Travel Food Blog: England

After days of no access to blogger, twitter and facebook, I am finally back! Before I came to settle in China about a week ago, I was in England to visit my in-laws. As you may know, I have been baking scrumptious treats while I was there, but aside from baking, I was also enjoying good old British food.

So what is British food? More specifically, what does the English cuisine have to offer to the food industry? Well, I went for the cliché... Chips, pies and everything fried!
Fishcakes with Chips and a Tub of Gravy
Doner Burger and Chips
Classic Fish and Chips
Steak Pie and Chips with Sausage and Curry Sauce
All food from the above photos were take-aways from the good old CHIPPY!
Steak Pie... yum!
More pies...
Steak and Kidney Pie
Shepherd's Pie
Cornish Pasty
Sausage Rolls and Pasties
Sausage Roll
One of my favourite processed food - Fish Fingers!
Semi-full English Breakfast aka Fry-up (when eaten during dinner time)

It was really difficult for me to stay healthy while I was in England. I did pretty well the first three days, but the junky goodness widely available eventually took over the best in me!

So to compensate my full-fat diet...
Crumpets with Fresh Blackberries
Sunday Roast - Roasted Lamb's Heart served with Roasted Potatoes, Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, Parsnips, Mashed Carrots and Swede, Yorkshire Pudding and Gravy (not in photo)
A popular Liverpool stew - Scouse
Fennel, which I turned into a simple orange and fennel salad
Venison with Gravy, Pickled Onions and Beetroots
Passion Fruit
For some sweet treats - Fudge
Last but not the least, I wouldn't have left England without a nice Champagne afternoon tea. My cake stand was a scrumptious spread of ham and cheese sandwich, chocolate eclair, chocolate cake, vanilla slice and a scone served with strawberry jam and clotted cream.

That's all for my great British feast!

Bisou bisou,
