Default What is "English" food?

What did we bring to the world's buffet table? I know Americans love to moan about "british food", but what exactly is it? Most of what we have over here now was given to us by foreigners.

Some English food is underrated. English cheeses are lovely - Stilton, Wensleydale, Cheshire, etc. Yorkshire pudding is great. Lancashire Hotpot, made properly, can be very good too, as can Shepherd's Pie.

There are surely other things.

Britain and England have a rich vein of foods- we are a blessed country in so far that we have had an abundance of ingredients. British food is viewed as stodgy because things like meats and root vegetables have been a mainstay of our diet. If you took into consideration all the seasonal produce we have then gave everything a French or Italian sounding name then we wouldn't have this bad reputation.

The food from places like Germany and America can hardly be considered as some sort of culinary excellence
