    Smoked Salmon & Cucumber Tea Sandwiches

    Pair with: Five by Five. This series of short films by new writing talent, curated by and starring Idris Elba, feature chance encounters between five characters. Likewise these classic canapes are a reminder of just how much vibrance and flavor you can create with a mere five ingredients.

    Classic Beef Wellington Recipe

    Pair with: Silent Witness. Much like the mysteries on this long-running crime drama about forensic pathologists unfold in complex, two-episode arcs, this classic British dish is a multi-layered affair with new discoveries (crepes! truffled pate! beef tenderloin!) at each layer.

    Endive and Watercress Salad with Apples and Herbs

    Pair with Mum. This comedy, about a woman dealing with her husband's death and her daft family, has been described as "bittersweet brilliance." Perfect to pair with the bitter endive and sweet sliced apples of this refreshing (dare we say, brilliant) salad.
