The Royal Menu

By Lwblog @londonwalks
The Royal MenuIn a recent poll taken during the Royal Tour of Canada, 50% of Canadians said they were all for the monarchy.
Were we to take such a poll about Foodie Guide Ann Jones, we think she’d come out roughly twice as popular. Here she is…
“That’s enough about the dresses. What did the Duchess of Cambridge eat when she and the Duke visited Canada and California?
In Ottawa they went to a Celebration of Youth barbecue - but forget the burgers and sausages. On the menu were two dishes from the Arctic – kelp (seaweed from Nunavut) and Arctic char caviar from Yukon.
Then there was ‘dzo’ from Alberta- a cross between Tibetan yak and Black Angus cow, raised at Springridge Ranch. According to Springridge it’s ‘low in cholesterol and very yummy’. This was served as yak tartare in potato nests, each nest topped with a lightly cooked Outaouias quail egg from Western Quebec.
Apparently cross bred yak have been raised in Canada for the last century – you can find out more about this from The Green Bay Yakkers website. If you’re planning a North American holiday, you can order yak from Horizon Meats in Calgary – ‘your Olde Fashioned Retail butcher Shoppe’.
Another option was Sylvan Star cheese (Gouda from Alberta) - shredded, baked, crumbled into ‘cracklings’, and served on ox musk prosciutto, placed on a cube of herbed jelly. Ox musk? I think this should be muskox. The muskox lives in the Arctic, and supplied the ‘Eskimo style prosciutto’, otherwise known as Mipkuzola.
For dessert, Niagara Peninsula sun-dried sour cherry and white chocolate cheesecake lollipops and fresh Quebec strawberries.
Food was never like this when I lived in Canada....”
Ann’s Foodies London Walk is on Saturday 16th July meeting at 10.45a.m at Green park tube (Park Exit).
