Netflix's original film series, "The Crown," is set to make its second season premiere soon, and we couldn't be more excited about it. Below we have outlined six unique British recipes that you can eat while enjoying the new episodes. How better to experience British royalty fiction than with a platter of decadent meals?
You'll agree that seeing movies is not only about the film and that the accompanying snacks can also be a highlight. If you're planning to catch up on past episodes of "The Crown" or the upcoming season, try making these delicious meals that are indeed befitting of royalty.
1. British Roast Vegetable Salad with Stilton
Having some delicious roast on Sundays is somewhat of a British tradition. You are sure to enjoy this hearty meal with its ensemble content of chicken with gravy and a side of vegetables. The meal can also include lamb and mint sauce or beef and Yorkshire puddings, based on personal preference.
2. Orange-Cranberry Scones with Turbinado Sugar
This recipe makes the perfect dessert for movie time; it is sweet and simply a beautiful sight to behold. The dense cranberry-studded scones get a toffee-like flavor from the uniquely textured light brown turbinado sugar.
3. Shepherd's Pie
For an authentic taste of classic British cuisine, try the shepherd's pie. It is a delicious combination of chopped lamb with a mashed-potato topping, and you're sure never to stop making it.
4. English Crumpets
The English Crumpets are soft and thick porous breads that are considered a staple in the UK because they are very easy to prepare; it takes merely four simple steps to prepare them. Even better, you can prepare them some five days before consumption.
5. Eton Mess
This dessert traditionally features strawberries, meringue, and whipped cream. While, a more modern version includes additions like pink peppercorns to the meringue and cardamom to the whipped cream, and swap baked rhubarb compote for the fresh strawberries.
6. Beans and Bacon on Buttered Toasts
This hearty fork-and-knife dish from Hugh Acheson is perfect for a quick, easy dinner for two.
