Scottish cuisine is the specific set of cooking traditions and practices associated with Scotland. It shares much with British cuisine, buthas distinctive attributes and recipes of its own. Traditional Scottish dishes such as haggis and shortbread exist alongside international foodstuffs brought about by migration. Scotland is knownfor the high quality of its beef, potatoes and oats. In addition to foodstuffs, Scotland produces a variety of whiskies.
Welsh cuisine has influenced, and been influenced by,other British cuisine. Although both beef and dairy cattle are raised widely, especially in Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire, Wales is best known for its sheep, and thus lamb is the meattraditionally associated with Welsh cooking.
English cuisine is shaped by the climate of England, its island geography and its history. The latter includes interactions with otherEuropean countries, and the importing of ingredients and ideas from places such as North America, China and southern Asia during the time of the British Empire and as a result of immigration.
