sandwiches being sliced into sections

Nothing evokes the onset of an English summer more than the Wimbledon tennis championships. Between the drama, tears and triumphs, though, we can celebrate another English success – the afternoon tea. So between showers, turn that radio on and indulge in some lovely tea-time treats from Jamie’s great range of classics. Here are just three ideas to get you game and set for putting your feet up.

First service – Pigeon is such a delicate and gamey meat and makes a really tasty sandwich filling – this Flying steak sandwich is one of Jamie’s favourites.

Second set – What about a gorgeous fresh salad to go with your sarnies? Watch Jamie’s rules for the perfect salad on

Match point – Enjoy this lovely treat of a carrot cake, made all the more surprising with the addition of lime in the mascarpone icing!
