Blog: Was lasagne originally an English dish?

Catherine Sleep | 15 July 2003

It is being claimed today that one of the most popular examples of Italian cuisine, lasagne, was in fact invented in England. Research for a mediaeval festival in Gloucestershire found a version of the dish, termed loseyns (pronounced lasan) in the ancient English cookery book The Forme of Cury, first published in 1390.

Could the discovery push forward the ongoing rehabilitation of English cooking?

Gloucestershire, birthplace of the... lasagne?
