Enjoy Classic Wimbledon and Classic Recipes

Wimbledon

Wimbledon should have begun this week but has been cancelled (for obvious reasons)

 

Instead, the All England Lawn Tennis Club, which stages the championship, has launched ‘Wimbledon Recreated’, a campaign to celebrate the 2020 fortnight in the absence of this year’s championships.

Beginning today, the centrepiece of this campaign; ‘The Greatest Championships’ will provide a round-by-round re-telling of some of the best Wimbledon matches in history, brought to life in a digital experience hosted on wimbledon.com

And in the tradition of ‘strawberries and cream’ why not go one better and make these decadent and delicious dishes?

The Big (Virtual) Lunch and some good news

The big lunch

The Big (Virtual) Lunch

 

At such a difficult time, where people are struggling in so many ways, it’s heartwarming to hear of so many positive stories in local communities.

There are countless acts of community kindness in our own little village every day, but these are most memorable for me: The tiny village bakery now delivers food parcels to the elderly and vulnerable.

We found a leaflet featuring local walks on our doorstep one evening, and one local even dresses-up as Walley (from Where’s Walley?) on his daily walk so that people can spot where he is!

Now more than ever, we need to make
time for each other and say thanks.

The Big Lunch is the UK’s thanksgiving weekend for neighbours and communities; a time where people come together (virtually, of course) to celebrate community connections and get to know one another a little better.

So, let’s get the nation talking with a bite to eat and have some fun with The Big Virtual Lunch this coming weekend.

 

For details on how to hold a virtual lunch for your community take a look at the Eden Project Communities webpage

Marvellous (and Easy!) Mothering Sunday Menu

Mother's Day Menu

Every year I have the romantic vision of a Mother’s Day walk in the spring sunshine

 

This would be followed by a civilised lunch or afternoon tea enjoying ‘mum’ time with my own mum and my children.

The reality is always monsoon-like weather that almost blows us off a hill/into the sea/over a cliff followed by a long queue for a table in a restaurant whilst looking like drowned rats and the children cry/argue/moan because they’re freezing cold and bored.

Obviously, this year things have to be a lot different and I will have to make-do with a phone call to my mum.

With my children, we plan to cook at home together. I’ve chosen an easy and accessible menu that they can follow and that we can enjoy together stress-free. All recipes come from the Around Britain cookbook (look out for the special offer code on this!)

 

 

 

Mothering Sunday Menu

 

Parsnip & Apple Soup

Starter

This creamy soup originates from East Anglia, where root crops thrive in the fertile soil. The sweet and velvety texture of parsnip combines wonderfully with a hint of tart cooking apple.

Teviotdale Pie

Main

Teviotdale is a valley in the Scottish borders, whose principal town is Hawick. This border country has a turbulent history, and saw numerous clashes between Scots and English. This tasty pie from the region is a great recipe for making a little meat go a long way.

Knickerbocker Glory

Dessert

This ice cream extravaganza originated in New York and was named after its original Dutch settlers, the ‘Knickerbockers’. However, its popularity here in Britain is due to an Italian named Pacitto, who opened an ice cream parlour in Redcar where he introduced the Knickerbocker Glory to the British.

British Pie Week

Cumberland Rum Nicky

Recipe of the Week: Cumberland Rum Nicky

 

This may not sound like a recipe to celebrate British Pie Week, but it is and oh what a delicious specimen of pie it is!

This delicious dessert, packed full of dried fruit, ginger and rum is a classic dish from Cumberland in the Northwest of England.

The ports of Whitehaven, Workington and Maryport were at the centre of the UK run trade in the 18th century, importing rum, molasses and sugar from the Caribbean. The Cumbrians combined these imported ingredients to create this scrumptious pudding.
