Taste your way around the UK with these unmissable local delicacies.
Taste destination… Scotland
The not-so-secret ingredients… Sheep’s heart, liver and lungs minced with onion, oatmeal and spices.
You’ll love it… it’s a strong hearty dish (pun-intended). Our very own Scotsman Ian isn’t afraid to chow down on a bit of Haggis, it’s definitely worth a try. They even do a veggie version!
Taste destination… Wales
The not-so-secret ingredients… Lamb, leeks, potatoes, seasonal vegetables and stock
You’ll love it… it’s a cross between a broth and stew and is Wales’ national dish. This delicious dish will certainly keep you warm in the winter months.
Pie, Mash & Liquor
Taste destination… East London
The not-so-secret ingredients… Beef pie, mashed potato and liquor.
You’ll love it… it’s the product of the pie and eel farmers coming together back in the 1800’s. Despite its name the liquor isn’t alcoholic, it’s actually made with parsley. If you find yourself in a Pie Mash shop why not pick up another East End delicacy, Jellied Eels.
Taste destination… England
The not-so-secret ingredients… Strawberries, broken meringue and whipped cream.
You’ll love it… this sweet summer dessert used to be served at Eton College when the annual cricket match was on. It’s a delicious mixture of sugary sweetness that makes for one yummy delicacy.
Devon Cream Tea
Taste destination… Devon
The not-so-secret ingredients… Tea, scones, clotted cream and jam.
You’ll love it… it’s a must if you’re in Devon. Nowhere does clotted cream like the South West. To have a traditional Devon Cream Tea you have to put the clotted cream on the scone first then the jam, not the other way around otherwise you’ll be doing it the Cornish way.
