Jubilee Food Ideas - Celebrate in Style

Celebrate This Momentous Occasion with the Ultimate Jubilee Food Ideas!

With the extended bank holiday weekend approaching, there are plenty of opportunities to celebrate with family and friends. Communities all over the United Kingdom can come together to celebrate the exciting and historic milestone of The Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

On the 6th February 2022, The Queen became the first-ever British Monarch to reach a Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years of service to the British public.

An extra bank holiday was announced in 2020, and with the date fast approaching, many people are making plans to acknowledge, commemorate and celebrate this momentous occasion.

Of course, one thing that always brings people together is excellent food. Sitting down and breaking bread with others is a fantastic way to spend time with one another, share stories, and even make new friends.

The four days of celebration will take place from the 2nd to the 5th of June, and there will be plenty of public and community events and televised reflections, looking back at all the Queen has done over the past 70 years.

So whether you are organising a bustling street party in your local community or staying in to enjoy some quality time with your nearest and dearest, why not consider throwing some incredible food into the mix to celebrate?

Our Favourite Jubilee Food Ideas - What Will You Serve?

Coronation Chicken

Coronation chicken is otherwise known as 'Poulet Reine Elizabeth.' It is an ideal dish to serve at any royal-themed celebration; it is believed to be a descendent of the 'Jubilee Chicken', served to George V on his Silver Jubilee in 1935. Coronation chicken is a fantastic dish, traditionally presented cold, so great for street parties and picnics. Its succulent chunks of chicken tossed in a fruity, spicy mayonnaise-based sauce will go down a treat with old and young alike!

A traditional Roast

There is nothing quite as delightful as a full traditional British Roast. So why not get your roasting trays out and cook up something the whole family can tuck into? Make sure you do yours with all the trimmings such as roast parsnips, juicy greens, Yorkshire puds, crispy roast potatoes, stuffing, and lashings of steaming gravy.

Scones and Cream

However you like to eat them (we're not here to start a debate), scones, jam and cream are a match made in heaven and a typically English treat. Freshly baked, fruit-laden scones are easy to bake and delightful to eat. Serve as part of a lavish cream tea or simply enjoy as they come!

Fish & Chips

Fish and Chips are another fantastically British dish. The combination of flaky fish in crisp batter, hot salty chips, and plenty of vinegar can't be faulted. Popular since the mid-19th Century, if you want to sit down to a hearty, filling meal, fish and chips could be a great bet. Brownie points if you serve it alongside a big pile of mushy peas too!

Cheese Platters

Cheese and biscuits are perfect snacking food, the ideal end-of-meal treat, or can be served as part of a lunch. They are easy to pack up and transport to street parties, parks, or wherever else takes your fancy. So source some delicious, tangy, crumbly, smooth, and smelly varieties to enjoy wherever you are.

Crustless finger sandwiches

A crustless cucumber sandwich is quintessentially British and the ideal accompaniment to an afternoon tea. If you want to serve finger food, this simple yet delicious sandwich must surely make an appearance.

Cake, Cake, Cake!

A celebration isn't a celebration without cake! On the Jubilee bank holiday weekend, serving a delicious cake is sure to be well-received, whether it's mid-morning with a good cuppa or as an after-dinner sweet treat. What better cake to enjoy to celebrate Her Majesty than a classic Victoria sponge, with light, fluffy layers of cake, whipped cream, and sweet, sticky strawberry jam in between.
