When a British royal is not in the mood to enjoy a traditional dinner party, the Queen often enjoys a dinner party at a small farmhouse.
She’s even visited some in her private residence.
But now that she’s back home and her visit to India has ended, the royal has decided to cook a little less traditional.
A blackberry farm in India has now become the new royal hotspot, and the Queen’s favourite thing to do at home is make blackberry-infused desserts.
“The Queen is a big believer in good food,” said M.K. Agarwal, a local who owns the farm, called the Blackberry farm to table in Lucknow.
“We’re trying to bring something to the table for the Queen,” Agarwals sister said.
The Queen likes to make blackberries with her husband Prince William and Prince Harry.
The pair have been seen cooking at the farm for a few weeks now.
Agarwal and his wife are now hoping to expand the farm’s offerings.
The farm has now been turned into a tea house, and Agarwat has started making blackberry tea.
In recent months, the Agarwaras family has been buying blackberries in bulk from the local market, which is now supplying the Queen with more than 100 kilograms of blackberries every month.
The Agarwaas farm now supplies about 50% of the Queens daily supply of blackberry.
“We are so happy that the Queen is coming here and enjoying a Blackberry-based dinner,” Agartwal said.
“Now we can focus on her personal needs.”
Agartwal also plans to create a blackberry cocktail.
Agarwal said that the Blackberries and Blackcurrants tea is the Queen s favourite drink.
“Blackberries are so special to her, and she enjoys making blackberries.
I don’t think it’s a bad idea to use Blackberries in a cocktail,” he said.
Agarwal said the Queen also enjoys blackberry chutneys.
Blackberry-curry, or blackberry jam, is a popular drink for the monarch and is also one of her favourites.
However, the blackberry is not the only delicacy that the Royal family likes to try.
Agarrwal said the Royal Family enjoys cooking with their own children.
When the Queen visited Mumbai last year, she met her daughter and her son-in-law Prince Chhatrapati Shivaji.
Agaramwal said her children are also very keen to try out Indian cooking, particularly tea.
“I can’t speak for them, but I can say that the children are very keen on Indian cooking,” Agarrwals mother said.
The Blackberry farming has already brought about a few jobs for locals in Lucknagar.
The farmers also plan to open a tea shop in the future.
