Coronation Quiche Is King Charles and Queen Camilla's Signature Dish for Their Crowning Celebration—Here's How to Make It

The dish will be served during the Coronation Big Lunch, a traditional royal event that brings communities together to mark the momentous occasion.

King Charles and Queen Camilla have given us a first official glimpse into the menu for their coronation, which will take place in just over two weeks. The dish, personally chosen by the royal duo, comes with a fitting title (pun intended): coronation quiche.

On Monday, Buckingham Palace shared the recipe on its website, along with a step-by-step video of a palace chef preparing the meatless dish packed with spring vegetables. The special quiche will be served during the Coronation Big Lunch, which is part of the weekend's festivities taking place from May 6 to May 8. The lunch is a tradition that brings neighbors and communities together to celebrate the coronation and share friendship, food, and fun, according to Buckingham Palace's website.

King Charles and Queen Camilla also took to their social media channels to share the delicious news. "Introducing… Coronation Quiche! Chosen personally by Their Majesties, The King and The Queen Consort have shared a recipe in celebration of the upcoming #CoronationBigLunch taking place up and down the country," the Royal Family tweeted.

Want to celebrate the coronation by recreating the royal brunch dish? The recipe for this vegetable quiche starts with homemade or store-bought pastry dough; press it into a tin and blind bake it for 15 minutes. The golden crust is then filled with cheddar cheese, spinach, broad beans (more commonly called fava beans in the United States), and fresh tarragon and finished off with a mixture of milk, cream, eggs, and seasoning. Bake until golden brown. "Eat hot or cold with a green salad and boiled new potatoes—perfect for a Coronation Big Lunch," the royal website states.
