Millions of people are watching the Olympics on TV screens around the world. Whether you’re watching at home, with family & friends or at public big screen, we’ve gathered together some of our favourite snacks from across the globe at Great British Chefs & some fun sporty snacks to keep you happy throughout your viewing
Let’s kick start this guide by honouring of Team GB’s first Gold Medal at the games in women’s rowing. We love this celery, grape, cream cheese and pretzel sticks snack from Berlitos Group. They said “You can also use cucumber for base and fill with spreadable cheese and olives - why not try racing the two canoes whichever is eaten faster is the winner of the gold medal”
We also found an amazing watermelon carving of a swimmer bursting out the water. Admittedly this would be harder to reproduce at home!
We also found someone who had created a whole sports stadium made from food!
For lighter appetites and for food that has a bit more taste, we think you’ll prefer some of the international snacks from our Great British Chefs.
Scotch eggs have surged back into fashion in recent times and now can be found on the menu of many restaurants and pubs throughout Britain. Galton Blackiston’s Scotch egg recipe uses quail’s eggs but hen’s eggs will work just as well. For a fish alternative try Richard Corrigan’s Smoked Cod Scotch Eggs with aoli.
Pissaladière is a cheese-free pizza which is often served up in the south of France. Pascal Aussignac tops his with anchovies, olives and caramelised onions. If you prefer your pizzas with cheese try these mini barbecue pizzas from Frances Atkins.
Speaking of dips, Nathan Outlaw’s Cheese fondue is a fun treat. Cheddar is a fantastic cheese for fondue, but you can use other cheeses or a mix of cheese for this fondue recipe, such as Emmental, Gruyere or Gouda. When it comes to the beer which is added to the sauce, if you can’t find Sharps Doom Bar, use a light to medium British ale.
These playful bacon & scallop tasty treats only take ten minutes to make and will be the talk of any party.
