Are you bucking the food trends in Britain?
"A survey has revealed that one in four British people no longer eat meals considered traditionally British.

A quarter of people asked said traditional English food like toad in the hole was a thing of the past and one in five said they thought that sort of food was boring.

Almost half of Brits (43%) find food from other countries to be far tastier and more exciting.

One in five British families (20%) said they had stopped eating or drinking dairy, choosing nut or soya milk alternatives instead."

I eat one of those pretty regularly. Care to guess.

(What is the food in the icon?)

Makes more sense.

Thomas Gage is an interesting read about chocolate. Catholic friar, just trained in Spain supposed to go to Phillipines but hopped ship in Mexico tells stories of people addicted to chocolate, maybe himself.

Eventually came home converted to Anglicanism. Shifted with the politics and eventually was a guide on Cromwell's Western Design which failed miserable to gain any of the Spanish Main but did lead to Jamaica becoming English and providing the first regular source of sugar.

All comes round.

Shit, I think I've misrembered.

Put chocolate instead of tea in my post below.

I've probably got time-travelling Tex into a lot of trouble...

May well be true

Recency is 200 years after coffee and chocolate (only a drink then) houses began to pop up.

(You always enjoy The religious angle: coffee was considered more Protestant and chocolate Catholic initially, why some think coffee initially took hold in England.)

The transatlantic slave triangle made sugar semi affordable within the intervening years. And tea had been had been introduced mainly via the coffee houses.

Tea houses are beyond my era and I do not know much about them. My research also focused West alot.

According to Alice Roberts, low-class prostitutes were the only women who went to ale houses in Regency times, higher-class ones went to coffee houses, and only tea houses were left for respectable women.

Some valid points there.

Pies (or coffins, when they used to hold the entire animal) and sausage (though not called that) seem to be older than the English.

The potato of course was not available until the end of the 16th century and then only for the rich.

Similar with tomatoes.

Baked beans were Native first and again not available until mid-Early Modern times in England. And not available canned in current form until the early 20th.

Cauliflower cheese is in Mrs. Beeton's in the mid 19th century so probably around 20-30 years before. (Usual rule with recipes showing up in cookery books.

Not here but tea and sugar is relevantly new. Coffee was more important much earlier as the English had better access to its source, early.

Traditional from when?

Food from different times and different social groups is massively different. Depends how far you go back and what group is eating what.

Another words, complete bollocks like most things.

I have a longing for a proper steak and kidney pudding with proper suet pastry.

When this longing becomes great enough to overcome my aversion to pastry cooking, I'm going to try and emulate my long deceased Mum's achievements in this field.

I cook English dishes as well as foreign ones. If Aliens landed, I'd probably have a go at their cuisine, too.
