REMEMBER, REMEMBER

Remember, remember the 5th of November.. Gunpowder, treason and plot!

We’re really loving Autumn this year, and can’t wait to pack in as many bonfire and fireworks displays as possible this weekend!  Bonfire Night means warm & comforting food – hot dogs and toffee apples are a must!  While there’s lots going on in London and further afield, if you’re planning to stay at home over the weekend we’ve got a delicious gourmet bonfire night menu for you to impress your guests (and don’t worry, it’s all super simple to make!)

POSH BANGERS

Sausages are always a real crowd-pleaser, and kids and adults will love both of these ‘posh’ options.

Mini toad-in-the-holes are proper party food – glammed up by using chorizo instead of plain old bangers.

For a grown-up take on hotdogs, this scrummy recipe uses bratwurst with a red onion, chilli and coriander salsa for instant heat!

ONE POT WONDERS

These two dishes might take a little up-front effort, but it’s well worth it seeing your guests all tuck in to these delicious dishes. Communal eating at it’s best!

Jamie is the master of these kind of dishes, and his Chilli Con Carne is one of my favourites. Cooked over an open fire it’s a sure-fire way to impress your guests, but you could also make it on the stove or in a slow cooker.

Fondue is one of my go-to winter dishes, hello cheese overload!! This one is served in a whole roasted pumpkin giving it a yummy Autumn twist, served with baguette and roasted garlic potatoes this one is sure to be loved.

STICKY TOFFEE

It wouldn’t be bonfire night without a toffee apple sticky enough to break your teeth!

Kids will love these updated nutty apples with a hint of cinnamon for extra warmth.

This sticky toffee apple cake is a grown-up take on the classic – but we’re pretty sure both kids and adults will love it.

MARSHMALLOW MADNESS

Another classic bonfire night treat, is there anything better than gooey, melting marshmallows?

I love these mini smores stations – perfect for keeping the kids entertained (and a totally sweet idea if you’re not having a big bonfire of your own!) All you’ll need is some teracotta pots, tin foil and charcoal!

Last but certainly not least, how could we forget the humble hot chocolate? Except, this is no humble hot choc!!  Make in a crock pot (that’s a slow cooker to us Brits!) with coconut and condensed milk, topped with coconut whipped cream and marshmallows this is certainly the most indulgent of treats – but oh so worth it! You’ll walk it off on Sunday’s autumnal stroll anyway, right?!
