British Love Food Fortnight

British Food Fortnight is the biggest annual, national celebration of British food and drink. Since originating in 2002, it has become a fantastic opportunity for those who work in catering, to come together and celebrate the benefits of buying and eating from our home produced British larder.

Why not pick and grow your own British food and then cook them up in a delicious dish for your customers? Here at Essential Cuisine we are all about British Seasonality where food is concerned and we love inspiring ingredients that make you think outside the box when buying your meat and veg.

For example, this autumn have you considered figs as a tasty seasonal ingredient? A truly delicious, succulent fruit. Delicious when baked with goats cheese and drizzled with honey to finish. Figs, with their naturally high sugar content, pair especially well with rich gamey flavours and salty cured meats, such as Cornish Black Olive Salami.

Every year businesses and organisations across the UK take part in British Food Fortnight – all enjoying the commercial benefits that participation brings. The public sector supports the event too with major hospitals and school catering services being involved.

Join us and get involved over the next two weeks enjoying home-grown home-cooked tasty seasonal British food.
