Families in Britain have tucked into more roast dinners over this summer than the same period last year according to Kantar Worldpanel. The statistics show that sales in beef and other popular roast dinner meats are up by 50%. Amazing considering all the glorious hot weather we have had!
Of course, it is likely to be the Coronavirus pandemic which has affected the sudden increase in families cooking roast dinners over the last few months. More people have been self-isolating and spending longer periods of time at home. So it’s likely they had more time to cook food for their family. Cooking a roast dinner is an ideal nutritional meal, which also tastes amazing.
One of the great things about roast dinners is that you can have so many combinations that can be classified as a roast dinner. However, you might very well have a very specific idea of what forms the perfect roast dinner for you.
There are plenty of vegetables that work well as part of a roast. It could be carrots, swede, turnips, parsnips, or broccoli. You might also be inclined to having a few Brussel sprouts on your plate to make the perfect roast dinner.
It’s clear though that the cornerstone of any roast is the meat you choose, and everyone has a clear favourite. Whether you enjoy roast pork, beef, lamb, turkey, or chicken; you can pair it with your favourite vegetables to create a great roast dinner for you and your family.
And then there are all the extras; stuffing (which flavour do you love?), Yorkshire puddings, bread pudding, suet pudding, condiments…these all go towards making your own roast special to you!
