Condiments and Sauces
Order a curry in many Indian restaurants, and Major Grey's comes alongside it; in an English pub, a dollop might complement cheddar cheese. However it's served, this Anglo-Indian condiment is scrumptiously sweet and tangy.
This savory-sweet English-style chutney goes well with lamb roasts or braised lamb shanks.
This rich, booze-laced butter goes perfectly with Christmas pudding.
Serve big, cool dollops of this for-grown-ups-only whipped cream with warm Christmas Pudding.
"In England, serving roast lamb without mint sauce—a simple composition of fresh mint, sugar, and vinegar–is widely considered an egregious offense to taste and tradition. The Romans introduced the plant to English soil, and, as the 16th-century English botanist John Gerard pointed out, 'The smell of mint does stir up the minde and the taste to a greedy desire of meat.' " —Megan Wetherall, from "Dinner Mint"(April 2000)
Fresh horseradish is essential to this simple to make sauce.
