With the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee 2012 rapidly approaching, many of us are busy preparing for one of the biggest celebrations in history. If you haven’t signed up with your neighbourhood street party organisers, then what are you waiting for? It’s the perfect opportunity to share good food, sample next door’s cooking and swap stories with the neighbours. After all, these occasions don’t come around often; the last jubilee street party was in 1977!
Nielsen-Massey, premium extract producer, has devised two recipes that will surely impress your neighbours. The creamy, sweet, velvety flavour of Nielsen-Massey Vanilla Extract works perfectly with any dessert.
Nielsen-Massey’s first tasty treat perfectly reflects the royal occasion – it’s a traditional Victoria Sponge. The second, is something quintessentially British developed by Will Torrent, award winning celebrity pastry chef. This delicious Royal Jubilee Trifle is sure to excite everyone’s taste buds. Will includes a few shortcuts for the time conscious and enriches this classic dessert using quality ingredients for a truly luxurious taste including mouth-watering white chocolate, vanilla custard, fresh berries and glazed meringue. So what are you waiting for? Join in the fun and share this truly special moment!
