Our Mark Delivers A Right Royal Dish

Committee member and local community chef Mark Borrell had the honour of being invited to cook a dish for the Queen's lunch at Drapers' Academy last Friday.

Mark who is involved in our Harold Hill Festival and runs a cookery club at Broadford Primary School was delighted to be invited by Drapers' Academy to cook for the Queen. Along with his twin brother David and half a dozen local chefs (including 3 students from Havering College) he prepared the food for Her Majesty.

Mark said of being asked to cook for the Queen that 'it was perhaps one of the challenging things I had done, well worth every single minute and long hours though'

The menu was:

Starters: Hamhock terrine with baby plum tomatoes and relish and basil dressing.

Main course: Cannon of lamb served with dauphinoise potatoes and buttered spinach and beetroot puree.

Dessert: Roasted rhubarb and ginger crème brûlée with tuile biscuit.

Credit should be given to everyone who helped out on the day who helped serve up the food and helped to make it such a memorable lunchtime.
