I've had the book for two years, and I've made about a dozen of the recipes.
J. Ortiz
The recipes were well photographed and reading about the history of them in relation to the family was interesting.
Lee Anderson

I'd first read that Mr. McGrady was writing this book a couple of years ago, then when I finally read about it being out (in my local newspaper, I read an interview)I decided to get myself a copy.

The book is pretty well written, giving some background on McGrady and Royal life. You'll find six chapters concerning specific Royal locations, each of these will give some information on McGrady and whatever section you're reading. No scandal, no Burrell bashing- just what should be in a book of this sort.

The recipes are written, in this edition anyway, for American cooks- no metric conversions for us- and will sometimes include some little bit about a particular member of the Royal family that liked the item. Most of the identified items concern the Queen or Princess Diana but some of the other family members too. I'm no cook but I think I could manage most of them myself. The photographs of the food items appear to be professionally done while most others McGrady probably took himself with his own camera.

It's a pleasant and informative book to read, not too braggy, worth buying as a gift if not for yourself. The recipes will appeal to many possible readers who would not otherwise care a bit about Diana (one recipe includes a lowfat version for her and a regular version for guests)or the Royals. I may never get much use out of it but I don't regret buying it.

I received this book yesterday and couldn't put it down! It is beautifully done with full color photos throughout.

Favorite recipes of the Royal Family are given with a little story behind them. Kitchens of the various palaces and operations of producing meals for the private and public events are detailed. The behind-the-scenes stories are wonderful.

A great resource for those interested in the Royals. Do not read if you are hungry! You'll want to rush to your kitchen and try out a recipe!

"I have had the honor of eating some some wonderful food prepared by Darren McGrady. My wife and I are big fans and have been anxiously waiting the release of his first cookbook.

Darren's talent with food, his insight into the royal family and his warm sense of humor make this book a MUST HAVE."

Just recieved my copy in the mail. What a fun book by a great chef and admirer of Princess Diana. It is so refreshing to see someone who knew her, that is not trying to profit from it. He is donating all of the proceeds to a charity benefitting children with AIDS, two of Diana's favorite causes.
The recipes are scrumptious, but the stories are just as interesting.You get an insiders look of how things were in the Queen's kitchen and what Diana and the boys enjoyed eating.
One of my favorite stories was as a young chef in the Queen's kitchen, a senior chef showed him the precise way to peel and cut carrots for the Queen. Darren asked, "Aren't those awful big?" The senior chef said No, if they were shorter, the horses might bite the Queen's hand.
It is full of beautiful pictures and you will not be able to wait to get to your kitchen and eat like the royals.

THIS IS A GREAT COOKBOOK I TRIED TWO RECIPES YESTERDAY. THE CREME BRULE-BREAD PUDDING IS NOT TO BE BELIEVED!!! THE STEAK STUFFED WITH BOURSIN CHEESE AND PINE NUTS WAS VERY GOOD ALSO... ITS A HANDSOME BOOK AND WORTH EVERY CENT OF IT.

This is a very nice gift book for anyone who enjoys cooking, especially when accompanied by a gift certificate for cooking utensils or products. Despite the "Royal" title, the food is actually quite down-to-earth and fairly simple to prepare. Wonderful inside stories about the Royal family are peppered throughout the book.

This is a delightful book written in a warm, yet elegant style, taking you 'backstage' as it were, to the kitchens of Queen Elizabeth. It is packed with sumptuous photos, mouth-watering recipes and personal anecdotes that make for an interesting read. I have not been bold enough to attempt any of the recipes yet - the challenge awaits!

I've had the book for two years, and I've made about a dozen of the recipes. Most of them turned out beautifully (and the rest were good). Some of the dishes are now part of my regular "repertoire" (Raspberries St. George, Bread Pudding). I am a foodie and a dedicated home chef, and this has become one of my favorite cookbooks!
