Mother knows best - at least when it comes to the kitchen, according to a survey.

Given the choice, 40% of Britons would choose their mother's home cooking over their partner's or even a meal cooked by a top chef in a five-star restaurant, a poll found.

Men, in particular, appreciate their home comforts, with 29% preferring their mother's home cooking to their mates and even their football team.

And 31% wished their partners cooked more like their mothers, although only 24% would let on.

Top meals were roast dinner, shepherd's pie, bangers and mash, sausage, chips and beans and a fry up.

The poll of 1,178 British adults was commissioned by Richmond Sausages, which is searching for the nation's favourite sausage-based recipe by launching an online "the taste that brings them home" competition.

Richmond Sausages is part of Kerry Foods Group, and Derek Williamson, marketing director of Kerry Foods, said: "An overwhelming 40% of the population prefer their mum's home cooking to anyone else's, so we want to find and celebrate the nation's ultimate taste that brings them home recipe."
