The official recipe was developed by Royal Chef Mark Flanagan in close collaboration with the King and Queen Consort at Buckingham Palace. As the head of royal meals since 2002, Mr. Flanagan created the quiche with the intention of inspiring people to make and serve it at the ‘Big Lunches’ during the Coronation weekend of May 6-8, celebrated in communities across the country.
Quiche was specifically chosen for its versatility as a ‘sharing’ dish that can be served hot or cold at street parties. It also caters to various dietary requirements and preferences, and is known for being relatively simple to make without requiring expensive or hard-to-find ingredients.
The Royal Family’s website described it 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 a green salad and boiled new potatoes – perfect for a Coronation Big Lunch!’
