The royal wedding seems to be all anyone is talking about these days. And amongst the various viewing parties throughout the city, we chose to spend our time at Kelloggs NYC, where former royal family chef, Chef Darren McGrady, curated a cereal-forward menu inspired by none other than the nuptials themselves.
Chef McGrady drew upon what he knew about the family’s tastes, including a basic cereal bowl made with the Queen’s favorite cereal, Special K, and a few additions like peaches, toasted walnuts and chocolate sauce, aptly titled ‘Special Krown’. Other menu items included a cake inspired by their wedding cake, Lemon Luster Wedding Cake, made with Raisin Bran, Lemon Elderflower Cream Cheese, Gold Leaf and Edible Flower.
Other Menu Items included:
‘Bars of Gold’, made with Corn Flakes, English Flapjacks, Turmeric, and Sunflower Seeds
‘Majestic Pops’, made with Caramel Banana Cake Push Pops and Froot Loops in the frosting
‘Imperial Pudding’, made with Chocolate and Banana Pudding with Frosted Mini Wheats
‘Stately Scones’, made with Frosted Flake Infused Scones with Strawberries, Basil and Froot Loop Cream
‘Krispy Gems’, aka Scotch Eggs coated with sausage and bacon
Rounding out the menu were drinks to wash everything down. In addition to imperially presented proper English tea and coffee options, was a make your own mimosa station. We had the option to add OJ, Grapefruit or Peach juice, and top with berries of your choice. There were also two different cereal-infused tea options, including Frosted Flakes Rose Pouchong and Raisin Bran Lemon Elderflower. We tried the latter and it was surprisingly delicious.
But the event was not all food and view-centric however. Sitting at the rounded tables, kind of felt like we were at the palace ourselves, with elaborately decorated tables, beautiful centerpieces and dazzling place-settings.
Kellogg’s also had activities to occupy our time while we waited for the ceremony to being and for the food to come out. Kelly Dempsey of Project Runway was happily helping those interested in making their own Brit-inspired hats aka fascinators.
All-in-all, the event was pretty damn impressive, and the added perk was that we could find the recipes online (and we definitely plan to make at least a few ourselves). Check them out here!
