In 1575, the love of Queen Elizabeth I's life put on a banquet of 300 desserts at his home in her honour. Recently, that banquet was recreated - but would all the desserts be suitable for modern tastes? Join Yvonne and Kate as they discuss some of the dishes on offer.
This week's question:
A jaffa cake is a cross between a small cake and a biscuit and they're covered in chocolate - so they make a great dessert. What is the world record for the number of jaffa cakes anyone has ever eaten in one minute?
Listen out for the answer in the programme.
