Before my current job in IT, I used to be a chef. I was classically trained french however, one of my instructors was actually a brit. He was missing a few fingers, had a rather solid temper, and absolutely hated whistling while you chopped. I was told he cooked for the Queen at some point in his career. Seeing as how he was an instructor at the school I never questioned the veracity of that. That being said, I like to cook new things now and then and I'm always on the lookout for authentic recipes. I've read about 50 million articles on "How to cook a proper yorkshire pudding" but have yet to try one. Most seem to favor having the pan very hot before pouring. Anyway, what's your favorite recipe that you consider authentic and culturally represents you? Also, as an aside. I find that scotland and nova scotia have a boatload of similarities between the stuff they will eat/cook/pick up . Head Cheese and Haggis come to mind.
