Tbh Lin & Cajun I'd do the same, perhaps with less of the icecream Often with the difference in each of those three "toppings" they are a nice blend together... Didn't have to be a huge serving of each
She didn't mind - she always liked his honesty & the fact that she could then do the same without feeling guilty & having to "keep up appearances" (a very English preoccupation)

Quoted from Spring
British cuisine has been described as "unfussy dishes made with quality local ingredients, matched with simple sauces to accentuate flavour, rather than disguise it."
They love sauces, for sure. And custards.....boiled, that is. We had a friend from over there, and everyone was learning how to make that "perfect" boiled custard they loved so much! I decided I liked it pretty well myself! Now, Americans, in general, they just pile on ice cream!! Who wants boiled custard when you have ice cream!


I've never heard of that description of British food before in my entire life. Welsh farmhouse food YES - but not British. "Stodgy" is the keyword.

Quoted from san j
Do you like it?
Have you any cool recipes for your type?
Have you adapted any traditional British dishes for BTD or GTD?


Yes, I adapt them; many Brits are "A's". And I will continue to adapt them for my true love, who is a B-type over in Britain. It's all about the preparation and presentation; not about worcestershire sauce and Byrd's custard and
"mushy peas." Everyone can live without worcestershire sauce; lots of things can be made custard-y, and all you need for peas or beans for "mash" is a blender.

Let's face it: Brits like "baby food consistency" of foods because they drink so much at the pub that they don't want to chew anything afterwards......(Irish are different, however). Use mashed cauliflower instead of potatoes on top of the shepherd's pie, find compliant flours, etc etc

I just discovered a great alternative for mashed potatoes I cook yellow split peas with plenty of water, till they have soaked it up & are really mushy, (by which stage they are no longer yellow, incidentally) then add butter... They resemble as close to the taste & consistency of good old mash as I have found - much more than anything else I have ever used - including mashed cauliflower Not sure they  reheat that well, but great to serve as is & make a terrific base for "cream of..." soups

Possums idea sounds good though I have not tried it out yet. I think you may be able to get to whipped cream by simply adding oil and doing it up in a blender of some sort.

As far as I know the basic difference between milk and cream is the fat content. Might have to add a little sugar for a more 'genuine' result. Anyone who could pull this off will become a culture hero.

Maybe you have missed something then! I didn't notice "stodgy" as being in the description!

Maybe it has more to do with their self-described bad teeth  - false teeth don't quite "cut" it sometimes!!! Just teasing, of course. On the other hand, maybe their taste buds simply haven't been over-worked wading through screaming spices and such! I know that I just love their boiled custard! One friend said their mother used to start cooking lunch right after breakfast. He thought that was great! What? I want my food either raw or cooked and plopped right onto my plate immediately - steaming hot!
