He is rustling up a royal picnic menu fit for a king or a queen, and each of his dishes has a special royal memory attached to it, which Darren will discuss as we go along.

Lesley's strawberry feast

Wimbledon season is truly upon us with the men and women's quarter finals taking place later today. But enough about the tennis, what about the strawberries that we'll be munching on?

And some science news too: the sounds you're hearing while you eat your strawberries can have an impact on how tasty they are. Let's hope the sound of Lesley Waters' voice has a positive effect - she'll be creating a three course meal dedicated to the juicy fruit - and she's even thrown in a special cocktail to try too.
