Week 3: Food and Drink with Neesha and Liz

This week we have two videos of food and drink videos to give you a taste of holiday from home. Whilst we are all stuck indoors this year with our summer vacations cancelled for the foreseeable future let’s give our taste buds a real treat with these two easy to follow recipes for paella and a cocktail.

  1. Paella Rice
  2. Onion
  3. Pepper
  4. Prawns/Chicken
  5. Peas
  6. Olive oil
  7. Garlic oil
  8. White wine vinegar
  9. Paprika
  10. Salt
  11. Thyme
  12. Chicken stock cube
  13. Saffron

Paella is a Spanish one-pot dish that you can easily make at home, using this recipe and video with Neesha.

It’s so good to enjoy a cocktail when you’re on holiday. This one can be made as a ‘mocktail’ or you can put some fizz in it. 

Pour equal quantities of cranberry juice, ginger ale and any kind of fizzy wine into a glass and ice if you like it. We also suggested decorating your cocktail to get a proper holiday feel with a slice of fruit balanced on the rim, you can then attach the other decorations easily. For example I made a cocktail umbrella using simple household items, which (as shown in the video) plus a paper flamingo. Don’t forget a straw! You can be as creative as you like. 

Liz has made this short video on how to make this cocktail along with your very own cocktail umbrella.

Name this cocktail Liz hasn’t given the cocktail a name yet, so if you have a good idea for one, get in touch! We’d love to hear your suggestions.
