I've been thinking about this for a while now...

Pudding & Tea - all very British, yes?

Well, I'm fully native, been here for 40+ of the finest British years and I don't ever recall having pudding & tea.:unsure:


 

So that got me thinking, what should the British food consumable actually be?

The key to undertanding is, to take the Continetal view of things.

Pudding and Tea, fits perfectly.

Is simply serves low level prejudice, i.e. Chokolate or Stronk Coffee and Crosaints.

"Something for the weekend sir?"  Is a phrase I miss greatly being uttered to me.

I thought the national food of the UK was cyanide, as you've all voted for a mass suicide. They can't even eat humble pie and sort it out.

Sad part is, you're not far from the truth.

I have always assumed it's something badly translated into Russian then back into English.  Possibly started out as tea and biscuits.

 

Maybe one of our old tankers here has a better explanation.

Cottage pie is the UK favourite but being all continental I consider a curry pie from my local bakers the height of good taste.

I always assumed it was from pease pudding, a traditional meal that made a resurgence during the war, due to rationing.

To me, nothing sounds more british than Fish&Chips.

Loved the buttered scones when I was over there and I saved the receipe for future use. Still one of my most loved sweet dough thingies. The rest of the British cuisine that I tried was rather... meh. Didn't do any research before hitting a restaurant, though.

The fish and chips I got were at the level of our fast food fish. Rather average.

But I remember a really good Beef Wellington (?) with a nice and rich filling and a nice dark gravy.
