Children to create Queen's Diamond Jubilee menu

Schools and children across the UK are being invited to think up some fantastic food dishes to be served at Buckingham Palace to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

Schools and children across the UK are being invited to think up some fantastic food dishes to be served at Buckingham Palace to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

The Duchess of Cornwall launched the British Food Fortnight competition on a visit to a school in Swindon this week.

Four winning schools will have their ideas made into canapes by royal chef Mark Flanagan and winning students will help serve them at a reception at the palace attended by the Queen and the Duchess.

The competition, which was the idea of the Duchess, has some precedent, as in 1953 coronation chicken was invented by Constance Spry and served at the Queen's Coronation lunch.

The Cook for the Queen competition is open to 10-15 year olds in all primary and secondary schools in the UK. More details will be released shortly.

British Food Fortnight is in its 11th year, and this year as a one-off it has been renamed Love British Food 2012 and moved to coincide with the Olympics.
