Eurovision recipes are just the ticket if you’re a big fan of the singing contest that graces our screens each year. If you’re planning on throwing a Eurovision party this year then you’ve come to the right place. We’ve rounded up some of the top European recipes – from Spanish treats to some German nibbles, there are plenty of traditional dishes to choose from.
Everyone loves an excuse to get the whole family together and what better time than the Eurovision Song Contest. You can have the TV on in the background whilst your friends and family help themselves to your homemade internationally-inspired buffet.
Our Eurovision party recipes cover tapas starters and fancy alcoholic beverages too, for adults only. There’s a few tasty treats in there for the kids to eat as well though – they’ll love trying all the new and exciting foods the countries of Europe have to offer.
From Spain we’ve plumped for a gorgeous, chunky tortilla filled with the flavours of sweet peppers, smoky paprika and fragrant herbs. When it comes to Greece we’ve gone for little lamb kebabs and pitta breads, to give an authentive flavour of those sunny isles. And we couldn’t do a Eurovision recipes round up without a good old fashioned black forest gateau. This delicious cake originates from Germany, but we’ve pinched the recipe from Brit and celeb chef Gordon Ramsay.
Once you’ve chosen your favourites from our round up you can get going on prepping and planning. We like to do as much as possible before the big day so we get plenty of time to relax and enjoy the Eurovisions as well.
