This week, we hope you’ll join us as we take a taste tour around the United Kingdom with TRH The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall.
Prince Charles and Camilla are taking a look back at some of their visits across the country, featuring all things food. They may even share a recipe or two along the way.
To whet your appetite, here are some fun facts about The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall and their love of food…
– The Duchess of Cornwall revealed that her husband loves cheese, “He loves local cheeses. He’s a huge cheese fan. Anything to do with cheese, he’ll love.” She went on, saying, “And eggs, with a bed of local vegetables — he’d love that…You’d definitely see a smile.”
– Inspired by the Greek classic moussaka, Prince Charles, who enjoys cooking with grouse, has replaced the lamb with the game bird and called the culinary creation “Groussaka.”
– One of Prince Charles’ favorite dishes is pheasant crumble pie.
– According to Tom Parker-Bowles, Camilla’s son, his mother is a huge fan of scrambled eggs. Clarence House has also shared one of Prince Charles’ favourite brunch recipes – cheesy baked eggs.
– The Prince of Wales has admitted that he skips lunch most days and takes his Darjeeling tea with a splash of milk and honey.
– Former royal chef, Carolyn Robb, commented on the eating habits of Prince Charles and Camilla: “They were always very thrifty and economical. If we made roasted lamb and there were leftovers, we’d probably go and make shepherd’s pie the next night.”
