Fancy a Party? How About a Street Party
May 24th, 2012
We’re getting very, very excited here at WG HQ
Not because we’ll be getting a long weekend soon (although that does perk us up) but because this bank holiday weekend means super street parties – Yay!
There’s nothing better than whole communities coming together and celebrating significant events in the nation’s calendar and what an event this year..
The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee!
If you’re planning a Diamond Jubilee party you might like to know a bit about the history of this Brit tradition.
They began in 1919 and were known as ‘Peace Teas’ in celebration of the signing of the Versailles treaty following the First World War.
Since then they’ve been a part of British society for major royal and national events like the millennium and, more recently, the wedding of Prince William and Catherine.
Incidentally, we’re also thrilled to announce that this year’s jubilee weekend coincides with National BBQ Week from the 28th May – 3rd June.
So not only will we be hosting fab feasts in our streets but also firing up the BBQ for some delish treats.
If you’re struggling for some scrummy ideas here are some of our fave dishes to keep the masses satisfied:
- Mini chicken and mushroom vol-au-vents – these little puff pastry treats are fun, delish and so more-ish. They’re especially scrummy when made with WG’s very own chicken breast fillets and a homemade puff pastry shell
- Coronation chicken served with rice, pasta or in a sarnie – for the diamond jubilee you must make coronation chicken. Created for the Queen’s coronation in 1953 you simply can’t celebrate her 60 years on the throne without it! Why not try our fab coronation recipe we’ve gone and published for you
- Homemade mini sausage rolls – let’s face it, sausage rolls are the perfect party food and no street feast will be complete without them!
- BBQ chicken yakitori kebabs – Everyone loves a good BBQ kebab and for all you health conscious ones they’re low in fat, packed full of nutrients and taste amazing! For a no mess, no fuss way of cooking use our diced chicken breast fillets and skewer them with plenty of chopped up veggies.
And remember when cooking on the BBQ make sure the chicken is cooked all the way through before serving – you don’t want to be ill on the long bank holiday!
So, now you know what we’re planning: BBQ’s and streets feasts, but what we’re really interested in is what you’ve got planned so why not tell us about it on Facebook..
