About the Jubilee

In order for us all to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II magnificent 70 year reign properly, there will be a four day UK bank holiday weekend from Thursday the 2nd to Sunday the 5th of June. There will even be over 500 horses and 1000 performers taking part in the parade celebrations in London.

However, as we can’t all get to the heart of the celebrations in London, we have created some ideas to help bring the party to your residents – to make them feel part of the celebrations.

This Jubilee weekend presents a great opportunity to allow your residents to enjoy an outdoor (or indoor) tea party filled with a diverse selection of dishes, fun activities, socialising and even a chance to decorate areas within your home, Jubilee style! To help add a fun, engaging and different atmosphere we have also created a free printable activity pack – check it out here.

To ensure they are dining just like Royalty, our expert Culinary Development Chef Wayne Wright, has put together a selection of bespoke recipes to mark the occasion.

The inspiration recipes have been put together as an inspiration guide, so you can get your Care Home organised and ready for the long weekend. You can view all of our inspiration recipes here.

 

Inspiration behind our dishes

When discussing the inspiration behind the specially crafted menu, Wayne really wanted to portray a “retro and old school” array of savoury and sweets fit for the ultimate high tea.

Retro flavours and ingredients have also been combined to elevate classic recipes to give an unexpected tasting delight for your residents. The British high tea vision with a retro twist is a chance to really celebrate different foods to mirror the colourful decades since The Queen’s coronation, all the way back in 1953!

From Spam Katsu Curry to a Queens Chocolate Biscuit Cake, there is recipe inspiration for all your residents to enjoy. We have to say, some of these recipes are some real show stoppers!

To enjoy the high tea theme, the recipes have been designed to be an easy serve style and to all compliment each other for a fabulous spread.

All of the recipes have been carefully thought out to ensure we are not only catering specifically for resident’s needs, but also so they can enjoy new dishes to help create a fun, new and interesting meal times.

The meal ideas have also been tailored to ensure we are offering a great variety of foods (both in portion and flavour) as well as bringing a tea party spread fit for Royalty to really make this a memorable weekend.

We have selected 5 recipes from our Jubilee recipe inspiration guide that are guaranteed to add a Royal experience to your residents dining.
