Queen Elizabeth II's Top 10 Favorite Foods and Drinks

On September 8, Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain died at her Scottish residence at Balmoral. She was on the throne no less than 70 years. However, the Queen was famous not only for the incredibly long reign, but also for her enviable conservatism. Including in food. Although sometimes she allowed herself something special. 

The Queen of Great Britain's favorite foods and drinks

Chocolate

Elizabeth II was difficult to call a foodie or a gourmand. She was used to eating simple food, traditional for Britain, and rarely agreed to try anything new. Of all the sweets, chocolate was the Queen's favorite. It was added to all the desserts that happened to be on Her Majesty's personal menu. For example, the Queen was often served a chocolate cake with her afternoon tea.

 

Earl Grey Tea

In Britain as a whole, and even today, there's hardly a person who loves black tea more than the Queen. All tea-drinking British traditions were scrupulously observed at the palace. Every day Elizabeth II began with a strong brew - Twinnings Earl Grey, to be precise. Of course, with milk and no sugar.

Elizabeth II always served milk to her tea, but the queen did not add sugar to her tea.

 

Burger

As her personal chef once said, the Queen liked burgers best of all in American cuisine. True, for her it was served without buns and with cranberry sauce instead of ketchup. And it was absolutely impossible to imagine Elizabeth II eating a hamburger with her hands - only with a knife and fork.

 

Smoked Salmon Scramble

Whenever Elizabeth II was in a particularly good mood, she asked for an omelette scramble with smoked salmon for breakfast. We approve of this choice: it is necessary to start the day with a hearty dish with plenty of proteins and polyunsaturated fats. Perfect fuel for the body.

Salmon scramble can be accompanied by avocado toast. The queen didn't eat breakfast this way, but you can

The British queen was always concerned about her health. But sometimes she did allow herself a glass of her favourite drink - usually a Dubonnet gin and aperitif-based cocktail. It was served to Elizabeth II with dinner, so that she could relax a little after a hard day

Gin

The British queen was always concerned about her health. But sometimes she did allow herself a glass of her favourite drink - usually a Dubonnet gin and aperitif-based cocktail. She would have it with dinner, to unwind after a long day.

 

 

Halibut

Cooked in a certain way, of course. If Elizabeth II ordered her favorite fish, it was served on a bed of young spinach and zucchini. Crowning the dish was the French Mornet sauce based on béchamel.

 

Gaelic Steak.

This Scottish recipe was also one of the special ones in the arsenal of royal chefs. Elizabeth II preferred low-calorie food, mostly vegetables and fish. But those close to her know how much she loved meat, particularly Gaelic steak, a Scottish beef tenderloin. It requires onions, garlic, heavy cream, mushrooms, chicken broth, toasted pasta and some whiskey. It's delicious, but it's better to eat it less often.

Even the British queen loved a piece of good meat

 

Muesli and fruit

When she had no time for a thorough breakfast, Elizabeth II was served a regular granola bar, which could be found at any supermarket. For example, the popular Kellogg's brand. The only condition was that the wholemeal breakfast had to be accompanied by fruit: say, peaches and strawberries.

 

Fish pâté

As an appetizer, the queen was served a pâté made of smoked salmon, trout and mackerel. In season, red fish were caught right at Elizabeth II Balmoral's Scottish residence. It was always a personal request of Her Majesty, as she valued local produce.

 

Champagne

Gin was Elizabeth II's favorite drink for quiet family evenings. And during receptions, she preferred champagne in a tall, thin glass. Which looked exquisite in white gloves.
