Imagine if you, a Cape Codder, had the chance to plan the royal wedding menu for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle? We’re giving you the chance to put your favorite dish on the (albeit, imaginary) royal table.

Our illustrious executive chef James Gibney has agreed to read through your recipes and choose his favorite!

Email your recipe and a high-resolution photo to Cape Cod Times food editor Gwenn Friss at or Sunday editor Mary Weatherby at (Feel free to mention your favorite champagne or gin cocktail along with your recipe. We know you have them!)

If you haven’t already heard, the deadline to submit is May 6, so get cookin’!

The winner will receive a $50 gift card to the BBC! We’re celebrating the royal wedding with your favorite pub specials like savory meat pies and a champagne toast. Our Portsmouth pub will celebrate May 19 with an American version of the event, including bagpipers and a cupcake wedding cake.

We can’t wait to see what you create! Cheers!
