King Charles reportedly presented South African President Cyril Ramaphosa with a pheasant menu during the leader’s state visit.
The monarch hosted a dinner at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday evening (22.11.22) after welcoming Mr Ramaphosa to England on a visit to England with more than 1,000 soldiers, 230 horses, seven military bands and two state cars.
The menu, revealed by the Daily Mail, shows the leader is proud to savor two main dishes: wild mushrooms, truffles and a sorrel sauce, or Windsor pheasant’s ballotine with mussel, quince and port wine sauce.
The newspaper pointed out that it was a “change” from the feasts of Charles’ late mother Queen Elizabeth, as the monarch was known to favor game or lamb from one of the other royal estates, the House of Balmoral, when receiving foreign dignitaries. .
Side dishes for Charles’ first feast as king included a variety of Chantenay carrots, as well as roasted butternut squash, braised fondant potatoes and kale with salad.
For dessert, according to the menu provided by Maile, vanilla parfait with caramelized apples or coffee and small desserts was served.
Accompanying it are Chateau Feuillet-Glinet, Pomerol 2000 and English Ridgeview Blanc de Blancs 2016 sparkling wine, £50 a bottle.
The outlet noted a Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru £77, Morgeot, Clos de la Chapelle, Domaine Duc de Magenta 2014 £61 and a bottle of Château Rieussec 1er Grand Cru Classé Sauternes 2007 £5. Other options.
Videos posted on the royal family’s official Instagram showed painstaking preparations in the kitchen ahead of the party.
In particular, we saw chefs create protea, South Africa’s national flower, from sugar and edible dyes.
The Mail reported that the venue’s settings were measured to be exactly 45 centimeters apart, and more than a thousand glasses are typically used at such an event.
