The big event of the year is the Coronation Day. King Charles's Coronation will be celebrated with street parties and barbecue parties all around the UK and these will continue all over the long Bank Holiday weekend. Why not create a Souvla BBQ feast fit for a king or a royal feast fit for the occasion.

Sunday 7th May

Today is all about Sunday Lunch and Pudding. Whether you prefer traditional lamb or a lighter BBQ dish. For us the best Sunday Lunch is always Souvla with family and friends.

Share your delicious creations with us and show us your Souvla and favourite Cypriot desserts. 

At the end of a BBQ, while the coals are still hot, we love to put a couple of pineapples on the skewers, just add a little icing sugar and cinnamon they are delicious

Finally, on Bank Holiday Monday, it's time to prepare a Bank Holiday BBQ picnic. From halloumi skewers to souvlaki or gyros wraps, let's share our favourite Mediterranean -inspired picnic foods.
