A spectacular 300 dish dessert banquet believed to have been served to Queen Elizabeth over 400 years ago has been recreated.
Bosses at Kenilworth Castle decided to reproduce the £foodfest", originally served at the castle by Sir Robert Dudley in 1575, as part of their summer celebrations.
The meal took 700 man hours to research and create in authentic detail and was presented on a massive banquet table dressed with towering sugar sculptures. It was then served to members of the public.
I do not understand the mentality of doing this now, when everyone is supposed to be cutting back and tightening their belts. Sorry, but the timing on this questionable attempt at publicity sucks.
