Coronation Quiche recipe and where to buy: Supermarket offerings from Asda to Waitrose
and live on Freeview channel 276
This weekend marks King Charles’ coronation, with the official celebratory dish for the occasion having already been confirmed as a quiche. In honour of the chosen food, we’ve had a look at the different quiche offerings across supermarkets.
The classic savoury pastry dish was selected as the official food of King Charles’ coronation last month (April). At the time, on the Royal Family Twitter account, it was revealed that a quiche had been chosen "personally" by The King and The Queen Consort.
A royal recipe was also released, which invited Brits up and down the country to try and make the dish for themselves. However, if you don’t fancy making one from scratch, you can always buy a pre-made offering.
Luckily, many supermarkets have their own quiches on offer to customers. From Asda to Waitrose, the groceries retailers have a selection of off-the-shelf options.
We break down where you can find a quiche for your coronation celebrations this weekend.
