A tale of two Elizabeths

From the ‘Royal Warrant’ Salmon & Caviar Bliss and Monarch’s Coronation Chicken Royale, inspired by Elizabeth II’s famous 1953 coronation dish, to the Elizabeth I Syllabub, a pastry royally adorned with a sable as a nod to the Virgin Queen’s love of these sweet confections, this symbolic spread celebrates the reigns of these two majestic monarchs.
