I'm not British neither a royalist but am curious to watch what happens at the new King's coronation ceremony. The last time this happened was 10 years before I was born, so there is historical significance even for those of us who are critical of the monarchy system or think it needs an overhaul.

Sometimes it's just interesting to watch some pomp and ceremony... and the British way always seems to work lije clockwork with all those hundreds of years ' experience.

So who's gonna be watching?

Good thing I checked my post. I almost wrote new Kong....

I will be sleeping at 5AM. I will probably watch the highlights on Youtube later in the day. I do not care either way about the Royal Family but IMHO the British do ceremony and pageantry better then anyone so to me it is worth investing some time on the coronation.

Charles will never be my King nor Camilla my Queen. I'll never forgive them for what they did to my Princess (Diana Princess Of Wales. :heart: )

I'll watch it if the TV is on, but in the hopes he gets egged or maybe assassinated :jester:

That looks so tasty I've almost forgotten my disdain of monarchy.

Almost.

Sometimes we have to let bygones be bygones don't we? We all loved Diana and were deeply shocked and saddened by her untimely death in Paris

Quote:
Coronation chicken has been knocking around, in various forms, since the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. Back then, it was designed to be served cold alongside a dressed salad of rice, green peas and pimentos.

The original coronation chicken recipe involves poaching a chicken breast and creating a creamy sauce from scratch. The process is a little lengthy, since it entails cooking onions with red wine, which must be reduced. Everything must then be cooled before passing through a sieve and combining with mayonnaise, double cream, apricot nappage (glaze), curry powder and a few other seasonings.

Phew. It’s certainly fit for celebrating a new queen, but it’s little wonder that over the years home cooks have chosen to simplify this creation. The coronation chicken sandwich recipe I am presenting today is my interpretation of this classic dish. It may not be particularly authentic but it is very tasty.

You 'ave a point.

Still, no one quite does pomp like the British....nothing gets in the way of the ponderous, clockwork precision of a British event...sometimes I almost wish to see Johnny English put in am appearance
