​British food icons

We just finished up our series about taking American classics and putting a local twist on them.

Now, we can go back to the other half of my original pub food menu ideas: the iconic British dishes. I really love food from back home, and I never knew how much I would miss it living here in the States.

So, here they are! The top five most iconic British foods, according to Mumma Alsum are:

​5 Coming in at number five is a ploughman’s lunch, which typically consists of at least bread, cheese and a brown relish called pickle.

​4 Ask any American which dish they think of first when you say “British food”, and they will tell you… Fish and chips.

​3Now, the next dish would be better considered as a category of food. Meat pies are really delicious, and my most favorite of meat pies would be the pasty.

​2 Number two brings us Full English Breakfast. I know this is supposed to be “British” rather than “English”, but you will definitely get to see what I can do to make a Pacific Northwest Full British Breakfast.

​1 And the best and most iconic British food in my humble opinion is definitely Sunday Roast. There is a serious nostalgia that Brits hold when it comes to a good roast dinner.

So, stay tuned and keep your eyes peeled as we work our way through, beginning with the Ploughman’s lunch.

From mine to yours,

Mumma Alsum
