The Durrells in Corfu + Greek salad

Watch The Durrells in Corfu at 8:00 p.m. and nosh on a fresh Greek salad! You’ll feel like you’re dining al fresco on your own Greek isle with this delicious starter — the perfect beginning to your meal. The finale promises a night of beginnings, too, with two women — and an otter! — in labor.

Keep it light in Corfu with this Greek Salad recipe

Poldark + Cornish pasties

Feast on an entrée of Cornish Pasties as the Season 3 finale episode of your favorite Cornish drama, Poldark, kicks off at 9:00 p.m.

Historically, Cornish pasties were prepared as a lunch for workers in Cornwall’s tin mines, just like the ones featured in Poldark. The edge of the pasties in those days were made much thicker — to be used as a “handle” so that the mine workers could hold the pasty with their dirty fingers, eating the pasty and throwing away the edge of the crust.

And the finale is a lot to digest. Elizabeth turns the tables on George, Rev. Whitworth is checkmated, Demelza discovers her true feelings. And, Poldark makes a vow.

Keep it authentic in Cornwall with these Cornish Pasties.

The Collection + crème brulee

End the evening with a couture hat tip to France with The Collection at 10:00 p.m. and crème brulee. This rich dessert is as magnefique — and timeless in its appeal — as the designs of Claude Sabine himself! The series finale comes with a dash of suspense, an arrest, a proposal and more.

Pair this crème brulee with Champagne or a French wine to keep the French theme going. Salute!
