It’s the season for Royal Wedding Fever in London at the Jumeirah Hotels. Jumeirah Carlton Tower, a luxury hotel in the heart of Knightsbridge, is celebrating its Royal ties in time for the Royal Wedding of the year: the wedding of HRH Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle. The Jumeirah Carlton Tower has many royal connections to Britain’s royal family, including serving beef from the same Royal Warrant holder who supplies to Her Majesty the Queen Elizabeth II, and interviewing Meghan Markle before her engagement to Prince Harry was announced.
ROYAL WEDDING FEVER IN LONDON AT THE JUMEIRAH HOTELS
As the world goes Royal-wedding-crazy in the lead-up to the big day, The Rib Room Bar & Restaurant at Jumeirah Carlton Tower will be undertaking its routine Royal-worthy meal preparation. The Rib Room Bar & Restaurant has been serving top-quality beef from the Royal Warrant Holder, Donald Russell, for four years. Executive Head Chef at The Rib Room, Simon Young said, “It’s a privilege to be serving meat from Royal Warrant Holder butcher Donald Russell at The Rib Room Bar & Restaurant. Our Royal grade rib of beef dish is a bestseller and our dedicated team in the kitchen work hard so that the meat is prepared to perfection.”
ABOUT BUTCHER DONALD RUSSELL
For over 40 years, Donald Russell has passionately upheld the highest standards of craft butchery. Renowned for the quality of its hand cut steaks and roasts, its small team of Aberdeenshire butchers were awarded the Royal Warrant for the quality of their meat and poultry in 1984, and have held it continuously ever since. It’s no surprise that the Royal family choose Donald Russell as their butcher by appointment. Surrounded by the rich, rolling farmland of Aberdeenshire, Donald Russell has its roots in the partnership of a butcher and a local beef farmer, back in 1974 and are proud to keep the traditional butcher’s craft and hand skills alive.
Rob McFarlane, Director of Sales & Business at Donald Russell says: “Here at Donald Russell, we’re very proud of our own Royal connection. We have been supplying the Royal Households for well over 30 years, which we regard as a testament to the quality of our meat. We’ve also worked for many years with The Rib Room, supplying our hand selected, traditionally dry-aged ribs of grass-fed British beef, delivered directly from our butchery in Inverurie, Aberdeenshire to the Rib Room in Jumeirah Carlton Tower in Knightsbridge.”
