It’s a big year for London, and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee—celebrating 60 years of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign—is bringing a festive air to the streets. During the citywide celebration in early June, The Langham London will be serving up royal delicacies at its gourmet restaurant, Roux at The Landau. Executive Chef Chris King has created a menu that features dishes with a royal connection. For example, the Hereford Strawberry Queen of Puddings was originally made famous by Queen Victoria after she took a trip to Manchester, where the local citizens added meringue to their traditional custard and strawberry jam pudding, which they deemed too ordinary for a queen. The dessert was such a hit that it became a firm favorite in the royal realm.
Other dishes on the Jubilee Menu include Soft Cotswold Legbar Hen’s Egg à la Reine and Gewürztraminer Poached Var Salmon Royale. Firmly part of royal British heritage, these classics have been adapted by the chef in a contemporary style. The Jubilee menu at Roux at The Landau will be available from May 28- June 9th, with one option from each course designated “Jubilee” with a crown. Roux at The Landau is located inside The Langham, London at 1C Portland Place off Regent Street. For further information, visit www.rouxatthelandau.com.
