Ethnic Meals
Recipes and meal time ideas


The site concentrates on British recipes from Scotland, England and Wales with a few recipes from Ireland, India and France "thrown in". Primarily designed to provide ethnic recipes and meals, whether you are looking for an unusual meal, a straightforward meat, fish or poultry meal dish or even a sweet pudding recipe then hopefully you will find it here.

You can search for any recipe using a variety of ways including region, country, base ingredient or "pot luck" all from the drop down menu at the top of each page.

I would like to think that all diets and paletes are catered for. If you have a suggestion or even a recipe that you would like to submit, please don't hesitate to contact me via the contact us page.
