  1. Despite many who believe that English food is bland and without merit, I happen to LOVE the simplicity and richness of English cuisine.

    A Sunday roast with Yorkshire puddings, minted peas, and roasted potatoes are a real comfort food staple.

    The Beef Pasties in this article are fabulous and I have experimented myself with a similar recipe and it is absolute bliss on a cold and overcast Winter’s day.
