We don’t know about you, but the news that the Duchess of Cambridge (aka Kate Middleton) and Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, announced the birth of their third royal baby, a healthy 8 pound 7 ounce boy, has us very excited. Fifth in line to the throne, little Louis has already made an appearance on Instagram.
To celebrate the special day (St. George’s Day, no less), we’ve compiled a delicious British-inspired feast to toast the good health of the royal baby and indeed, the good health of every baby born today around the world.
We begin with the classic, light, and fruity Pimm’s Cup, a classic drink for a classic moment. We then bake up a Shepherd’s Pot Pie, a small twist on the iconic dish, and serve it up with not mushy peas but Lemony Peas with Bacon and Tarragon. (We know there are some peas in the pot pie, but it’s traditional to serve more as an accompaniment. If you’d rather not have more peas, you can swap them out f0r the Yorkshire Pudding with Fresh Thyme, a popover-type bread that is positively addicting.) And we end it with something that is anything but a trifle to eat–a Raspberry Lemon Mousse Trifle. We suspect the British royal family is having something similar for dinner, too!
