British Cuisine Vacation Packages


When people think of British cuisine, they think of staples such as fish and chips, bangers and mash, and the Sunday roast (roast beef, potatoes, vegetables and Yorkshire pudding). Not only do England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland have their own traditional dishes, the dishes of the Commonwealth nations have found their way to the UK as well. Today, it is considered just as quintessentially British to go to an Indian restaurant as it is to go to "the chippy". Britain's culinary scene has grown exponentially in the past few decades; nearly 200 restaurants across the country have been Michelin-starred, and many chefs have become celebrities.
