Love Lincolnshire food, too
By Angela Stewart, of Lincolnshire Co-op Foodstores
RECENTLY we celebrated British Food Fortnight and as well as celebrating good old British food, we celebrated Lincolnshire.
The Co-op encouraged people to eat local and try Great British dishes with a Lincolnshire twist and we shouldn't stop now.
Fish and chips is seen by many as a quintessentially British meal. Using Lincolnshire potatoes and Grimsby fish are obvious ways of making it local.

You can also adapt it further – for the batter try one of Bateman's ales produced at the brewery in Wainfleet.
And if you fancy putting a twist on the old classic why not swap normal haddock or cod for Chapman's fishcakes?
At Chapman's Seafoods in Grimsby, brothers Kevin and Paul's fishcakes are handmade to their mother's recipe using only the finest Grimsby fish from three local merchants.
What could be more British than a Sunday dinner? We stock meat, including cuts of beef and pork perfect for a roast, sourced through the Lincolnshire Quality Beef, Lamb and Pork scheme. Watch out for the Hungry Stockman rosette logo and you'll be sure that the meat you're buying was raised on a county farm.
In Lincolnshire, you can't talk about local produce without mentioning the great Lincolnshire sausage. Make bangers and mash even more Yellowbelly by using a cheese like Lincolnshire Poacher made at Ulceby Grange Farm near Alford, it'll give some extra 'oomph' to the mash.
Keep it local by adding on a serving of peas too – all of our own-brand frozen peas are grown in the Louth area.
If you're heading out on a picnic you could make an English style quiche with vegetables and Cote-hill cheese made in Osgodby, near Market Rasen. Finally, no picnic would be complete without delving into a bag of finest quality Piper's Crisps. Grown and made in Elsham, North Lincolnshire, Pipers boast an array of flavours, each more addictive than the last.
