Return Dinner

The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh were entertained on Wednesday evening at a Dinner given by the President of the United States of America and Mrs Obama at Winfield House, Regent's Park, London.  
Winfield House was built by the famous American socialite Barbara Hutton, dubbed the ‘poor little rich girl’ because of her troubled life, who lived there for a period with her husband Cary Grant.

The 35-room mansion replaced a John Nash building and was named after Hutton’s grandfather Frank Winfield Woolworth, founder of the retail stores.

The guests enjoyed a three-course meal that included:
  • lobster ravioli, 
  • griddled fillet of aged Highland beef, 
  • crushed jersey royals with rosemary, 
  • asparagus and minted broad beans, 
  • pecan pie and brandy ice cream
