The Daily Telegraph can reveal that the meal's show piece will be lamb from a Welsh hill farm in Snowdonia, served with simple flat bread and the strong-flavoured English herb – wild garlic, which grows in shaded woodlands around the country and can be either cooked or eaten in salads.
The starter is understood to be English asparagus, possibly from the Scilly Isles or Cornwall.
Simple, seasonal and decidedly British, the menu is in sharp contrast to last July's G8 meeting in Japan, where leaders had an eight-course meal featuring 18 dishes while they were meant to be discussing how to ease global food shortages. This feast, attended by Gordon Brown and his wife Sarah, included caviar, smoked salmon, Kyoto beef and a "G8 fantasy dessert".
