British Food & Drink for the Jubilee & Olympic Games

Celebrating the Queen’s Jubilee wouldn’t be complete without the British food and drink!

Our family celebrated yesterday with some roast lamb and roast potatoes, but you can also use these ideas during the Olympic Games taking place in London in July!

Fill a pitcher of Pimms (available at Bevmo) filled with slices of cucumber, strawberries, orange and fresh mint… of and course some sweet treats for dessert!

For dessert we make “Eton Mess”, which is a really easy summer pudding to make. Just fill a glass (or plastic cup for a BBQ) with chopped up summer berries (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries etc) and crumbled meringue. Then pour some cream on top and a couple of scoops of ice cream. You could grate some dark chocolate on top, add a strawberry or sprig of mint for decorate.

On the dessert table I laid out fruit scones with a pot of double cream and strawberry jam.

Also some cupcakes that I decorated with a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee cake topper, which I found at Lakeland when I went back to London a few weeks ago.

I also found the Jubilee flag bunting there too, I was so inspired by how the British stores were gearing up for a summer of celebrations (Olympics next), and how the nation is embracing its Union Jack flag and rich heritage!

God save the Queen and go UK team this summer!
