A portrait of the Queen has been recreated using Greek food to celebrate the opening of a new restaurant in Windsor.
The Real Greek, which opened in River Street last month, commissioned food artist Nathan Wyburn to create the tasty work of art to coincide with the Queen's official birthday on Saturday.
Fresh ingredients used in the masterpiece included 50 olives, 30 flatbreads, five dolmades, three bowls of melitzanosalata, three bowls of tomato ghaini, three bowls of smoked chilli relish, two bowls of hummus, two lemons and two celery sticks.
Christos Karatzenis, owner of The Real Greek, said: "We wanted to introduce The Real Greek to Windsor by celebrating its most famous resident but with a fun Greek twist.
"We would gladly welcome her and her family through our doors if they ever decide to pop in for any of our traditional Greek mezze."
