Michael Buerk says he’s ‘always wanted to eat like a king’ – and that’s just what he does in this daytime series, showing each weekday afternoon.

Using recipes written down by Buckingham Palace kitchen maid Mildred Nicholls over a century ago, Michael joins Michelin-starred chef Paul Ainsworth to recreate dishes that would have graced royal tables.

Today, the focus is on coronations – which means salmon, spectacular desserts and, of course, coronation chicken.
