Kennedy and Rhind is the latest Newcastle business embracing the Jubilee mood

A North East bakery is embracing the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations by adding a very British twist to the humble croissant.

Kennedy and Rhind, which has a bakery and café at Holly Avenue West, Newcastle, is baking a whole batch of different offerings to mark the anniversary.

The products include their red, white and blue croissant – flavoured with English rose, blackcurrant and vanilla – which will go on sale as a limited edition later this week.

The bakers will also be offering a Mint Benedicks Brownie, using what is reputedly the Queen’s favourite after-dinner chocolate, a Crown Macaron and a Coronation Chicken Pie.

The jubilee offerings will be available from Kennedy and Rhind’s Jesmond café from Thursday and Jesmond Food Market this weekend on Saturday, June 4.

David Kennedy said: “This is a very special event and we couldn’t let it pass without making our own contribution.

“So, we’ve put a royal slant on some of our best-selling pastries which will only be available this weekend.

“We’ve used ingredients that we know the Queen enjoys plus put our own twist on some of her much-loved favourites and we know our customers will love the results.”
