Hello and welcome to our blog here at Global Foods & Provisions Ltd, based in Knutsford, Cheshire in the UK. Today we want to talk about the sea change in attitude over the last 10 to 20 years here in the UK. We have suddenly become a nation of foodies that like to talk about food, create great dishes and eat delicious, nutritious food. Now we are not saying that the whole nation is tuned into this but quite a proportion of us certainly are and it is very exciting and impressive to see.
Enjoying Foods From Across The World
The UK has not historically been known as a global hotbed for great cuisine but that has now changed and the people of the UK like to revel in the fact that we have a multicultural society that enjoys foods from right across the world including Italian, French, Italian, Spanish, Mexican, Bangladeshi, Indian, Brazilian, Japanese, Chinese, Polish and all points in between. We have also reinvigorated many of our own authentic English dishes, adding a twist here and there to freshen them up.
Herbs and spices now play a huge part in our diets along with various fruits and vegetables which were previously pretty unknown in the UK, This is of course all very refreshing.
People here are now very savvy and knowledgeable when it comes to food. They like to know where their food has been sourced from, how fresh it is, the ingredients in any dish they are eating, if it has been grown and produced organically and ethically etc. And many people are following various diet regimes, either due to health issues or just choice, including the Paleo diet, a gluten free diet, a sugar free diet or a vegetarian or vegan diet etc.
And talking about food, let`s not forget drink as this is just as important. We now drink a whole range of sports drinks, nutritional drinks, smoothies and juice drinks, and as regards alcohol the market in craft ales and real ale has taken off. Gin has become trendy once more and there are gin bars opening up in most towns and cities in the UK.
We are now a nation of foodies who like to cook. The kitchen has become the focal point of the home where people cook, eat, drink and generally chew the fat after a hard days work.
