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!
Vegetarians and meat-eaters alike will love this really thick soup crammed with beans, rice and a host of wintry veg. All you need is some good bread and cheese to go with it…
A bit like a British version of tortilla, this filling omelette is made with potatoes and bacon as well as eggs, offering a nutritious option for a cheap lunch or supper.
These are essentially pork meatballs, baked in the oven. Another cheap and easy supper dish, they are given a tasty twist with the addition of apple sauce, the perfect accompaniment to any pork dish.
This is just the sort of thing that you hope will be served after a convivial Sunday roast, complete with home-made custard, or cream, of course!
Make the most of summer beans and other vegetables in this gorgeous vegetarian recipe which can be eaten on its own or as an accompaniment. And if the weather is less than kind, you can serve it warm instead of cold as a salad.
Split peas and bacon make this a hearty, appetising and filling soup for a winter's day. Incidentally it's so-named after the 'peasouper' fogs that embroiled London in earlier times.
Sometimes the idea of the simpler the better makes for cooking success and never more so than in this pared-down recipe for asparagus that would make the most brilliant starter or lunch dish.
Steamed asparagus is wrapped with cheese and ham to produce the most wonderful light meal or starter - a great way to enjoy the short asparagus season in May and June.
Who says cooking is difficult? This quick recipe is a great way of cooking several veggies at once - and roasting them retains all the flavour and nutritional value. Wonderful with the Sunday roast!
No cooking here - just an assembly job involving ready-made custard, trifle sponges and a few other magic ingredients. You'll end up with a trifle that will be loved by everyone!
