Bangers & Mash
Posted by Andy Steves in on February 3, 2011.
Tonight I enjoyed dinner at my London guide, Matt’s apartment in North London. We had Bangers and Mash, or what I’m learning is quintessential English cuisine. That translates to large dinner sausages and mashed potatoes. I love going to my friends’ houses across Europe because that’s when you really get a unique view into their daily life and environment. I also learned that the sausages picked up the name “Banger” back in WWII when the rationing of meat was so severe that the meat content counted for less than 25% of the sausage itself at times—the rest was filled with water. So, when heated, the sausage would explode, or Bang.
