Duchess of Cornwall Set To Make Surprise Appearance At Special Platinum Jubilee Event

The winning dish will be
revealed in BBC’s The Jubilee Pudding: 70 Years in the Baking, which is
set to air on 12 May. 

The winner will be
revealed by the Duchess of Cornwall, and the royal will be introduced by
Dame Mary Berry, one of the judges for the show. The idea for Camilla’s
involvement came from the Eden Project, which launched the Big Lunch community
initiative.

The competition was launched with
the aim of tasking UK residents aged eight and above with creating a new
pudding dedicated to the Queen.

The entrants will be narrowed
down to five finalists, and the decision will be made by five judges: Monica
Galetti, the chef-proprietor of Mere and judge on MasterChef: The
Professionals; baker Jane Dunn; baker and TV presenter Rahul Madul; pastry chef
Matt Adlard; and culinary historian and author Regula Ysewijn.

There were nearly 5,000
entrants to the competition, and they were narrowed down to the final five
through a blind taste test, with Buckingham Palace’s head chef, Mark Flanagan
playing a role.

The idea came from Fortnum
& Mason, and their executive pastry chef, Roger Pizey, and their chef
director, Sydney Aldridge, also helped with the blind tasting.

Further details about the
Queen’s Platinum Jubilee were confirmed earlier this week, including the
news of a four-act pageant marking key moments of her life.

The first act of the pageant
will begin with the bell of Westminster Abbey being peeled as they were on the
day of the Queen’s coronation before a 1,750-strong military parade will
march.

The second act will
feature 150 national treasures and will aim to highlight how British and Commonwealth
creativity and culture have evolved throughout the Queen’s reign.

The third act will be
comprised of a 12-part play highlighting key moments of the Queen’s life, as
well as her personal interests.

The finale will pay tribute to
the monarch with a gospel choir performing to the sounds of the Band of Her
Majesty’s Royal Marines. Members of the public viewing at home will be
encouraged to join in, as the finale is led by Ed Sheeran.
