Well the Queen certainly is very brave. She's going to let a public opinion poll decides what she eats for her 80th birthday.

I'm not sure this is a good idea.

Queen to get a Taste of Public Opinion
Being the Queen of England brings with it many benefits, not the least of which is being able to have a top chef cook you the meal of your choice whenever you want. It seems Her Majesty will be submitting to the will of her subjects when she celebrates her 80th birthday on June 15, however..............

Photos from HELLO magazine
#1: Although details of the lunch are yet to be announced, the monarch is no stranger to lavish banquets, and the June 15 official birthday bash is likely to be appropriately impressive
#2: This year the Queen will enjoy a populist element to her birthday festivities, with TV viewers choosing the dishes for her celebratory lunch

Well let us hope and pray that the public who ring in are not all from Wigan or else the Queen will be sitting down to Egg, Chips and a bottle of Brown Ale.

Which would be an interesting sight, though... One brave Queen, indeed! :)

Queen : Alexandra dear, pass the brown sauce
Alexandra : Sorry Lillibet
Anne : These baked beans really are delightful
Queen : Yes, aren't they. Mr Heinz should really be complimented
Charles : Are these chips organic?
Camilla : No darling. Now pass me some bread to mop up this juice

I hope they will all be dishes that compliment one another. Imagine if they vote for jellied eels!

Jellied eels are disgusting. I had some when I visited the East End when I was a child. I nearly threw up. You english have some weird food. I dont know how I feel about this. I kinda feel like the royals are becoming a realtiy show and then I think its cool that the public is deciding. Im unsure about it.

English food is often criticised but we have some truly wonderful food. Jellied Eels are revolting and an acquired taste. But Pie and Mash, Fish and Chips and a Sunday Roast are all traditional meals that people eat often. What most people don't know is that the liquor served with Pie and Mash is made from eel juice.

But we have some brilliant creations with game and our puddings are to die for. I love all kinds of food but for me, you can't beat a typical Sunday Roast and it's said that the Queen loves a Roast too.

I don't know anyone who has eaten Jellied Eels, I have never been able to force myself to try them It's not just the English who have weird food. How about Scottish Haggis (sheeps stomach, stuffed with it's liver, heart & lungs), Black Pudding (Boiled Pigs blood with thickeners stuffed into part of it's intestine). Not my idea of a wonderful meal.
The royals new advisors seem to have lost the plot. I think you are right Princejohnny25 when you say they are becoming like one of these reality shows. In my opinion if they lose all of their mystic, the next step will be to 'retire' them.

I don't think every region uses Eel juice!

I think the East End stick with the tradition of using eel juice. And to be honest, Pie and Mash is only any good when eaten in the East End.

Depending on the way it's served, it really doesn't appear all that different to meat loaf. (Keeping in mind that sausages are also ground-up animal organs and meat stuffed into it's intestine, or a product of it). I have some rather good haggis, to me the worst thing is the name..

I read somewhere that the Queen Mother used to enjoy fish and chips bought from outside Buckingham Palace, so maybe the Queen wouldn't mind that. It doesn't sound like she's a great one for exotic foods (shellfish and probably those yummy jellied eels).

We have a restaurant which is supposed to serve British food, and it hasn't been bad IMO. I've enjoyed the pasties and "bangers and mash".

Cornish Pasties are lovely. Melton Mowbray pork pies too are to die for. The Queen has bangers and mash often apparantly and she loves cottage pie.

In all the pictures that show the Queen's I really like how her hats go with her outfits.:)

Good try, georgiea :) . The haggis, offal and jellied eels will soon run out of puff and we'll get back on topic...

Well, from reading some of the stuff about the public choosing the menu, it's going to be a very selective list that the public gets to choose from, compiled by some of the country's top chefs. I somehow doubt that jellied eels are going to make it onto the list.
