crackling, as the acidity of the apples offsets the richness of the pork perfectly.
An English parsley sauce has, in many ways, become a forgotten delicacy. It's excellent served with boiled gammon or any baked fish or, as shown here, it's supremely good served as a partner to fresh salmon.
Okay, so you don't get the buttery flavour, but you do get a lovely, creamy-smooth, milky white sauce which is most helpful for those needing to cut the fat content of their diet.
