Phil Vickery details Quinn’s “simple” lunch he had to keep a secret until her death | TV and Radio | Showbiz and TV

Celebrity chef Phil Vickery shared his stories about being behind the scenes at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday this morning. He opened up to hosts Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby about watching the chef prepare a simple lunch for the Queen in a “meticulous way”.

He explained to ITV viewers: “So we were filming in a beautiful kitchen, an original kitchen, and then a foot man came down.

“He whispered something to the chef, so we had to stop shooting for a few seconds and then he left.

Then suddenly the chef produced this beautiful loaf of bread that was absolutely perfect, smoked salmon, a cut so thin that you could read a newspaper through it, and proceeded to make some sandwiches.

“What I noticed was that he made it in two layers, and every finger was cut, even the corner of the finger was cut neatly with a very small knife.

In his book, Eating Royal Food: Recipes and Memories from the Palace Kitchen, he said that the Queen ate four meals a day, although they were four small meals.

He said afternoon tea, consisting of sandwiches and scones, was one of the Queen’s favorite things to eat.

He said, “She always had afternoon tea wherever she was in the world. We had flown to Australia and were on the royal yacht.

“It was five in the morning but for the Queen it was five in the afternoon, so my first job was making scones.”

Darren said in a YouTube video that the Queen has a fondness for bowls of Morecambe Bay shrimp on toast.

“It’s cooked and marinated in this secret spicy butter and then the queen eats it with warm toast, and when she spreads it on warm toast, the butter melts,” he said.

The Queen caught the attention of thousands of viewers when she appeared in a delightful skit alongside Paddington Bear at the jubilee festivities.

She made a marmalade sandwich from her handbag, saying she “always kept it, for later.”

This weekday morning runs at 10am on ITV.
