As a nation whose long history is shaped by settlers from overseas, our national cuisine owes plenty to ingredients and flavours imported from around the world.
Even fish and chips are said to have their roots in Portugal, and foods from Italy, India, Mexico and China frequently top the lists of Britain’s best-loved dishes.
So whether your menu boasts roast beef and Yorkshire pud or a carnival of flavours inspired by global cuisines, you can celebrate British Food Fortnight by using the best of British ingredients and produce in your dishes.
How about adding some of these international favourites to your Brit List menu to show how British food represents a culinary melting pot?
- Korean BBQ Pulled Pork: pork from pigs reared in the UK + Korean BBQ Sauce
- Mexican fajitas: chicken from British farms + Mexican Habanero Hot Sauce
- Buffalo cauliflower bites: locally-grown cauliflower + New York-inspired Medium Buffalo Sauce
- Asian Beef Stir Fry: Beef from local British farmers + Asian Ginger, Chilli and Garlic Sticky Sauce
Lion sauces are British made, globally inspired – making it easy for you to use the best of UK produce to create today’s must-have dishes.
