Former royal chef Darren McGrady will create a multicourse, cereal-infused menu for royal wedding viewing party at Kellogg’s NYC Café on May 19
As the royal nuptials take place early in the morning stateside, Kellogg’s® invites all NYC-based royal fanatics to the ultimate breakfast and viewing party on May 19 at 5:30am E.T. – complete with edible glitter, cereal box fascinator hats and Tony the Tigerin dapper form! Cereal lovers across the U.S. also have a unique opportunity to join in the fun, as Kellogg’s® offers DIY recipes and tutorials to throw a cereal-inspired watch party of your own.
Kellogg‘s® is a proud royal warrant holder, meaning we’ve had the privilege to be the official cereal provider of the royal household for three monarchs. For the event, Kellogg’s® has teamed up with former royal chef Darren McGrady to craft a celebratory, multicourse breakfast that elevates the watch party experience and helps cereal lovers reimagine the breakfast staple. U.K. grandeur will meet U.S. appeal to create a delicious, cereal-centric pairing menu worthy of the royal occasion.
Following 15 years of service to the royal household, McGrady is known for helping home chefs entertain with a royal touch. “There are plenty of ways to add regal flair to a meal, and I’m thrilled to demonstrate that with something as fun and exciting as cereal,” McGrady said. “Whether you’re celebrating this global event with Kellogg‘s in NYC or re-creating the menu for your own guests, you’ll be wowed by all of the ways you can reimagine cereal beyond the bowl.”
The menu includes:
- Stately Scones: Kellogg‘s® Frosted Flakes® Scones with Macerated Strawberries, Basil and Whipped Froot Loops® Cream
- Krispy Gems: Rice Krispies®-Encrusted Scotch Eggs with Sausage & Bacon
- Bars of Gold: Kellogg‘s® Corn Flakes® English Flapjacks with Seeds
