A Royal Affaire | Summer Wedding Menu Inspiration from The Queen of England

We are thrilled to have been privy to some inside Royal Catering News from the Executive Chef to Prince Charles, Princess Diana and the Royal Family for over 10 years, Carolyn Robb.

Her Majesty the Queen of England is celebrating her Diamond Jubilee and along with the Olympics being held in England in June, Ms. Robb has created a Royal gourmet celebration luncheon perfect for summer weddings.  We were inspired and thought we’d share!


“I have created this menu in celebration of the Diamond Jubilee and other festivities in Britain this summer. It showcases the very best of British ingredients. The dishes are my contemporary interpretations of ‘Royal favorites’ from my wonderful thirteen years as a royal chef. During this time I had the privilege of cooking for every member of the British Royal Family and I catered for many special royal events.”  – Carolyn Robb
