My task today: name 5 food items I would take on a desert island.

Well, clearly the Crawley Clan would never willingly go to a desert island, so I had to modify the question a bit. Here’s what I came up with: if Mrs. Patmore left on vacation, what 5 items would she leave for Daisy to prepare in her absence?

DISCLAIMER: You know I’m not British (shoot!). I got these from Pinterest. I don’t know what they eat “across the pond,” but from movies and TV I’ve seen and books I’ve read, this is what I think the upper crust would likely dine on…


I will be taking a holiday, which, in my opinion, is well deserved. I’m putting you in charge of the kitchen and have provided you with five of my recipes. Don’t disappoint me.

Mrs. Patmore
