Carden Park Executive Head Chef Graham Tinsley MBE is once again preparing cakes for Princes and Princesses as part of the impending Royal Wedding celebrations between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle this Saturday 19th May.
With these special treats being part of an exclusively designed Royal themed afternoon tea, Graham will be combining the best cakes from both sides of the Atlantic within a sophisticated three tiers of British American indulgence. All with the picture-perfect view of 1,000 acres of lush, green countryside from the hotel’s brand new outdoor terrace.
The Welsh Culinary Team were honoured to be asked to make a 4-tier wedding cake for William and Kate. Over 300 hours was spent on the four-foot tall masterpiece. As the Team Captain Graham and the team said this was one the team’s highlights of the year. The Welsh team are often asked to cook for the Royal family and the Welsh government on a regular basis and as Prince Charles is the team patron it makes these occasions very special.
This time however, he is offering visitors the chance to combine classic British sweet treats with exciting American stars and stripes desserts like New York Cheesecake, Chocolate Brownies and Key Lime Pie. With America being the home of cheeseburgers, hot dogs and nachos, Cheshire Life Food and Drink Awards Chef of the Year Graham, who began his career in catering at the Midland Hotel in Manchester under the guidance of renowned Chef Gilbert Lefevre, plans to recreate for guests a fun filled savoury alternative to a British afternoon tea.
Guests can enjoy their American afternoon tea with US beers like Brooklyn and Samuel Adams or even a Jack Daniels or a Manhattan cocktail? A sure-fire way to sparkle like Markle in time for the royal wedding.
With other talented chefs at the helm alongside Graham, including British and International Escoffer winner Dion Jones and recently awarded Welsh Young Chef of the Year Aaron Tye, who better to trust for dainty delicacies on the special day in British American history than those at #teamcarden?
