The GBK Cookbook
The British Food Trust
After over 10 years of providing this website as an entirely free service the Trust now hopes that small donations from our viewers will allow the site to continue beyond 2013.
The British Food Trust Website
This website is a major resource for all those in the UK and around the world who are enthusiasts for British cooking, its past traditions and future potential. Most of the 1,210 recipes here are indeed traditional and, taken together, define the legacy of British Cuisine. But of course cooking and recipes are ever-changing, no more so than with British cooking, which has always been hugely influenced by other cultures, many of which are now part and parcel of our contemporary cuisine. Our overriding interest, then, is not that everything in the Kitchen should be the pre-War idea of British, important though that foundation is, but to share and enjoy the rich diversity of the culinary life that is readily found in the British Kitchen today (wherever in the world that Kitchen may be!).
With that in mind, we would like to give a very special thank-you to Helen Gaffney, the selfless originator of this Cookbook, and to the Dairy Diary, which helped her with recipes and photographs.
