Fish and chips, full English breakfast and scotch eggs. All three are classic dishes that make us proud to be British. Though perhaps the most patriotic dish of all is the humble Sunday roast.Dating back to the 18th century, this traditional meal has stayed true to its origins and still consists of the same main components as it did back then.
