No. 12: Ampersand Foods


Image credit: Markify

“The British Isles can boast some world-beating recipes, and some of the best of them are made with a secret ingredient they have always been very fond of: the Ampersand. It’s there in some of their best-known dishes: not just fish & chips — the full title of which should really be fish & chips & mushy peas — but also firm favorites like bangers & mash (sausages and mashed potato and gravy), pie & mash (eel pie, mashed potato, and a parsley-based sauce called liquor), and the ever-popular steak & kidney pie. And it’s particularly prevalent in some of their most beloved food brands too.”
