I'm Amanda and I started Great British Recipes in 2021 as a companion site to my French recipe site Chez Le Rêve Français , which has been running since 2014.
This site is completely different! Now I'm back in the UK, in my adoptive county of Lincolnshire and its abundance of fresh vegetables, great local meat and fish. I've rediscovered my love for British food, so on this site you will find classic recipes, traditional dishes from around the British isles, modern dishes and those unusual recipes that are so good, but are at risk of being forgotten.
I was the only child in our family and I grew up accompanying my dad shooting and fishing. In fact my dad did all the cooking and encouraged me from a young age to experiment, particularly with frugal food. I prefer to cook from scratch, whenever possible, but know how hard that can be so I like to cheat occasionally.
Every recipe I make on this site will be from the whole range of foods with no dietary influence. However, if something is naturally gluten free or vegetarian I will point it out.
I hope that you enjoy these recipes and please feel free to leave a comment or a question.
And, if you like what you see, take a ,moment to subscribe to the newsletter so that you can keep up to date with new recipes.
