Y'all like talking about food a lot, but I have no idea what any of it is or what's the best. Can you direct me to your favorite things so I can at least look at pictures? Best case scenario would be recipes so I can make it in the privacy of my kitchen.

Thanks.

I'm not British, but I've always wondered what "Bangers and Mash" tastes like -- what's so special about it?

It tastes just like mashed potato and sausages. :p

To be fair, English cuisine isn't really thought of as the finest. :p

 

Crumpets

Can definitely be made although I'm not sure how great a gluten free recipe would be...They're very spongy and you slather them with butter and it all melts through the holes. Basically the best thing ever.

 

Cream tea

Scones, clotted cream, jam.

 

Sunday roast

Well, we invented some of the best curries and it's our national dish. Try a Chicken Tikka Masala.

Would that happen to be the "spotted dick" I keep laughing at? What does it taste like, berries and some kind of cake? (it looks like an odd type of cake thing).

Is it really clotted though? Or is it sort of like cottage cheese or cream cheese?

It's a really thick cream that forms a sort of crust on the very top which is the "clots" but the rest of it is smooth. Reaaaaally high fat content though. :p

Would it be like the same consistency on top as cheesecake? If so I am intrigued.. lol
It doesn't sound as bad when you use the word crusted rather than clotted. :p

I thought curry was a more south-easterly thing. Why is it the national dish? @Haliax

Clotted cream is amazeballs. We made some in our slow cooker last year, and ate it on cornbread.

I also turned some into a failed attempt at vanilla ice cream.

Clotted cream is AMAZING. And SUPER easy to make. We ate it on more than just cornbread, but I don't remember what.

I'm making some crumpets soon, but I am sure we'll be able to find them in Nashville.
Also, bread pudding is the bomb. I make it about once a month with leftover bread and whatever I feel like wanging in.
