As it’s been a significant week in our great nation, we thought we’d celebrate the 2015 Election by looking at the best of British food. At the Ramsbottom Kitchen Company, we’ve put together ten things we love about British food; from scrumptious local delights to trusted family favourites, we are covering it all to make you want to get in the kitchen and cook up a storm!

Fish and Chips

This quintessential British food is the ultimate comfort food and a real taste of Britain. It doesn’t get better than light, crispy battered fish and some big fat chips on the side!

Sunday Lunch Roast Dinner

Meat, vegetables, stuffing and maybe even a Yorkshire pudding, all topped off with tasty gravy! The Sunday roast is an integral meal in most British families and a great way to bring everyone together. With a good oven, it’s easy to do too!

Great British Bake Off

This programme has taken the nation by storm, whether you’re a baking enthusiast or not. The competitive edge and real emotion has people gripped and has no doubt inspired many give their kitchen a makeover and get baking.

Wimbledon Cream Teas

With Wimbledon just around the corner, everyone is getting ready to feast on cream teas, cakes and pies whilst cheering on our finest British talent.


What’s a British Summer without a barbeque? We Brits love to fire up the BBQ and cook up some tasty meats and while away an afternoon. Come rain or shine, we will always find a way to light the BBQ in summer!

Lancashire Hotpot

This local dish has become a national favourite and is the perfect meal to warm you up on a cold winter’s day.

Eccles Cake & Chorley Cake

These tasty northern delights offer the best of both Chorley and Eccles. With the Eccles cake donning a sugared top, it’s the sweeter of the two, but either one is a tasty treat with a cup of tea.

George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces

Watching people convert unique spaces into homes is always good viewing, and no doubt it has inspired many to take on their own kitchen improvements too.

Cornish pasty

For the best Cornish pasty, you still need to head to the south-west. The perfect combination of pastry with meat, potato, onions and lots of seasoning is just divine.

Master Chef

This cooking programme is brilliant. It’s the perfect blend of cooking and competition that has people gripped and making kitchen improvements in their own homes, so they can better hone their cooking skills.
