The sweet element to our Coronation 2023 menu is a summer fruit medley that truly celebrates the best of British summer fruits and has a regal summer festive feel. Think you can’t cook summer fruits in a wood-fired oven? Our recipe proves that you can and that it can be absolutely delicious! Give it a go, whether it’s for a Coronation Big Lunch or a big lunch served, at any other time, in your back garden.
