Queen Elizabeth turns 90 today
With Her Majesty celebrating her 90th birthday, there’s never been a better time to be proud to be British, so let us celebrate by preparing a traditional British meal. Here a few recipes for home cooked dinners that we all love!
The Great British Brekkie
A couple of years ago, the Queen’s chef revealed that she likes to eat breakfast alone, and tends to dine on cornflakes or Special K. However, we’re willing to bet that she’s had a few full English in her time! Turn things up a notch – and set yourself up for the special day – with this feast, featuring bacon, eggs, tomatoes and mushrooms.
Beef and Potato Pasty
As Walker and Son emerged victorious at the British Pie Awards last month, cooking a chicken and pork pie for the Queen’s birthday celebrations, a storm raged over whether a pasty should be allowed to take home a prize. Well, we reckon that our delicious beef and potato pasty recipe would give most pie makers a run for their money!,
English Garden Spaghetti
The monarchy’s multicultural heritage is well-known, and this dish combines the finest homegrown produce with that most Italian of foodstuffs, spaghetti. Mamma Mia!
Traditional Shepherd’s Pie
Shepherd’s pie originated in the northern reaches of the UK, but this traditional dish is something we can all get behind. Add grated cheddar cheese, or something stronger, if you’d prefer. If you’re looking to lose weight, it’s probably best not to adopt the royal chef’s mash recipe – it’s rather heavy! [

And, seeing as we’re celebrating Elizabeth II entering her tenth decade, here’s a photo of her enjoying Prestige’s stand at the British Industrial Fair in 1949, when she was still a Princess. Philip looks particularly impressed! 67 years later, our range of
cookware is still standing strong – now, how about that Royal Warrant?
