Let’s be honest here: What food and Downton Abbey lover, while staring googly-eyed at the television, doesn’t wish for a moment that they were Daisy?
Sure, she’s bullied by everyone on the staff, and sure, that whole marrying-William-for-a-hot-second thing was awkward. (We never understood her hesitation, anyway. William was adorable.) But we’d love nothing more than to learn about British cuisine under the expert-if-grumpy Mrs. Patmore—and to make those pies, those roasts, and those grand luncheons and dinners with her skill, her gusto, her confidence.
It’s in honor of Daisy and Mrs. Patmore that we bring you a Downton Abbey-inspired menu for the third season’s premiere tonight. To cook like Mrs. Patmore, and eat like the Granthams? Why, that sounds even more exciting than the premiere itself. (Well, almost.)
