So you didn't receive an invite for Will and Kate's wedding, that's okay. You can still party like a royal or at least brunch like one.
We've pulled together all the traditional dishes that make up a classic British brunch. So, whether you're tuning in to the wedding from home or hosting a royal get-together these treats are sure to please even the stuffiest English gents.
Scones are probably the most popular British breakfast, lunch, whenever food to hit America ever. The soft and flaky treat come in a multitude of flavors, and whether you prefer the straightforward herb drop or the more fun lemon blueberry you can't really go wrong. For our special party we handpicked Emeril's rosemary-infused buttermilk scones served with an orange curd sauce.
Cinnamon Rolls Scones aren't the only pastry treat to make an impression, cinnamon rolls are equally popular and just as delicious. The yeasted dough is smothered with butter, sugar and spices and it literally melts in your mouth. Try a dash of clotted cream on the side for an especially English touch. Click here for the recipe.
Up next we have a classic dish, lemon curd. Most American's know this tart, creamy custard only as a filling in cakes and pies. However, this dish is quite refreshing, particularly when paired with a sweet scone or fresh bun. Check out Emeril's approachable recipe, and impress your friends with your culinary skills.
Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
Fresh fruit is a necessity for any brunch menu. It's even better when that fresh fruit is dipped in chocolate. Fresh strawberries will be in season just in time for the royal wedding, so treat yourself to a few. It's fruit after all. Take a look at this recipe.
There are few things more British than traditional tea sandwiches. Often served with cucumber or egg salad, these bite-sized delights are just enough to wet your appetite. Give this cucumber and salmon version a try.
There's nothing quite like a trifle. Layered whip cream, cake, fruit and sauce is good no matter what order you serve it in. Make this strawberry version the centerpiece of your brunch and you'll feel like royalty.
Orange Spice Tea
Wash all these goodies down with a piping hot cup of spice tea. Emeril's version blends just the right amoung of flavored spices without drowning the natural flavor of the tea. Click here for the recipe.
Of course, if your looking for something a little stronger Beefeater's Crown Punch will do the trick.
