The first round of judging has taken place in ‘Cook for the Queen’, Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall’s competition inviting schools to create a special menu for The Queen in celebration of her Diamond Jubilee. Sixteen schools have been selected from over two hundred entries to go through to the next round where their menus will be judged by Mark Flanagan, Royal Chef at Buckingham Palace. The top four winning schools will be invited to Buckingham Palace in June to see their recipes prepared by the Royal Chef and will help serve them at a special reception attended by The Queen and The Duchess of Cornwall.
‘Cook for The Queen’ is the idea of The Duchess of Cornwall and is her special tribute to The Queen for the Diamond Jubilee. As part of British Food Fortnight, the national celebration of food that The Duchess supports, schools across the country have been invited to create a special menu for The Queen that celebrates the food produced in their part of the country.
Two hundred and eight schools entered from across the UK and the competition has inspired a huge variety of activities, many running throughout the spring term.
