Ilsa developed this teatowel range of six, focussing on three traditional English dishes which each hold a story that contributes to our collective heritage. 

Toad in the hole (sausages in batter), Beef Wellington (tender beef coated in pate and wrapped in puff pastry) and Bubble and squeak (made with the shallow-fried leftover vegetables from a roast dinner). Toad in the Hole was 1st recorded in print in 1787, named after a pub game of disks being thrown into holes on a table. Toad in the hole is an English interpretation of a French dish, named after the Duke of Wellington, who won the Battle of Waterloo in 1815 because in its larger version the dish looks like a highly polished riding or Wellington boot. Bubble and squeak was a popular dish during World War II, as it was an easy way of using leftovers during a period when most foods were subject to rationing. 

It was important that the graphics reflected the stories and the names of the dishes they represented, equally they had to be simplistic, bright and bold to be eyecatching, easy to produce and appealing to a younger generation to keep the heritage alive.
