Helen's British Cooking


Review by Debbie Mazo


Helen's British Cooking  
British cooking is no longer just about Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding. Incorporating traditions from all countries of the world, British cookery now ranks with the best when it comes to culinary excellence. For a taste of England, take a virtual trip across the Atlantic to Helen's British Cooking site.

Hosted by Helen Watson, a consultant food technologist with extensive experience in the British food industry, this simply designed site comes with a cookbook well-stocked with favorites that any Anglophile would love. All the recipes give measurements in both Imperial and Metric systems along with a Conversions link to help you calculate measurements. If you're not familiar with some of the terms in this cookbook, you can always check out the Glossary complete with pop-up descriptions.

Ready to plan a meal featuring specialties of the British Isles? Then, start off with one of the featured appetizers such as Country Mushrooms or Herrings in Oatmeal. Follow with an Endive, Orange, and Hazelnut Salad or a simple Winter Salad. For your main course, try an English standard such as Beef Wellington or Steak and Kidney Pie. Finally, to top off your meal, serve a Tapioca Pudding or Compote of Fruit with Elderflower Cream.

To keep up-to-date on British food trends, browse the Internet Magazine of British Cooking. A regular feature of the site, this magazine includes everything from regional articles highlighting British food in different parts of the country to seasonal articles describing British food traditions when celebrating holidays such as Easter, Christmas, and New Year's.

Although some of the links are still under construction, Helen's British Cooking still has plenty to offer when it comes to enjoying the British cooking experience.
