It has distinctive attributes and recipes of it’s own, but shares with much wider British and European cuisine as a result of local and foreign influences. Scotland’s natural larder of game, dairy products, fish, fruit, and vegetables are the chief factor in traditional Scots cooking, with a high reliance on simplicity.

Ireland has a rich history of hearty and filling foods. With an abundance of land dedicated to sheep, cows and crops, as well as it’s simple coastline for fishing, Ireland has plentiful resources for fresh and local ingredients.
