Afternoon Tea, Sunday Roast, and Pimm’s cocktails… here are some of my favorite British Recipes.
Yesterday I shared my London Neighborhood Guide, and today I am following that theme and sharing some of my go-to British recipes. I know that British food can have a less than stellar reputation, but after marrying a Brit and spending a good amount of time in London, I have learned to love English cuisine.
The strongest argument for British food might be Sunday Roast. I love the concept of making time for a hearty meal with your family before the work week starts again. I also love the meal itself. The meat main can vary, but it’s always served with potatoes, vegetables, Yorkshire Pudding, and gravy. When we are in London we go to a pub for Sunday Roast, but when we are home in Chicago, I cook it myself. It’s one of the best comfort food meals.
The tradition of Afternoon Tea is even more popular than Sunday Roast – you can even find it offered at restaurants and hotels in America. I love how Afternoon Tea can be a casual get together with friends or served for a more formal occasion like a baby shower, bridal shower, or birthday. It’s also so easy to prepare the food for an Afternoon Tea at home.
