Some of the best gourmet restaurants and bakeries in the world, from all around the world are in very short supply, with many of them not open at all, leaving the food to languish in their warehouses and under their kitchen tables.
The lack of demand has meant that gourmet cuisine has become more difficult to find, says Kate Jones, author of The Gourmet Guide to British Food, and founder of Food and Drink, an online guide to British gastronomy.
“People are looking for something that has gone through the gastronomic purview of their own kitchen,” she says.
“It’s very much a British phenomenon, it’s not just a foreign one.”
The shortage of gourmet cooking is partly due to the fact that it is so difficult to source ingredients from outside the country.
In the UK, for example, many countries use only a few ingredients, such as beef and chicken, and then store them in warehouses.
In other countries, such a practice is frowned upon.
For example, in Ireland, where most of the world’s meat is sourced, the Irish government has tried to reduce the number of cattle slaughtered by limiting slaughter to six animals per herd.
The government also has restricted the use of antibiotics, which could make it more difficult for animals to grow food in the UK.
In some countries, though, this is not the case, and there are still many small businesses that rely on imported ingredients to survive.
“You can get a good selection of gourmets in a small shop in London and that’s good, but if you’re going to go to a big food shop and find a gourmet restaurant, that’s a big effort,” Jones says.
The problem of sourcing the right ingredients has also meant that there is no shortage of recipes for savoury food, with recipes being created to cater for the different tastes of different cultures.
But, because the British are so geographically and culturally diverse, there is also no shortage.
Some of these recipes, such in the British restaurant industry, are quite different to the American and European ones, says Jones.
“For example, if you look at the British menu, there are many different dishes that are called british food,” she explains.
Jones says that in many cases, the recipes are simply a way of describing the cuisine, rather than a recipe. “
But we’re also going for the cheese sandwich, the burger bun and the fried pickles.”
Jones says that in many cases, the recipes are simply a way of describing the cuisine, rather than a recipe.
But it does help to understand the origins of the recipes, and if you know the recipe, you can better understand what is in the ingredients, says Katie O’Connor, a food writer based in London.
“What makes a recipe unique is the origin.
So if you have a recipe that is a recipe from Ireland, that was first developed in Ireland and then adapted to British tastes and it’s been passed on from generation to generation, it will be recognisable,” she told Al Jazeera.
“The most successful chefs will have recipes that are very, very close to their own cooking.”

Connor has been following the rise of ganache and gastropub culture in the United Kingdom since her book The Great Gourmet: British Food in the Nineties, published in 2008.
She says that while many people in the US love ganaches and other gourmet sweets, in the last few years, many of these same chefs have turned to making their own sweets.
She cites the likes of the British chef, John Coughlan, who has created a range of delicious desserts and other sweets in his home country of Ireland, and the chef, Richard Branson, who recently opened a chain of vegan restaurants.
“He’s a very big fan of ganshakes and ganachons and he’s a huge fan of the UK as well, which is why we’re so into it,” she said.
O’Connor says that because of the sheer volume of recipes, it is difficult to pinpoint a favourite recipe, and it is easy to get confused about the exact ingredients.
“I’ve always loved the cheesecake from the Baking Company, but I’ve never actually tried it, because I thought it was too expensive,” she tells Al Jazeera, referring to the ganacakes and other desserts made by the famous bakery chain.
The American chef, Graham Elliot, is a fan of Grahams ganake, and he is creating a ganagelike dessert at his restaurants in the city of Toronto, Ontario.
The ganagoel, which comes in two flavours: chocolate and strawberry, is made from chocolate mousse and strawberries.
