The standard, and ever-broadening range, of foods has taken great strides in Britain over the last decade - and the Tesco supermarket chain has largely kept pace with this, offering a wide selection of good value products.
Whilst few might be termed 'gourmet' - many fit the bill for everyday living - so although Gourmet Britain has had many complaints over the fact that we list their shops in our guide, we will continue to give their addresses for your convenience - unless there is what we consider to be a much better supermarket nearby.
Bear in mind though, that specialist shops will on nearly every occasion offer foods with more character and quality.
