Beef from three British native breeds of cattle will be on the menu at a Royal dinner for European guests at Clarence House next Monday (6 November ).
Welsh Black, Aberdeen-Angus, and Sussex Beef, will be served at a dinner hosted by HRH The Prince of Wales to promote British beef to the European export market.
The meat will be prepared by celebrity chef, James Martin, and served to guests including influential European chefs, food writers and restaurateurs.
The Prince of Wales is a hugely valued patron of the Welsh Black Cattle Society, the Aberdeen-Angus Cattle Society, and the Sussex Cattle Society, and asked for beef from these breeds to be served at the dinner. He has cattle from these three breeds at his Highgrove Estate in Gloucestershire.
"It is a great honour to have The Prince of Wales as our patron and we are proud that he is actively supporting and promoting our native beef breeds and British food," said Andrew James, chief executive of the Welsh Black Cattle Society.
"We know that native British Beef is the best in the world and are delighted that leading continental chefs and food writers are coming to this country to taste 'the real thing' for themselves. We are hugely indebted to The Prince of Wales for organising such a wonderful occasion," said Sue Kennedy Secretary of the Sussex Cattle Society.
