Jubilee food ideas from Philadelphia

The Philadelphia press office has sent me some yummy recipes in time for the Jubilee Bank Holiday. Have a lovely jubbly Jubilee with my personal favourites - handy for street parties!

1. To make the potato cakes, cook the potatoes in boiling water until tender. Drain and
mash until smooth.
