The British One Hundred

I’ve been back in work for just over a week now and I’m exhausted, so food has been just good old tried and tested recipes, and not really blogable. The above photo was taken on our honeymoon last year on the Isle of Harris when we were chilling out with a scarily big jug of Pimms. Remember the days where you could sit outside in the hot sunshine in the UK for most of the summer and not have to dodge torrential rain…

To make up for the slight blogging drought and the fact British Food Fortnight is just around the corner, here is The British One Hundred as put together by Helen at Food Stories. Along the same idea as the Omnivore’s Hundred, but I can tick a great deal more off the list!
