Traditionally British food employed seasonal and local produce to get the best out of simple and unfussy dishes. British cuisine has, however, increasingly absorbed the cultural influences of those that have settled in the United Kingdom as well from its imperial past and today reflects this rich and cosmopolitan mix of influences.Curried Cottage Pie
