You may well have already guessed at least one of the food’s I’ve been devouring this week from the title of this post. It’s a bit of a giveaway really! It’s actually been a whole week of traditional English Fayre, not just pies but fish and chips and afternoon tea too. Well what can I say? I’ve simply been sampling what our country does best! I’ve also been lucky enough to enjoy a fine dining experience at the restaurant of a well known chef in Norwich where the menu featured a feast of local produce prepared with a modern twist. Here are some of my highlights…
There was a huge selection of eateries to choose from in Norwich, from stylish bistros to friendly gastro pubs. I would have worked up quite an appetite just trying to decide where to go! Thankfully the difficult decision was made for me as I was whisked off to Roger Hickman’s Restaurant by my host for the day, Mel from Visit Norwich. Although the restaurant is renowned for fine dining, it has a really relaxed and friendly atmosphere and the lunch time menu offers great value for menu, just £22 for three courses. I was even welcomed with a delicious amuse bouche to waken the taste buds ready for my three courses of foodie heaven!
And after that onslaught of culinary finery, back to basics with a delicious classic – not straight after you understand. Tastes better by the sea.
Homemade meals on wheels.
Look at this! Tea, scones, cakes, finger sandwiches! It does not get any more scrumptiously English.
We certainly know how to eat in England don’t we? Each week seems to be yummier than the last! Although I have to say, it will be great to get have a home cooked Sunday lunch with great big Yorkshire puds when I return from my travels! What’s your favourite English meal?
