English Recipes and British Food Recipes
English food recipes have always been distinguished by both simplicity and sophistication. The variety of English recipes is largely due to the history of England in particular, and Great Britain in general. Many people, looking for English recipes, forget that in reality English recipes may not be entirely English – but relate to Irish, Scottish or Wales cuisine, in fact they are British recipes. But in common parlance, it was customary to call all British dishes English recipes, and this tradition is very difficult to overcome, although no Scot would agree that the Scottish egg recipe is an English recipe, and any Irishman will be deeply outraged by the British attempt to appropriate the recipe for Irish soda bread or the same Irish coffee. Therefore, it is more correct to call English recipes British, and national cuisine British cuisine, or indicate exactly which country of the United Kingdom this or that recipe belongs to.

English Cuisine as a Collection of National Cuisines of the World
English cuisine is somewhat different from many national cuisines in the world. For most peoples, traditional recipes for national cuisines mainly depended on the availability of food and restrictions imposed by religious beliefs. But Great Britain, located on the island, on the one hand, had no borders with any neighbors, and there was a mutual penetration of recipes for Scottish, Irish, Welsh and English cuisine, and on the other hand, at a certain stage of its development, Great Britain colonized many countries and gained access to products and spices from all over the world, which significantly influenced English cuisine. And no one is surprised now that the traditional English drink is tea from China and India, and dishes such as chicken curry and other recipes of clearly extraneous origin are perceived as native English recipes.
