Three Cheers Ma'am
A service at Westminster Abbey will celebrate Commonwealth Day on Monday 14 March.
As this is Her Majesty’s 70th Jubilee Year, there will be a special focus on the role that her extraordinary service plays and has played, in the lives of people and communities across the Commonwealth.
Our own little celebration looks at three iconic products, originating in the UK and now popular across the Commonwealth and the world.
Coronation, Piccalilli & Brown Sauce
The original recipe was created for The Queen’s Coronation Banquet in 1953 by student Angela Wood and is as royally tasty today.
A unique British pickle dating back to mid 18thC using mid-Asian spices to make ‘Paco-Lilla’, or ‘India Pickle’, perfectly pairing pork pies.
Known as ‘the English sauce‘ in the States, our very special, very British, very ‘grownup’ Brown Sauce is made better with lots of date purée and Persian spices.
We have three wonderful mustards, each with their own distinctive qualities.
Our Cider & Horseradish Mustard is made with cider vinegar, British dry cider, horseradish and a blend of flavour-popping yellow & black mustard seeds.
On it, with it, in it.
Stokes condiments can be used in so many ways to make food better. Mixed with a little cream, the bursts of seed-popping wholegrain flavour lead a lingering horseradish finish, makes a truly tasty sauce to pour over a juicy steak.
Simply spooned onto the side of the plate with a delicious roast, vegetables, Yorkshire pudding and lashings of gravy.
Classic English Mustard makes a classic Sunday Roast.
For a weekend brunch, a Croque Madame is a delightful thing. So French, so Dijon, so tasty. Our Resident Chef, Andy has his own take on the recipe – HERE.
So enjoy !
Something Lighter for Lunch
We’re not going to tell you how to make a Caesar Salad, but we are going to recommend our Creamy Caesar Dressing, made with free-range eggs, parmesan cheese and garlic. Yum.
We’re not going to tell you how to make a Potato Salad, even one as amazing as this. You guessed it, we are going to recommend you learn more about our truly glorious Mayonnaise Family – HERE.
Weekending, Rugby, Burgers !
Tomato Ketchup and more.
Our Burger Relish is just that, transforming your burgers into something special with its red pepper, tomato and onion salsa, finishing subtly with a note of chilli.
