England‘s food has earned itself a reputation for blandness over the years, but with historic recipes dating back to the Victorian times, inventive use of staple ingredients and some notoriously wacky names (think ‘bubble & squeak’ or ‘spotted dick pudding’), traditional English cuisine has plenty of surprises up its sleeve. Here are six of the nation’s most beloved dishes to get you started.

1. Bangers and Mash
Hearty pork sausages (bangers) and creamy mashed potato (mash) make up this classic pub dish, typically served up with meat gravy and a side of greens. Add a twist to the sausages by opting for ‘Toad in the Hole’—sausages baked inside a giant Yorkshire pudding (a savory cake made from oven-baked batter).
