A coronation feast
The coronation of King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla is just around the corner on May 6. And such a historic occasion calls for an extra-special menu item, as is tradition. Following in the footsteps of the monarchy’s favourite Coronation Chicken and Platinum Pudding, the royal family announced a new coronation meal this week. Read on to learn everything we know about this new delectable dish!
What is the coronation dish for King Charles?
King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla’s coronation dish is called Coronation Quiche. It features a seasonal mix of fresh spinach, tarragon and fava beans, encased in homemade pastry dough. The inner filling also uses a generous helping of grated Cheddar cheese to add some luxurious richness. While the dish is not technically vegetarian (the pastry uses lard), it could easily be made so to accommodate more diners.
How will the coronation dish for King Charles be served?
According to the royal family’s official website, Coronation Quiche is best enjoyed “hot or cold with a green salad and boiled new potatoes.” The dish will be unveiled worldwide, throughout the United Kingdom and its colonies, at community street parties known as Coronation “Big Lunches.” These lunches will occur during Coronation Weekend and are part of Queen Consort Camilla’s Big Lunch Initiative.
