London’s iconic Borough Market will be creating a bustling street party feel under its Victorian arches to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee – complete with lots of regal bunting, vintage music from the last seven decades and of course – food fit for a queen.
The Market will be dressed in all its Jubilee finery with traders competing for the best decorated stall and offering a range of celebratory dishes to enjoy on site as well as produce to take home for a regal picnic, street party or BBQ over the bank holidays.
With food at the heart of the Queen’s celebrations – from the coronation banquet through to street parties around the country – Borough Market is marking this milestone by commissioning a series of seven new recipes – one from each decade of Her Majesty’s historic reign. Food historian and writer Angela Clutton has put a modern twist on classic recipes inspired by a leading food writer from each decade – ranging from the 50s’ Patience Gray through to the 80s’ Madhur Jaffrey, 00s’ Jamie Oliver and the 2010s’ Yottam Ottolenghi. The new recipes will be printed in a specially created free Jubilee newspaper available to pick up at the Market, as well as via Borough Market’s website and social channels.
