Royal Eats:越遠古越重口味的英國皇室盛宴

HF Crewon January 20, 2015 at 11:39 am

有沒有想過,究竟英國皇室的晚餐會是怎樣的呢?他們每天吃的都是山珍海味嗎?是不是每一餐都是要吃八道菜,歷時三小時?歷世歷代,英國皇室對「食」的要求都是十分嚴謹,筆者翻查了有關英國皇室成員飲食習慣的資料,讓我們從五代皇室成員中的晚餐發掘他們的生活態度(越遠古越精彩)!

Prince George

先從最年輕的開始吧,一般寶寶通常會吃從超級市場買回來的亨氏樽裝Baby Food,但根據為皇室服務12年的前御廚Darren McGrady,喬治王子吃的是Fresh purée,由御廚每天預備的新鮮果泥。這位皇室寵兒與一般小孩無異,都是討厭吃蔬菜,父母Kate Middleton和Prince William 要靜悄悄將蔬菜搗成泥狀混入小王子餐單才不會給喬治發現呢!

Prince William & Kate Middleton

Prince William最愛的是pizza和一種叫banana flan的香蕉餡餅。根據 Darren McGrady,威廉小時候愛pizza愛到一個程度竟然和弟弟哈利假冒媽媽戴安娜企圖瞞騙御廚給他們pizza作晚餐:

I remember one time coming back to work in the evening with plans to roast a chicken with broccoli and cabbage and potatoes for the nursery dinner for William and Harry, and there was a note on the table saying, ‘Darren, cancel the chicken and broccoli and cabbage tonight and give the boys pizza please,’ but it was written by a 7-year-old! It was the boys’ attempt to try and sway me!

—Darren McGrady, former Royal Chef

(皇室子弟果然是皇室子弟,七歲已經出口成文!)

原來全球不單止為到 Kate Middleton的衣著而瘋狂,一年前網上流傳王妃之所以能夠在產後短時間內回復苗條身材,全靠「Raw Food Diet」。這個餐單是真是假我們無從稽考,但可以肯定的是凱特愛吃大量蔬菜。

Queen Elizabeth II

伊利沙伯二世每天吃四小餐 ,晚餐通常都是吃魚或者是從桑德林漢姆宮和巴爾莫勒爾堡打獵帶回來的獵物,如野雞、鹿和三文魚。甜品方面,她最愛布丁和鮮果,尤其溫莎堡自家溫室栽種的白桃。最後,以一杯杜本內混氈酒結束當日晚餐。另外值得一提的是英女皇每天下午茶之選──Jam Pennies,一種切成銅錢般細小的紅莓果醬三明治。吃的時候,要蘸一蘸入 Earl Grey Tea。

Queen Victoria 1837-1901

現任英女皇的曾曾祖母,根據歷史學家Annie Gray,維多利亞女皇吃晚餐的時候喜歡將所有窗門打開,每餐四到六道菜,每道菜七至九種菜色。性子焦急的她最快能夠在半小時內完成七道菜。不少宮廷飯桌規矩都是維多利亞時期定立的,如非必要千萬不可以在宴會上說笑話,因為無論是冷笑話與否,女皇都會冷淡回應一句:「We are not amused」。重要的宴會上桌子會擺放精細的花卉裝飾,食物方面有蠔油鱈魚、坎伯蘭醬鴨卷和烤羊肉,甜品會有巧克力泡芙,並以一杯威士忌作結。每一道菜之間,都會有自助形式的冷熱肉盤,確保賓客不會肚子餓。

Henry VIII 1509-1547

讓我們跳到16世紀,看看英國皇室早期的晚餐。亨利八世時期的晚宴相當精彩,除了有大量的蔬菜之外,還有不少奇珍異獸──天鵝、孔雀、江豚和海鷗。有趣(可怕?!)的是,御廚會將羽毛放回煮熟了的鳥類作裝飾,奇珍異獸活現眼前,是財富的象徵。亨利八世的時代還未發明叉子,因此人們是用刀和手吃飯的,飯桌禮儀嚴謹,甚麼食物准用手碰甚麼不准都會列名清楚。 這時代講求裝飾和排場,用上金碟銀碟、水晶玻璃杯和細麻桌布。
