Her Majesty's table is served all year round with dishes from the best chefs in the world (see also: "The Royal Menu: The Eating Habits of Elizabeth II"). But from time to time, Elizabeth II does not mind taking a break from gourmet food. As the former pilot of the monarch said, in the past, during long flights, the Queen literally enjoyed quite simple and budget cakes.
Former Her Majesty's pilot Graham Laurie spoke in a new Channel 5 documentary about some of the habits of BCS members in the 90s. According to the man, the usual pies served on long-haul flights were quite to the taste of the Windsors. “You know, they liked it. I think it was a great variety after all the delicious food served to first class passengers."
Laurie did not specify which cake the Queen liked, but observers believe that it is about The Fray Bentos baked goods: steak and kidney pies, chopped beef and onions, as well as chicken and bacon.
Earlier, royal biographers have repeatedly emphasized: Her Majesty is a great gourmet, unlike her husband, who is rather unpretentious in food. However, it was recently revealed that during a traditional summer vacation in Balmoral, the Queen also allows herself to take a break from the usual menu (see also: “How a vacation in Scotland changes the eating habits of Elizabeth II”). According to insiders, she loves Fish and Chips - fried fish and fries - an unofficial national English dish. "The Queen doesn't often allow herself fish and chips, but she usually does when she's on holiday in Balmoral."
