Prince Charles to host final of TV cookery programmeMarch 22nd, 2010 - 4:20 pm ICT by ANI
London, Mar 22 (ANI: Prince Charles will be hosting the final of a TV cookery contest.
And accompanying the Royal on BBC2’s Great British Menu, who has been a passionate advocate of locally produced food, will be the Duchess of Cornwall.
The final banquet will be screened in a special one-hour show in June and will be the climax of the series in which chefs are being challenged to source ingredients from farms and estates near an historic property in their region.
The Prince is not the first royal to become involved in the programme-in 2006, the Great British Menu prepared food for the Queen at her 80th birthday banquet.
“We are delighted that the Prince of Wales has agreed to host this year’s Great British Menu banquet,” the Daily Express quoted Liam Keelan, controller of BBC Daytime, as saying.
“As a strong advocate of farming and of local and organic food, his involvement will help make it a very special occasion,” he added. (ANI)
