Happy St George’s Day!

Happy St George’s day!  Between the 15th and 18th century, this feast day for the patron saint of England was celebrated with as much gusto as Christmas was.  Customs included wearing a rose on your lapel, and celebrating with authentic English food and drink such as meats, stews and pies. Sadly this tradition of celebrating has now faded, though there has been discussion for a while that the 23rd April should be made a public holiday.  In honour of old traditions, we have created a truly English recipe with fantastic seasonal ingredients in honour of the saint who slayed a dragon and saved a princess. We hope you enjoy it!
