A Meal for every Faith

Imagine you are hosting a party for people of eight different faiths, each with their own dietary restrictions. What would you serve? That is the challenge facing England’s Royal Family as they prepare to host “an international conference to celebrate different faiths and the environment.” The faiths include Baha’ism, Christianity, Daoism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Shintoism and Sikhism.

The banquet, which you can read about at BBC.com here, will be held on Tuesday November 3. And guess what? The only type of food that everyone can eat: VEGAN. That’s right! Windsor Castle will be serving an all vegan banquet, hosted by Prince Philip and UN-Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.

Here’s what’s on the menu:

STARTER

Salad of roasted English pear, steamed celeriac and oven roasted cobnuts

Frisee leaves tossed with a hazelnut oil and lemon oil dressing

Served with a red grape reduction

Ciabatta bread served with olive oil

MAIN COURSE

Portabello mushroom stuffed with artichoke, red onion and thyme, set on pearl barley and butternut squash risotto with gremolata oil

Roasted root vegetables to include carrots, parsnips and beetroot turned with baby chard

DRINKS

Cranberry and fresh orange cocktail

Jugs of iced tap water and lemon on the tables

(No dessert due to extremely tight schedule)

 

Sounds delish!
