It’s not been possible to escape talk of The Royal Wedding this week. Whether you’ve got your house decorated in union jacks in excitement for the big day or you’re sick of hearing about it. We thought we would focus on something other than Meghan Markle and Prince Harry and instead spend some time looking at what’s been happening in the kitchen in preparation for the big event.
The kitchens at Windsor Castle are thought to be the oldest working kitchens in the country, with a history stretching back to the 14th Century and the reign of Edward III.
It has been reported that the kitchen staff at Windsor Castle have been very busy this week in preparation for the most important meal to be served on the royal grounds in 2018. Harry and Meghan have been very involved with every detail, tasting everything, and choosing classic dishes made from local seasoned produce.
Mark Flanagan is the Royal Chef who will leading the team in the kitchen on Saturday and he has said for him the actual day will be about: “the minimum amount of cooking and maximum amount of presentation time”.
