Treat your taste buds to a taste of Britain!


BestofbritishTo help get you in the mood for our Best of Britain event, we have hand-picked some top products and recipes to ensure you really do get a taste of Britain.

We asked our home buyer Faye Westney to pick her three favourite foods from our range of top British brands, plus we get insider know-how from top chef Simon Brown on how to create two quintessentially English meals – fish and chips and the mighty Yorkshire pudding.

Hi Faye, what are your top three products and why?

Fudge set 801705I love this Make Your Own Fudge, Fudge Pie and Cookie Pack from Calico Cottage . It's the perfect 'try me' size with the very best of Calico Cottage, including a little bit of everything from their range.

Calico are renowned for making baking easy, and this range of mixes are perfect for even the most novice baker.

The kits come with a Calico recipe booklet with lots of fantastic ideas to inspire and delight! My favourite part of this kit if the chocolate fudge pie – it's the most delicious, dreamy, gooey delight of all.

Sausage and burger selection 801333British and Irish meat is amongst the best in the world and I love this delicious 24-piece Green Seasons meat hamper.

This pack contains an assortment of some of the most popular British sausages (Cumberland and pork and black pepper) and our popular steakburgers.

Green Seasons meat is sourced from farms personally selected by the Green Seasons master butcher, Pat Herlihy. All meat is outdoor-reared and everything is fully traceable to ensure the best quality and taste.


Cartmel pudding 801391Nothing finishes a meal like a good dessert and this six-piece pudding selection from Cartmel is ideal. Cartmel is the home of sticky puddings – all are handmade using 100% natural ingredients sourced from local suppliers to Cartmel Village in Cumbria. They're all perfect for home freezing too!

There's something for all tastes and the pack contains six British favourites including the Great Taste award-winning sticky toffee pudding, sticky chocolate pudding, lemon drizzle pudding and sticky toffee apple crumble.
