What is British Food Fortnight?

What is British Food Fortnight? The annual event British Food Fortnight has been running since 2000, and was created following the Foot & Mouth crisis in 2001. The purpose behind the event was to initially act as a flagship for the various likeminded events and initiatives taking place across Britain, and 15 years later it is still going strong! Establishing itself as the biggest national celebration of British Food, British Food Fortnight is held during the autumn, running alongside our Bring Home the Harvest festival, a yearly tradition of celebrating the harvest.

So on that note and in support of British Meat, let’s take a look at the key ingredient to some of our Great British Classics!


Sausages seem to be a firm favourite in British comfort food, particularly these top sausage classics; Toad in the hole, Bangers and Mash, a traditional Full English breakfast! Easy to make and so delicious!

A proper Sunday Roast

Nothing beats a proper Sunday Roast, whether it’s a cold winter’s day or you’re having the family over for lunch. Roast dinner is the ultimate British dish, well balanced and so versatile. Everyone has a roast in their own special way, and we are spoilt for choice with options; lamb, pork, chicken, beef. What’s your favourite roast?


Minced meat is another British staple, whether that’s a minced beef pie, or something more substantial such as cottage pie, shepherd’s pie or chilli con carne.

Speaking of pies, how can we leave out pie and mash! A timeless British classic that never fails to satisfy!

We also love a good stew with dumplings and a slow cooked, meaty casserole. Generally, British comfort food consists of a mixture of meat, potatoes, vegetables and gravy in one way or another. What is your favourite British Comfort Food?
