Your royal wedding countdown. You're laughing with me, right? What American influence will we see on the couple's big day? Food designer Peter Callahan is here. Yeah, you are. He is the author of "The party food cookbook" he's here to compare American treats to traditional British ones. I hear we're supposed to hug the table because something is coming down. They already did, okay. Thank you for this. It's so fun to be here. There's going to be a lot of watch Pears. You have suggestions. Yeah, so we've -- our idea you pair up some traditional British food and American food and then sort of have a vote. Who does it better? Let's put -- do we have paddles? Everybody has a paddle? Okay. So we're going to have you go. So what do you have to start off with. To start off with, of course, is the American here and this is a mini grilled cheese and we've paired it up against Welsh rarebit but mind you, this is not any ordinary grilled cheese, it's miniature which by the way I would -- How do you make these little things. Well, we get a little crazy so we made little pans and made the bread but the dip for everyone at home is you can buy a cookie cutter in this shape and just punch it out. See, that's -- all right? That's a great tip. And then and then to make it you could perhaps serve this at the royal wedding, use some gruyere. You're picking it up a notch. The British alternative is what. Welsh rarebit. So basically toast with melted cheese, a little beer and cream in it. So which one would you rather? Can you show us your paddles and tastes? Okay, that wasn't fair. That was not a fair fight. Okay, more of the may course here. What do you have, Peter? For the main course and by the way we have served this at very fancy weddings. We've got three different burgers. We have a cheeseburger, Turkey burger, a vegetable burger, French fries or over here representing Britain, we've got fish and chips. Okay. I don't know. Mind you -- Do you have a tip for -- So the tip here is if you freeze the burger patties and take them right from the freezer and put them on the grill or the griddle you can get a nice char outside with having the right temperature inside. Nice, nice. So which one is it? So which -- Really? No love for the fish and chips? We got some love for the fish and chips. First of all it's so hard to tell the difference between the two, okay. They look the same as they should be. Sweets here to bring us on home. Okay, so we're ending up over here. We've got a chocolate lava cake. Mm-mm. For America. And then we've got over here a sticky toffee pudding. It's so good. Okay. So what is your tip here. The tip here is you want these all nice and gooey in the center when they come out of the oven so put the ramekin with the batter in the fridge six hours before you serve it straight from the fridge to the oven. These are really good suggestions. Yes. And a quick vote. The lava or the -- Lava. I can't tell the difference. The flags look the same. Peter, thank you so much. You can get Peter's recipes on our website at goodmorningamerica.com. Excellent one. We'll be right back.
