Mustard at the Imperial War Museum
HRH’s Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were recently guests of honour at the Imperial War Museum to launch the First World War Galleries Centenary Campaign. Mustard were thrilled to be commissioned by the hosts to create a menu of period canapes, including miniature Roquefort soufflés with pear chutney and tiny eggs Benedict with truffled hollandaise. The period evening for 300 guests was enhanced with liveried private house style butlers, evoking memories of Upstairs Downstairs, Downton Abbey and Remains of the Day.
Prince William is a patron of the IWM Foundation’s First World War Centenary Campaign. At the event he gave a speech about the significance of the museum and how it reminds one of the many sacrifices that people had to make during the war.
“Every exhibit, every display, every tank, aircraft and medal in its case, speaks to us of sacrifice, of the facing down of evil, of freedom bought and preserved – for us – at unimaginable cost in human lives and suffering”.
