Have you got your Quiche for the Coronation?

If you don’t want to create your own, let us help! We have 4 delicious varieties which will be perfect to join in the celebrations.

Ooh la la

When Buckingham Palace announced news about the coronation quiche, some people were surprised that it’s a French-inspired dish, rather than a British classic, and that it includes broad beans, which are not in season in May, and tarragon, which is not a particularly common herb. But the royal couple are following in the footsteps of Queen Elizabeth in 1953, who also chose an unusual dish for her coronation. Coronation Chicken, which was little-known then but is now very much a British staple, was said to have been inspired by Jubilee Chicken, a dish prepared for the silver jubilee of George V in 1935.

By Royal Appointment

The coronation quiche was ‘personally chosen’ by King Charles and Queen Camilla, with the help of Royal Chef, Mark Flanagan, to mark the occasion. It’s a relatively simple recipe to follow and not too costly to make, described on the Royal family’s website as ‘a deep quiche with a crisp, light pastry case and delicate flavours of spinach, broad beans and fresh tarragon. Eat hot or cold with green salad and boiled new potatoes – perfect for a Coronation Big Lunch!’

How to Join in with the Coronation Celebrations

The recipe was published as part of the Coronation Big Lunch initiative, which Camilla has been patron of since 2013, to inspire everyone to join in with street parties up and down the country, and to encourage neighbours to get together in their communities to ‘share friendship, food and fun’ while celebrating on May 6th.


Food to Celebrate the Coronation

Get into the spirit with any one of our 4 deliciously decadent squiches – Hot Smoked Trout and Watercress, Red Onion Marmalade and Brie, Roasted Vegetable and Feta and Squiche Lorraine.  All made using nothing but the best ingredients, including organic milk and cream and locally-sourced eggs which, combined with our buttery shortcrust pastry, work beautifully and will be a treat at any street party or coronation celebration.

Our award-winning pies are also perfect for the occasion, as they too can be eaten hot or cold.
