As the range of convenience food grew, the 90s saw us try new styles of cooking, ingredients and growing nutritional awareness.

What we ate then

The last decade of the 20th century saw food companies launch a raft of quick-fix meals. Microwave chips, cheese strings and Turkey Twizzlers offered solutions for busy families – the latter caught the attention of rising celebrity chef Jamie Oliver who later decried the nutritional value of such foods for children.

However, the decade marked a turning point in nutritional understanding, with consumers starting to question where their food had originated from.

Globalisation saw an influx of 'new' ingredients on our shelves and Delia Smith featured many of these – such as sun-dried tomatoes, cranberries and blueberries, along with authentic Asian ingredients – in her books and television cookery shows.

Fusion food dominated the restaurant scene with dishes combining different cuisines and ingredients, such as Tex-Mex. Gastro-pubs, which upgraded the humble inn with stylish interiors and creative menus, started to appear around the country. Wine sales soared and supermarkets started to devote aisles to bottles from around the world.
