CORD by Le Cordon Bleu has unveiled a selection of celebratory dishes to mark the Coronation of King Charles III starring the classic Coronation Chicken recipe, created by Le Cordon Bleu in 1953.

Le Cordon Bleu have served the Royal Family for years, including at the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. The star of the Coronation Day Banquet, “Poulet Reine Elizabeth”, now widely known at Coronation Chicken, was created by Le Cordon Bleu London and is now a nationwide favourite.

Located in the heart of the City of London, CORD by Le Cordon Bleu will honour the original Coronation Chicken recipe and serve a selection of dishes from 2nd to 5th of May.

CORD Café will serve a gourmet Coronation Chicken Bun comprised of the signature curried chicken breast recipe with a second layer of lettuce, cucumber and baby watercress sandwiched between thick slices of brioche.

This will sit alongside a Fruit Tart made with pistachio pastry with a pistachio financier, rhubarb, compote, strawberry mousse, finished off with a wild strawberry glaze, a rhubarb cremeux insert and complete with a delicate golden crown lace.

Both dishes can be enjoyed in CORD by Cordon Bleu Café and Le Cordon Café located in Bloomsbury Culinary Institute in Holborn or, ordered to take away for the ultimate picnic in honour of the Coronation.
