Heston Blumenthal Hosts Picnic At Buckingham Palace



Heston Blumenthal Hosts Picnic At Buckingham Palace
Jubilee Picnic
The celebrity chef designed the 5 course picnic hamper for 12,000 guests for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

Produced by Waitrose and personally tasted by the Queen, guests began with a chilled country garden soup comprised of baby plum tomatoes and a mint-infused oil, followed by Lapsang Souchong tea-smoked Scottish salmon and Diamond Jubilee chicken. It was followed by a Sandringham Strawberry Crumble Crunch with fruit from the Queen’s own estate, meringue, cream and an oat-crumble topping as well as tiny chocolate cakes featuring gold crowns and topped with popping candy, lemon and caraway madeira cake and a cheeseboard.

Of the guests invited, 10,000 were ballot winners and a further 2,000 were from charities associated with the Royal Family.
