Do you ever find yourself watching your favourite film or TV show, and wish that you could taste one of the dishes they’re enjoying?
Following on from the popular Fictional Foods competition ran by Wren Kitchens in February, The UK’s No.1 kitchen retailer has now teamed up with MasterChef 2020 Champion, Thomas Frake, to create gourmet fictional food recipes that you can make at home.
The recipes are inspired by:
• The Friend’s “Shepherd’s Pie” Trifle (don’t worry, there’s no actual beef and mash)
• The iconic Krabby Patty from SpongeBob SquarePants
• The chocolate cake made famous by Bruce Bogtrotter in Matilda
Get closer to the action of your favourite TV shows and films by making these three delicious recipes!

The Friend’s “Shepherd’s Pie” Trifle

Serves 4
Ingredients
• 2 large chocolate brownies or chocolate muffins
• 25ml cold espresso coffee
• 200ml double cream
• 200ml whole milk
• 2 eggs
• 50g icing sugar
• 50g dark chocolate
• 400ml double cream
• 100g icing sugar
• 1 tbsp. vanilla paste
This desert is of course inspired by the iconic dish made by Rachel in Friend’s, when she makes half a shepherd’s Pie and half a trifle. Unlike the Friends gang, you don’t have to worry about beef and mash in this take, but can instead enjoy the creamy flavours paired cleverly with sharp coffee and delicious brownie.

The Krabby Patty

Serves 4
Ingredients
• 500g skinned salmon fillets
• 300g raw peeled prawns
• 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
• 2 tbsp fresh dill
• Salt, to taste
• Pepper, to taste
• 1 tbsp flour
• 1 tbsp vegetable oil
• 4 tbsp mayonnaise
• 2 tbsp tomato ketchup
• 2 tbsp Sriracha chilli sauce
• 4 large gherkins
• 1 white onion
• 100g flour (plus extra for dusting)
• Sparkling Water
• 1 tsp smoked paprika
• Salt to taste
• Pepper to taste
• Vegetable Oil, for frying
• 2 little gem lettuce
• 2 lemons
• 4 brioche burger buns
• 25g salted butter
Warning: don’t share this recipe with Plankton, because he’ll steal it! Inspired by The Krusty Crab’s Special, this tantalising burger will submerge you in an ocean of wonderful flavours, from the undeniably delectable salmon and prawn to the delicious special sauce.

Bruce Bogtrotters Chocolate Cake

Serves 8 – 12
Ingredients
• 250g self-raising flour
• 250g muscovado sugar
• 5 eggs
• 250g unsalted butter
• 250g 75% dark chocolate
• 125g cocoa powder
• 1 tsp salt
• 250g dark chocolate
• 200g icing sugar
• 200g unsalted butter
• 100g bar / piece dark chocolate
The Bruce Bogtrotter Matilda cake scene is arguably one of the best scenes in the British Movie collection. The cake looks so delicious but there’s so much of it – will he finish, or will be he be punished by the Trunchbull? Luckily, Thomas’ rendition of the classic cake is just as delicious, but you can eat it at your own pace, and as much or as little as you like!
