Cook for the Queen

Cook for the Queen

“Design a menu fit for The Queen that celebrates the food produced in your part of the country.” Love British Food

A cooking competition launched by The Duchess of Cornwall to celebrate The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in partnership with the Diamond Jubilee British Food Fortnight.

Open to school children between the ages of 10 and 15 from primary and secondary schools across the UK.

Four winning schools will be asked to take their menus to Buckingham Palace, where Royal Chefs will prepare the food, to be served by pupils from the winning schools, at a special Diamond Jubilee reception in June 2012.

The menu must be ‘fit for The Queen’ and must celebrate food from the region where the school is located.

Menus should include a mix of sweet and savoury dishes which are easy to produce as canapés.

Only one entry per school will be permitted.

Closing date for entries is Monday 30 April 2012.

Winning entries will be announced in May 2012.

2012 Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Website will be closely following the ‘Cook for the Queen’ competition – watch this space for further details about the Reception and any new Royal dishes on the menu!
