[@]English Cuisine Restaurants
British cuisine is not really celebrated around the world, which is no doubt partly due to the perceived prevalence of Fish and Chip shops or the Sunday Roast, leading the French to call the British ‘Le Boeuf’.
This view is of course somewhat inaccurate. Britain has a world class reputation for breeding deer for Venison and veal. Its southern wineries produce sparkling wines matching those from the French Champagne region (this is largely because the soil and conditions are basically the same).
Lancashire, just across the border, is where some of the best meat and vegetables are farmed. The BBC’s Food and Farming Awards celebrate the best producers and tradesmen. It is worth looking at the award winners as the 2014 the Best Local Food Retailer was Edge & Son Butcher from the Wirral, in Merseyside.
Manchester is in an ideal location to take advantage of the fare from the land and sea and many of its best restaurants source their food locally. You can find much of this fare being sold in the local markets, check out the Manchester Markets, Saturdays, in Piccadilly Gardens.
This list of Manchester Restaurants will give you a flavour of what can be achieved and how good food and drink really can taste.
