As with Super bowl Sunday and college tailgating throughout the fall, you can’t celebrate the Olympics without delicious eating.
The Monki collected his favorite british recipes to help you get into the spirit of our hosts in jolly old England. Of course, he is also cheering for Team USA, so he has rounded up plenty of truly American specialties as well.
Let us know your best british and absolutely American recipes in the comments. Or better yet, add them to Kitchen Monki or tweet to us at @KitchenMonki!
Good news this time around for Olympic coverage too. NBC is providing live streams of all events. No more waiting around for the prime time packages or ruining the results with Twitter spoilers.
If you’re a cable or satellite subscriber with CNBC and MSNBC in your TV lineup, log in at NBCOlympics.com/LiveExtra to watch coverage of every event live online AND on mobile devices.
Thanks to The Sunbreak for that tip! Reporter Seth Kolloen also created a website that tells you when–in Pacific time–all the most important Olympic events are happening.
