The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Celebrations
To mark the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign, celebrations will be taking place across the country for Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee.
In recognition of this unique occasion, Café Le Cordon Bleu’s fine patisserie has created a Cherry Jubilee Macaroon to honour the Diamond Jubilee, combining a cherry blossom buttercream with griottine cherry compote. The new creation will be available for a limited time during the Jubilee celebrations.
With a presence in London since before Queen Elizabeth’s coronation, Le Cordon Bleu can boast of an involvement with key events in the Royal Family’s history - fitting for an institute whose name derives from a Chivalric Order presented by the French Monarchy.
For the Queen’s Coronation 60 years ago, former Le Cordon Bleu Principal Rosemary Hume was asked to produce a dish for the celebratory banquet, which led to the creation of the now well established Coronation Chicken recipe. Chef Julie Walsh - Head of Patisserie - was commissioned to prepare The Queen Mother’s 100th birthday cake. She also created a 4-tier 6-foot tall masterpiece based on the wedding cake of King George VI and The Queen Mother, for Tate & Lyle’s ‘Let Them Eat Cake’ exhibition held last year.
To allow our students from 53 nationalities to enjoy the Jubilee celebrations, the institute and Café Le Cordon Bleu will be closed on Monday 4th and Tuesday 5th June for the bank holidays, reopening on Wednesday 6th.
