Tidbits about the upcoming Royal Wedding continue to leak in advance of the April 29th event and – as expected – Prince Charles is making sure at least one event is up to his green culinary standards.

According to the UK Daily Mail, the 62-year-old will host a dinner for the newly married William and Kate on the evening of the 29th. Award-winning Swiss chef and restaurateur Anton Mosimann, a close friend of Charles’, is set to cater for the event. From The Mail:

‘It will be a three-course meal and it was Kate’s idea to choose a lemon tart for dessert,’ says a friend of the couple. ‘Charles suggested Mosimann’s because they do great organic meat and fish.”

Mosimann is known for a type of cooking he titles cuisine naturelle – choosing to prepare dishes that do without such ingredients as butter, cream, and alcohol. In an interview with the UK Guardian, he said “Everywhere I cook I always find a local person to source good, fresh local ingredients.”

While the focus won’t be on plant-based dishes, Mosimann is certainly conscious of the power of good veggies and health. Check him out in this PSA below for the International Osteoporosis Foundation.
