What is Britain’s Best Loved Dish?

March 30, 2016

Britain’s #reputation for #food has not, it is true, always been lauded for its #sophistication and #style. Often perceived as a land of #pies and #pasties and #offal-based peculiarities, it is little wonder that the UK’s #continental #counterparts have enjoyed substantially more limelight for their #cuisines.

 

However, contrary to popular opinion, British #taste buds are not nearly as dull and dreary as they are made out to be.

 

Instead, drawing #influence from a wide range of #countries from across the #globe, the average Brit’s weekly #menu now features everything from aloo gobi to zabaglione.

 

A recent #study, conducted by #Food Network UK, has shown that people in the UK are eschewing old favourites like #shepherd’s pie and #fish and chips in preference of “less boring” international equivalents, which have now become staples on the #dinner #table on average three nights a week.

 

Topping the #poll, and overtaking previous frontrunner #chicken #tikka masala in the process, is the #Chinese stir fry. The simple dish, typically full of #noodles, fresh #vegetables and #meat or #fish, is now the most frequently cooked dish in the United Kingdom.

 

As #Nick #Thorogood, Managing Director of Food Network EMEA, stated, “It is considered normal to be swapping a #Cottage Pie for a #Thai Green Curry... It shows that what were once considered #exotic #dishes are now considered everyday #cuisine and we are becoming masters of the wok.”
