A Wimbledon inspired Summer Menu

A Wimbledon inspired Summer Menu

The Wimbledon Tennis Championship comes to a close this weekend, with what is expected to be a truly gripping final!

Celebrating 140 years of Wimbledon, this year’s Great British Menu challenged the most prestigious chefs from around the UK to create a menu revelling a taste of summer using the best of British ingredients.

This week’s blog post includes all the recipes you need, inspired by the final banquet menu, for the perfect Wimbledon inspired garden party. We have our fingers crossed that the weather holds out – although it wouldn’t be Wimbledon without a bit of rain!

Light Tomato Consommé


Tomatoes scream great British summer! Inspired by Pip Lacey’s starter ‘Whatever the Weather’, this ‘Essence of Tomato’ clear tomato consommé is an easy winner for a light summer meal.

Simple to make, this consommé can be scaled up or down depending on the number of guests attending.

Turbot & Berries

Image & Recipe

An unusual combination, green strawberries have a sharper taste than their ripened red relatives that complement the turbot’s elegant flavour. When selecting your turbot whole, look for bright eyes and a fresh smell of seawater to ensure you choose the finest fillets.

Ox Tongue

Image & Recipe

The unique flavours and textures of this meat propelled Michael Bremnor to the banquet, and is surprisingly easy to cook at home.

‘Long & slow’ is the trick to cooking this cut to perfection, achieving a rich pate-like texture. Brining the meat in a mixture of salt and herbs beforehand will help to boost the flavour for a succulent main dish.

Peach, Jelly and Elderflower Jelly

Image & Recipe

Reminiscent of the famously British Pimm’s Summer cup, this desert is a more refined version of Selin Kiazim’s dessert of Peach Jelly and Muhallebi – similar to blancmange.

Using rose wine, white peaches and elderflower cordial, this recipe sings ‘Great British Summer’. Served with a glass of ice cold Pimm’s – what better way to end a quintessentially British dinner party?
