Synopsis: Straight from the kitchens of Buckingham Palace, this fascinating new collection offers an extraordinary insight into royal gastronomy. Lovingly curated by Charles Oliver, who was born into the royal household as the son of a royal servant, this book features exclusive photographs, recipes, anecdotes and menus that span across three generations of royal dining.Oliver grew up with the Royal Family, spending over sixty years in their service, and thus became a familiar face at both Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle, as well as Balmoral. Over that time, he developed a keen interest in royal eating habits, having been witness to the meals of Queen Victoria, George V and Queen Mary, and Elizabeth II. This new compilation offers a never-before-seen glimpse into the intimate affair of afternoon tea in the Royal Household, as well as the more formal proceedings of a state supper, alongside a brief insight into the history of royal cooking.Featuring a selection of menus used at actual royal events, alongside a series of exclusive private photographs of the Royal Family, this new insight into the world of royal dining will give you the inspiration you need to transform your own dinner parties and afternoon luncheons, enabling you to create exquisite dishes and craft decadent desserts which are fit for a king or queen!
