UK Flag with Texture

British

Though known for shepherd’s pie, fish and chips, Yorkshire pudding, the cuisine in the UK changes regionally. Each region with its own delicious and unique dishes and many of the spices associated with the dishes have historically influenced European food.

  • Traditional Mini Cornish Pasty

    Authentic Cornish Pasty

    Tuesday, 14th April 2020Tyler

    The first time I even heard of a Cornish pasty was when I went to Cornwall (not surprisingly).  I had planned to go on a camping trip with some friends near Newquay. (A town in Cornwall has been a tourist spot for more than a hundred years! Not surprising when you see those gorgeous beaches!) After days of planning, we hopped in the car and started driving. The five of us (one Scottish, one South African, one from Isle of Wight, one Irish, and myself, the American) had a grand ole time in our drive. We start driving from Crawley,…

  • Hot Cross Buns, Traditional, Simple, Delicious

    Hot Cross Buns

    Wednesday, 18th March 2020Tyler

    Hot cross buns are by far some of the most delicious and easy snacks that I make all times of year. (Though I do make them more often during Easter. After all, it is an easter treat!) I had heard about hot cross buns for a long time, ever since I was a kid. Though I’d never had a chance to see them until I moved to England. Until then, I had thought that they were just part of that beloved nursery rhyme: Hot cross buns! Hot cross buns! One a penny, two a penny, Hot cross buns! If you have…

  • Toad In The Hole - Delicious and Wonderful

    Toad In The Hole

    Tuesday, 3rd March 2020Tyler

    Toad in the hole is my favorite way to use Yorkshire Pudding batter. It’s easy, delicious, and all in all pretty cheap to make (which is always a big bonus :). This may come as a surprise, but I have never actually had a non-vegetarian version… That being said I’ve had a few incredible vegetarian sausages with this dish. Namely, the Quorn sausages, and Beyond Meat’s Italian Sausages if you are in the UK or the USA respectively. (I’m actually not sure if you can get Quorn in the USA nor if you can find Beyond Meat in the UK…) I love this…

  • Deliciously Easy Yorkshire Pudding Recipe

    Yorkshire Pudding

    Sunday, 10th November 2019Tyler

    Yorkshire pudding, from an American’s first perspective, is one of the craziest and strangest ways to make a German pancake. (Though, now I would say that Yorkshire pudding is more of a popover than a German pancake albeit that the differences are minimal.) When I first moved to England, I was rather reticent to try it. I mean, growing up eating Germain pancakes made me wonder at how it might taste when savory rather than sweet. I avoided it at every opportunity until I had my first roast dinner there. (And of course, you can’t possibly have a good roast…

    Authentic Chicken Tikka Masala

    Monday, 5th November 2018Tyler

    Hey everyone! I feel like it’s been a while since I last posted, but don’t worry I’m still here!!!! 😃😃😃😃 I’ve had a crazy couple of months. Since my last post, I got a job, had been accepted to grad school at the University of Sussex, worked like a maniac, and like any upstanding man in my family I made a ton of delicious food and hit up the gym.  I’m now living in Brighton, UK 🇬🇧 and am attending Uni again. I spent the last week trying to decide what to share, and I finally reached a conclusion. If…

For instance, for this, you have two steps: Step 1: Gather these…

  • Non-Alcoholic Homemade Apple Cider

    Non-Alcoholic Homemade Apple Cider

    Sunday, 14th January 2018Tyler

    I’m still reeling (I don’t think that is the right word), ummm… let’s say excited instead, about Christmas, the New Year, and the cold. It seems that I still have all this running through my mind right now. I loved the English Wassail recipe I posted a few weeks ago. I guess I’m still thinking about those traditional rustic winter drinks. And you know, I had the thought “what if I didn’t want to buy my apple cider for the wassail? What would I do?” Well, if you asked yourself that question then our thoughts are pretty much aligned. Just…

  • English Wassail - Final 2

    English Wassail

    Tuesday, 2nd January 2018Tyler

    English wassail is by far one of my favorite holiday drinks. It’s kinda crazy because if you consider exactly how many different types of beverages there are out there, you’ll find there are, well, a lot! Each holiday season I primarily think of two drinks wassail and eggnog. From Thanksgiving to Christmas Eve, and from Christmas Day to New Year’s Eve/Day, I honestly prefer to have a cup of wassail to eggnog. (But hey, that’s just me!) Today I wanted to tell you exactly how to make this delicious drink (wassail in case I confused you in the last few…

  • Gingerbread Biscuit - Step 6 - Decorate

    Syrup-free Gingerbread Biscuit

    Sunday, 24th December 2017Tyler

    Merry Christmas!! ‘Tis the season for gingerbread biscuits!! At the beginning of the month, I took out my Christmas decorations and began thinking about what dishes I’d like to make this December. Italian panettone, English wassail, and gingerbread biscuits decorated with royal icing immediately came to mind. I decided to start with gingerbread. They sound delicious. But here’s the catch, in the UK gingerbread you use golden syrup, and I didn’t have any. In the United States, you make it with molasses instead of the syrup. I don’t usually carry golden syrup or molasses in my house. And I so, I thought… How…
