The best food and drink to celebrate King Charles III’s Coronation
To commemorate King Charles III’s accession to the throne, we’ve put together the ultimate list of foodie treats, from delicious street party eats to sensational celebration tipples
Luscombe Rose & Cherry Bubbly, £26.50 for 12x27cl bottles
Raise a toast to the Coronation of King Charles III with Luscombe’s special limited edition Rose & Cherry Bubbly. A magnificent non-alcoholic fizz, it’s a sparkling blend of organic rose and cherries, naturally sweetened with muscat grape and finished with Sicilian lemons and soft Devon spring water. Awarded a Royal Warrant in 2021, in recognition of their products which are enjoyed by the Royal Households, Luscombe took inspiration from the rose featured in the coronation emblem when crafting the drink.
Dickinson & Morris Coronation Pie, £25
Artisan pork pie purveyors Dickinson & Morris have joined forces with pastry maestro Calum Franklin – executive chef at Holborn Dining Room’s famous Pie Room – to create a real showstopper for the Coronation. The extra special pie takes inspiration from the King’s love of British game and includes outdoor-bred British pork with succulent pheasant, warming chestnut and madeira jelly, finished by hand with intricate, royal-themed pastry.
Copas Coronation Cockerel, from £40
Looking for a feast fit for a King to celebrate the coronation? Hailing from Royal Berkshire, Premium poultry producer, Copas has reared a limited number of cockerels for the occasion – delicious paired with their Artisan Coronation Sauce – a fitting tribute to King Charles III.
Slow-reared for the best flavour, the cockerels are fed a natural diet of maize and omega-rich corn and roam meadows for a truly free-range life.
Bigger than regular chickens, these birds are given longer to grow, resulting in succulent meat with a rich and gamey flavour. The birds weigh around 3kg each which means they’ll feed at least 6 hungry adults. For an authentic Coronation Chicken dish, mix one jar of Copas Artisan Coronation Sauce with an equal part of mayonnaise and stir through the cooked chicken.
HECK Coronation Chicken Sausages, £3.20
With the nation gearing up for the coronation of King Charles III in May and street parties and BBQs being planned up and down the country, HECK has created a majestic recipe to mark the occasion and grace the BBQ grill.
The Yorkshire sausage maker’s own take on the coronation chicken classic marries lean British chicken with mild curry spice, seasoning and raisins in the limited edition, gluten-free and dairy-free recipe that’s on sale at Tesco from 26 April - 16 May, all wrapped up in a suitably regal sausage sleeve embellished with a bejewelled crown.
Tyrrells Coronation Chicken, £2.75
Elevate your royal soirée’s this bank holiday, with Tyrrells Coronation Chicken hand-cooked English crisps (150g, RRP £2.75). Launching exclusively for the Coronation, you had better be swift if you want to experience this limited-edition flavour!
