The nights are getting darker and there is a chill in the air, what’s the best way to combat the cold atmosphere? Winter warmers! From age-old traditional british food to much-loved modern favourites. Here’s how we plan on keeping the fire in our bellies this season.
Sweet potato and butternut squash soup
A favourite and a classic - how could you go wrong? Hearty winter vegetables, maybe even a pinch of chilli to liven things up, served with a chunky piece of homemade rustic bread… it's what cold days are made for.
Bangers and mash
You can get more quintessentially british than a good plate of bangers and mash. With cumberland sausages and fluffy King Edward mash potatoes with milk and butter you can't go wrong. A coating of gravy will add that extra touch.
Steak and ale pie
A traditional winter warmer – steak and ale pie with a crusty pastry lid. Serve with extra helping of gravy and seasonal vegetables. Make sure you save some of the ale to complement the pie.
Moroccan one-pot chicken
A modern favourite prepared across various hours in either a tagine or in a slow cooker for flavour and tenderness of the chicken. The traditional Moroccan spices add that fire to your belly to help keep you warm.
Black forest gateaux
Who doesn’t like a good dessert but when it comes to winter a dense Black forest gateaux with a large helping of winter berries and a dollop of thick double cream is enough to tickle your taste buds across the season!
