How many Brits do their food shopping online? Which European cheese do we buy more regularly now than 10 years ago? How many of us sit down to eat with a partner every day? The answers to these, and more questions about the nation’s eating habits, are revealed in our 2017 Good Food Nation survey results.

We continue to celebrate Britain’s diverse food culture, meeting 10 food pioneers who are bringing their favourite flavours to the UK, from Syrian halloumi-making in Yorkshire, to a South Indian pickle company in London. Plus, there are plenty of recipes, including Rosie Birkett’s seasonal suppers, our easiest ever midweek meals and recipes from the new BBC programme The Big Family Cooking Showdown.
