Celebration of English heritage

Today is Primrose Day an occasion I blogged about in 2009.

This week we also celebrate the Queen's birthday, on Thursday, and St George's Day on Saturday.

Celebrate English heritage with Aylesbury (Buckinghamshire) Duck, Cornish Pasty, Cumberland Sausage, Devon Clotted Cream, Double Gloucester Cheese, Lancashire Hotpot, Red Leicester Cheese, Lincolnshire Sausage, Newcastle (Northumberland) Brown Ale, Norfolk Dumpling, Somerset Cider,
Sussex Pond Pudding,Wiltshire Ham, Worcestershire sauce.

Doesn't look like a very balanced meal. No veggies! Additions gladly accepted. And yes, some of the places are not now in the old counties.

Bakewell (Derbyshire) Tart, Bedfordshire Clanger, Cheddar (Somerset) Cheese, Jersey Potatoes (Channel Islands), Melton Mowbray (Leicestershire) Pie, Scouse (Liverpool, Lancashire), Yorkshire Pudding.

For vegetables, with the exception of the humble potato, one has to turn to varieties rather than dishes:
Altrincham (Carrot), Bedfordshire Champion (Onion), Bedfordshire Fillbasket (Brussel Sprout)etc and of course there are a huge variety of apple cultivars including Beauty of Bath (Somerset)...

Bon apetit!
