Travel in England and Experience the Taste of Real England Food

Posted 02-08-2013 in Articles by Christopher

To most travellers, one of the greatest and most satisfying ways to get to know a place or culture is to eat like a local. English cuisine is often labeled as tasteless, simple, or reduced to merely fish and chips and tea. Contrary to that unwarranted stereotype, England food is hearty and filling with traditional meals consisting of bread and cheese, roasted and stewed meats, meat and game pies, boiled veggies and brothes, freshwater and saltwater fish. With unique attributes of its own, England food also shares characteristics of a wider British cuisine. As a result of post-war immigration during the time of the British Empire, English food today incorporates ingredients and ideas from places like North America, China, and India. While it may not have the same reputation as French or Italian cuisine, don't write off England food just yet!
