Food history of the United Kingdom

British food today is a blend of everything from early history to modern fusion food in London.

The Saxons brought with them techniques for cultivating food, with the Norrmans came wine and typical words for food such as mutton instead of lamb and beef from boeuf.

With trade came spices from all over the world and the custom of drinking tea, as well as Indian dishes such curry, that have almost become as British as steak and kidney pie or Yorkshire pudding.

As a foodie with an interest in art and fashion, I’m constantly on the hunt for the best food and drink spots, art museums and the ultimate shopping destinations. When looking for inspiration, I always trust recommendations from friends above all. With Nova Circle it’s now a breeze to find new places that are in tune with what I like, from those I trust.

Afternoon tea

Afternoon tea is a very typical British concept. It usually consists of sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and jam, cakes and pastries, preferably fresh from the bakery.

All of it is of course served with tea, or a glass of champagne if you like. There are quite a bit of rituals and rules to afternoon tea, if you wish to do it the correct and traditional way, from how to use your napkin to when to put sugar in your tea.

Taste buds for fine dining?

If you're into fine dining, there are many restaurants to choose from. Gordon Ramsay is one of the British chefs who has been awarded with most Michelin stars. The Fat Duck is one of many exclusive restaurants, with famous chef Heston Blumenthal.

Another fine dining establishment is Lyle's in Shoreditch, East London, that serves dishes with somewhat unusual ingredients and combinations. Make sure you make reservations a long time in advance.

Street food

The best food you will ever eat is perhaps not in a Michelin star restaurant but street food. And there is lots of it all over the United Kingdom. There is even a street food festival with live music, where the best street food is awarded. Local, seasonal, affordable and fresh are characteristics that may get traders top listed. Buy yourself a drink, grab your food and enjoy the atmosphere.

The most well-known British street food is probably fish and chips. Cornish pasty is another typical street food, a golden crispy pastry filled with beef and various vegetables. Pork pies have been around since the 1300s.

Pie and mash is a traditional working-class dish. It is a pie with minced meat filling, mashed potatoes and parsley sauce.
Jellied eels are perhaps not for the faint hearted. It consists of chopped eels that are cooked and then cooled, whereby a jelly is formed.
Among British traditional food you can also find international influences, such as tacos, burritos, poké bowl, barbeque and dumplings.
