Twin chefs will work in tandem to cook lunch for the Queen’s visit to Harold Hill
Twin chefs Mark and David Borrell have done everything together for the last 43 years and cooking for the Queen is no exception.
The 43-year-old pair have prepared a three-course lunch for the monarch for her visit to the Drapers’ Academy today (Friday).
Mark said: “I always like to have staff I know working with me and David was perfect because we always work together and I know he’ll deliver the goods.”
Mark, who runs a children’s cookery club at Broadford School in Faringdon Avenue, Harold Hill, was asked to cook for the Queen by Steven Beason, director of finance at Drapers’ Academy. He then invited David to help.
They have spent months coming up with the perfect menu.
