The best British cooking is home cooking. A lot of the dishes have been mentioned - roast beef with Yorkshire pudding and roast potatoes, trifle etc. Lord - my dear old mum's cooking, God rest her soul!
I like to cook too. I make my own bread, cakes and marmalade. Come January, Seville oranges are ready and I get going. Oranges, sugar and water - that's all that's in it. No E numbers. On toast - oh boy!

Don't know about okra, but animal feed is what turnips are good for. Don't know if anybody uses them for that anymore, though, they use more hand labor than corn, hay and silage.

I'm with Stu on the pinto beans, though. I would add cornbread to the beans and taters, though.

As a matter of interest Forty Rod, which British food has a bad rep?

I was born in Scotland and migrated to Nottinghamshire as a kid and reckon I have eaten in just about every county at one time or another. A lot of resteraunts over here churned out some pretty standard fodder through the 60' and 70's but I think it improved until the advent of the Microwave oven, things went downhill in a lot of the 'chain pubs'.

Local home cooked is the best as far as I am concerned, I describe my wife as a good plain cook, none of those fancy sauces that the french use to disguise crap food in our house! Beef is cooked until it don't bleed any more, no raw meat for me!

Proper rolled oats make the best porridge, steeped in water overnight before cooking, is best, and as for haggis,,,I love it!

I thought that was a given.

freshly prepared Haggis absolutely.   I had some canned stuff and the dog wouldn't even eat it.

Well (and this is my opinion.  I won't drag anyone else into it.) most puddings, anything boiled, and beef except pot roast.

How about a good steak n kidney pie? My mother made one to die for. Condiments...how about pickled walnuts with your roast beef and yorkshire pudding.

Cheers!

A wise person once said ...
There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it.
You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good.
So love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't.
Life is too short to be anything but happy.
Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living. Cheers!

My mother in law made steak and kidney pie for Christmas dinner and it was amazing.  The dark, rich gravy lingered on your palate and was so rich and smooth.
