With three England games already prepped, on the 18th June against Tunisia, the 24th June against Panama and the 28th June against Belgium, we’ve got some exciting Summer watching!
Pair the Harissa with a pork pie – we’d go for a mini pork pie or mini pork and pickle – perhaps even a snack pork pie so that it’s easy to eat for everyone invited that will be distracted by cheering at the telly. There are of course, so many easy in front-of-the-TV accompaniments to pair with a pork pie, perhaps include a spread of condiments. You could also add a crowd favourite of some nachos with cheese and salsa – these always go down a treat and are a great snack to make at half time to help with the second half nerves!
To drink with this simple pairing, we’d go for a simple craft beer or Corona. Not wanting to complicate football food but still wanting it to be yummy, we thought this combination would really compliment each other in flavours. Again, whilst Harissa is meant to be hot, it’s really easy to make less so just by altering the amount of chilies – you could even make a mild and a hot so that everyone’s happy!
Enjoy the World Cup – who will you be cheering for?
