Did you search the forums for a thread? There is an ongoing thread in the Lounge about British foods and there are many recipes included. You might want to check it out.

A Food thread

A google search gave me a British recipe from BBC for your chicken and mushroom pie:

Look at youtube/ french cooking academy/ chicken and mushroom pie. They are gorgeous. I also added some of my home made bread sauce.
For mushy peas as from a chippy you need dried marrowfat peas which could be a problem to find.
Yorkshires are easy, google award winning yorkshire pudding.

We used to have a specific recipe thread with hundreds of recipes collated in it, but I can't seem to find it.

I looked for it also and didn't find it. Thought it was in the Lounge and could only find the only I linked on my original post.

Can't you create British food by taking anyone else's recipe and doubling the boil time?

Actually, mindful that there were already recipe threads I intended that as a more general food thread, although recipes were not meant to be excluded, how best to cook things, what goes well together, alternatives, maybe short cuts etc

To be fair to the OP he seems to want basic British food favourites. It can't be much fun ploughing through coq-au-vin, Crème Brulée à l'Orange, Lasagne, Moussaka and so on, looking for Chicken and Mushroom Pie, Fish and Chips.

I think we all have that hankering for something British that either we can't get here or is just not quite the same.

Buy an Actifry. Makes great roast potatoes and very good chips. For fish, this is a good starter.



Easy to mix and doesn't need deep frying. I've made the best battered fish (or sausage) I've had in almost two decades.

Plz post recipes, ingredients for the following foods:
Chick n Mushroom pies
Mushy Peas
<snip>
Yorks Pudding


Yorkshire pudding - look for the Club House mix (they sell it in most grocery stores - and in Walmart).. or follow Delia's recipe https://www.deliaonline.com/recipes/...-pudding-for-6 - keep in mind that sea level of where you are located can make a difference

Marrowfat peas (mush peas) are available in tins (batchelors) at various stores, including bulkbarn - they also sometimes sell them dried

Parsley sauce is easy - make a basic white sauce with butter, flour and milk (or milk water combination) either on the stove or make it in the microwave (nice and quick) , put all the ingrediants in a bowl, whisk every 30 seconds cook until bubbling and thick... then add chopped parsley and season to taste. You can make cheese sauce the same way, using a nice strong cheddar cheese, grated, instead of parsley. If you fancy cod in parsley butter sauce Walmart sell one. https://www.deliaonline.com/recipes/...-parsley-sauce

when making savoury pies, condensed soup makes a good 'sauce' and pre-made pie crusts make life a lot easier Quick and dirty chicken and mushroom pie -= 2 pie crusts, thawed... cook chicken breasts, slice mushrooms... mid together with a can of condensed cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup (add peas / carrots if required) - bung it in one of the pie crusts - put the other one on top.. bake

Just don't believe any poncey recipes for mushy peas that use frozen peas. You can buy Batchelor's dried.marrowfat peas in a few places but British stores will have them. I've also bought some in Walmart and they sell canned mushy peas too in their International section.
Nigella's Yorkshire recipe is nearest to my mum's and therefore the best.
Anything else just look up Delia's recipes.
