With the Queens diamond jubilee on 5th June and London hosting the Olympics at the end of July, 2012 is the year to celebrate Britain.

There is no better way to celebrate England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland than by enjoying what Britons are most proud of; British food. If you are creating a feast to celebrate these special dates with a gathering of family and friends or even a whole street party, or if you just want some simple recipes to make everyday meals delicious, British food has something to offer everyone.

Make the most of British ingredients in June and July with simple recipes featuring fresh Scottish salmon, Welsh lamb, British beef and seasonal vegetables. Now is the perfect time to reduce air miles and support the mouth-watering ingredients which we are famous for.

Whether you are looking for classic or innovative, simple recipes and recipe videos will guide you, step-by-step, to delicious meals. Dont just search for a specific recipe using a search engine; they often result in unreliable recipes which may have been written by someone with no real knowledge of food and the recipe may not even have been tested. The best way to learn how to cook the best of British dishes is by using simple recipes and recipe videos provided as a free culinary resource from an established cooking school – or better still, learning to cook them in a cooking school!

Simple recipes for desserts, starters and main courses from professional cooking school chefs will have been tried and tested hundreds of times. Their best of British recipes will have been lovingly crafted and perfected before being shared online. Contrary to popular belief, chefs want to share their passion for great British dishes and ingredients!

Try classic potted shrimp with salmon and dill butter, a fresh asparagus, pea and broad bean salad with pine nuts and pancetta (ideal for spring), or learn how to cook recipes for desserts such as lemon posset with vanilla shortbread and minted raspberries. Impress your friends and family with simple gastropub recipes such as leg of rabbit with caramelised carrots, pan seared pigeon with warm Ratte potatoes or seared rump of lamb with pickled fennel and a pearl barley and wild garlic risotto. If you are planning to entertain a large group of people this summer watch a recipe video for mini Yorkshire puddings with rare roast beef – an ideal small buffet party food for your celebration of Britain. Or, for even more simple recipes, use their website to perfect your classic cottage pie.

Whether you are looking for advanced or simple recipes, and recipes for desserts, starters, main courses or buffet bites, a London cooking school with online recipes and recipe videos will have plenty of useful resources to enable you to cook the perfect meal. There is no more delicious way to celebrate being British!
