Create A Recipe Fit For A Queen and Win !

Yes, I know - this may just be a thinly veiled excuse for posting another picture of the yummy James Martin on my blog but you did all like the mushroom recipes I posted before and I know a lot of you like getting experimental in the kitchen so good luck if you enter !


Cooking fanatics, aspiring chefs and foodies are invited to create a mushroom inspired dish, in celebration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee - ‘Jubilee Mushrooms’.

The competition, launched on Thursday 15 March, will be hosted on the More To Mushrooms Facebook Page, where entrants can submit their specially created recipe, to be judged by Celebrity Chef, James Martin.

In addition to having their recipe crowned as the Mushroom Bureau’s official ‘Jubilee Mushroom’ dish, the winning chef will also receive a prize of £500 cash and get to meet James Martin himself.

Following in suite of Coronation Chicken - which was created especially for Queen Elizabeth II’s Coronation Banquet in 1953 - the ‘Jubilee Mushroom’ competition will produce a recipe for the 2012 Jubilee celebrations, using one of Britain’s most loved and home grown ingredients – the mushroom.

Champion for cooking with home-grown British produce, James Martin has written an array of books based around Great British recipes and so comments:

“I love the idea of creating ‘Jubilee Mushrooms’.  The mushroom is a British favourite, so what better ingredient to commemorate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee?

“I’m looking forward to judging the recipes and seeing what creations people come up with.”

The second and third runners up will also be awarded cash prizes of £200 or £100. The winner will meet James Martin on Tuesday 15 May 2012 in Central London, where they will also be presented with their £500 prize.

Entries for the ‘Mushroom Jubilee’ competition can be made between 15 March and 6 May 2012, by uploading the detailed recipe and an image of the competed dish, onto The winning recipe will be announced on Friday 11th May.
