Carolyn Robb has created one of the most beautiful cookery books I've ever seen. Part cookbook, part memoir of her days with the royal family The Royal Touch is rich in design and detail. But it's also filled with down to earth recipes and advice on how best to shop and eat local...wherever that local happens to be. Her recipes for kids are amazing---check out the mouse cupcakes and little sausage man! Pure pleasure... (Bonnie Grice, Bonnie in the Morning, WPPB 88.3 FM)
The book—a tribute, Robb said, to her mother—is filled with lavish color photos and fanciful watercolor illustrations that recall an English garden. (Lisa Abraham The Columbus Dispatch, May 20, 2015)
Robb shares recipes from her time at the Palace, all of which celebrate eating local and eating heartily. The food is healthy, but it’s definitely about enjoying food, not deprivation. (Noel Duan Yahoo, June 9, 2015)
Carolyn blends her South African upbringing, Cordon Bleu education, and training in Italy with a decidedly British air to create contemporary dishes based on local ingredients. The results are simple yet elegant and can be made by the home cook. (Beth Price, Director of Recipe Testing Leite's Culinaria, Leite’s Reads: Best New(ish) Books/June 24, 2015)
It's a treat for everyone. While royal watchers will enjoy the glimpses behind palace walls―A note, “Mummy says its okay!” in Diana's handwriting that Harry produced so Robb could give him a treacle tart―it's also a home cook's must-have. Packed with lucid instructions, easy-to-find ingredients and mouth-watering recipes, it's an excellent cookbook. (Patricia Treble MacClean's, April 28, 2016)
About the Author
During Carolyn Robb's time working in the royal household she had unique access to many aspects of the culinary world and in particular some of the world's most renowned chefs, with whom she worked when she was still only in her early twenties. Her job required that everything she produced was of the very highest caliber and this book clearly demonstrates that perfection in the simplest of food has far greater appeal than food of great extravagance. The recipes in this book are testament to Carolyn's great love of all things food related, her thirst for ever more culinary knowledge and the very varied experiences of her 25 years as a chef.
