Item description for Eating Royally: Recipes and Remembrances from a Palace Kitchen by Darren McGrady...

McGrady served as Princess Dianas personal chef until her death in 1997. Here he presents many of the recipes he served the Royals, and Diana in particular. Filled with artifacts, personal notes, photographs, and never-before-seen memorabilia, this is much more than a cookbook.

Publishers Description

Meals and memories from Princess Diana's personal chef.

All families have their favorite foods―including the House of Windsor. Darren McGrady, personal chef to Princess Diana and chef to the royal family for fifteen years, has collected more than 100 recipes in "Eating Royally" and behind-the-scenes stories that offer insight into the royal family's lives.

From hearty cooking to gourmet eating, these dishes will impress even the most discerning palates. Recipes include traditional English fare, and, of course, royal favorites, such as:

  • Spring Asparagus Soup with Dill
  • Poached Eggs en Croute
  • Gleneagles Pate
  • Earl Grey Tea Cake
  • Gaelic Steaks
  • Royal Tea Scones
  • Eggs Drumkilbo
  • Summer Pudding
  • Iced Praline Souffles

McGrady witnessed the rich history and surprisingly normal family life of the Royals, all while preparing elegant food with classical French influences for their table.

Filled with touching photographs, mementos, and personal messages, "Eating Royally" chronicles one chef's extraordinary experiences within the walls of Buckingham Palace.

Reviews - What do customers think about Eating Royally: Recipes and Remembrances from a Palace Kitchen?

Very enjoyable book!  Oct 25, 2009
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book! The recipes are clearly explained with substitutions suggested to American readers for British ingredients. The pictures are beautiful and are enough to make even a non-cook want to turn on the oven.
The comments about the royal family are both funny and poignant. If you have ever wondered what are some of the Queen's (or Diana's) favorite dishes, look no further.
Worth every nickel  Jun 20, 2009
I bought two copies of this cookbook -- one for myself and one for my Welsh cousins. Other reviewers have said it all: this is a gem and the recipes are manageable (unlike a lot of glossy cookbooks).

The book is handsome, entertaining, and highly useful in the kitchen.
The recipe for spring peas and mint is not only exotic but extremely delicious.

Frankly, this is a bargain to be had.

Royal Cookbook/Memoir in Very Good Taste  Jul 19, 2008
This is a wonderful cookbook on several levels and I am happy to see that it has received consistently positive reviews!

Darren McGrady deserves congratulations for creating an entertaining cookbook that also delivers delicious recipes. His personal anecdotes about the Queen and Princess Diana are both amusing and discreet.

The book is well structured according to seasons and royal residences, such as Christmas at Sandringham and Autumn at Balmoral. The beginning of each chapter contains an overview of the season and location, and Chef McGrady weaves his own professional memoir into this structure.

Copies of formal menus, handwritten notes of instruction from the royal family, and informal snapshots of the various royal kitchens are interspersed in an elegant scrapbook fashion. Then come the recipes for the chapter, back to back.

Favorite recipes of the royal family are included, many with an introductory paragraph of just what it was that made that particular recipe so special to the individual. I must add, though, that you will have fun reading between the lines in a description of a culinary episode about a former duchess. You will have to admit, Darren McGrady has style.

The recipes that I have tried so far come from the Kensington Palace section, nicely subtitled "A Home for All Seasons." These are Princess Diana's favorites and are lighter and more contemporary. I particularly enjoyed the stuffed aubergines and the lobster Thermidor (OK, not so light and not so contemporary, but a delicious classic). And after eating a salad with the Pureed Herb Dressing, I have to take a bit of bread to sponge up the remaining dressing because it is that good. The recipes that I tried worked perfectly and most of them are accompanied by photographs.

This was very neatly done. I was left with the impression of a great chef, good writer, and generous man: 100% of the proceeds of this book go to the Elizabeth Glazer Pediatric Aids Foundation.

Naughty thought: I wonder how Paul Burrell, Diana's tell-all butler, feels about this?
Eating Royally....wonderful , inviting,  Jun 16, 2008
This was well worth the investment. It contains many recipes served to the Royal family. Wonderful pictures and information on the Queen's dinner events and occasions. Filled with many memories of the food service given by Chef Darren McGrady. I would recommend it to any one who is interested in the Royal family lifestyles.
Eating Royally: Recipes and Remembrances from a Palace Kitchen  Apr 5, 2008
Very enjoyable book with beautiful illustrations. Mouth-watering recipes included as well as the feeling the author knew and loved the royal family.
