    Throw in Lemon Meringue pie and a Full English into that list and the Gods atop Olympus would be replete.

    Depends what is meant by traditional.

    Fish and Chips is a dish brought over by Jewish settlers from Iberian region in Spain/Portugal.

    Most traditional is probably a good old stew.

    First chippy was reputedly opened in East London by Jewish immigrant Joseph Malin around 1860. This claim is refuted by some historians claiming the first chippy was opened in top Mossley opposite the market.
     
  6. One for the pub quizzers......the method of actually cooking the fish is steaming. The batter solidifies on contact with the hot oil/fat, seals the batter and produces steam inside, hence the soft flaky texture of the cooked fish.

    It is - from recorded history, most of the population of England from 800AD until the 1800s lived off pottage.

    Pottage sounds like a sexual act, probably involving the anus in some way eg That Paige from WWE knows her pottage doesnt she.

    I would say the most quintessentially English foodstuff is rhubarb.
