THE King and Queen Consort Camilla have helped to create a special Coronation quiche.
The royal vegetarian tart, dubbed “Quiche Lorreign”, was cooked up for street parties for Charles and Camilla’s crowning next month.
Unveiled by Buckingham Palace yesterday, its ingredients include spinach, broad beans, Cheddar cheese and tarragon.
The royal couple collaborated with palace chefs on the recipe.
It is hoped the dish will become as popular as Coronation chicken, which was developed for Queen Elizabeth II in 1953.
King Charles’ butcher has also crafted a new banger for the occasion.
It is made of Scottish pork, Victoria plum — a nod to the former Queen — and ginger.
Barry Florence, of HM Sheridan at Ballater, is sending a packet to nearby Balmoral — where Charles and Camilla are this week — for a taste test.
Barry said of his Coronation sausage: “We involved about half-a-dozen staff from all the generations and got lots of different ideas.
“We will send some up to His Majesty for him to try.
“We usually get an acknowledgement. We hope he likes it.”
Senior royals — including the newly crowned King and Queen plus Kate and William — are expected to take part in communities’ Coronation Big Lunches.
Meanwhile, preparations took place in London yesterday ahead of the ceremony.
