Royal cuisine

Prince Bertil of Sweden composed Crêpes á la prins Bertil, crêpes filled with Hollandaise sauce mixed with shrimps and dill, and then gratined, and served as a starter dish. The prince was interested in cooking and had taken lessons at the Cordon bleu cooking school in Paris in the 1930ies.

Are there other royals with an interest in cooking? What royals have given name to or inspired chefs to create dishes?

As you all know, Prince Charles grows organic food and presumably eats it. More than that I don't know about his diet.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge was said to be eating a moderately high protein, low carb and low saturated fat diet, prior to pregnancy, to maintain her svelte figure.

I heard Princess Anne would rather cook the meal herself than have someone else do it for her.

I know that Queen Sofia of Spain has her cooking maids make healthy food for meals everyday, mostly vegetables, salads, fish... though the King doesn't like much that food and appreciates a good pork beef, fried potatos, etc... but can't eat that at home. (I saw that on a TV program)

According to this site:
http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandsty...e-rachel-cooke

The Prince of Wales was so fussy about his soft-boiled eggs that his staff would prepare up to seven for him every morning in the hope that at least one would be done to perfection. Charles's private chef during his first marriage, revealed that the prince's security detail would inform the kitchen as soon as HRH was on his way home for tea. "His eggs had to be boiled for exactly four minutes".
QEII favours brown eggs, believing that they taste better. Her great-great grandmother, Queen Victoria, ate her boiled egg, served in a golden egg cup, with a golden spoon.
Queen Victoria, who was convinced that "things taste better in smaller houses", favoured plain food. At home, she favoured pies and invalid soups – pearl barley or potato – washed down with her favourite drink, a mixture of claret and whisky.
The Duke of Edinburgh is said to be obsessed with barbecuing in quiet corners of his wife's estates.

More interesting stories about other British royals in that link.

Does NApolean count? Chicken MArengo was create for him with "available rations" prior to the battle of Marengo - chicken, herbs, wine and tomatoes are the main ingredients.

If you are interested in food that the BRF like here is a link to an article by the Queen's former chef.

Also, Princess Anne doesn't drink and hates celery. She also doesn't eat anything too rich in flavour. I read in a book about her that one time she had a sip of something (I forget what, some kind of spirit), and immediately blew into a breathalyzer, sending the meter soaring. She then pretended to be drunk and collapsed into a chair. A few minutes later she took it again and it was almost nullified.

Prince William, Duke of Cambridge likes cottage pie.
Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge likes sticky toffee pudding.
King Edward VII of England liked pheasant stuffed with truffles and smothered in oleaginous sauce.
He liked quails packed with foie gras and garnished with oysters, truffles, mushrooms, prawns, tomatoes, and croquettes.
Marie biscuits were named after the Grand Duchess Marie of Russia, the wife of Prince Alfred, Queen Victoria's son.

Both Prince William and Prince Henry have cooked for others while they were in Africa during their gap year.
The first gingerbread man was made for the court of Elizabeth I of England and fashioned to look like distinguished guests.

I guess there'll be a lot of sources who all mention different favorite foods, this one says P.William was a big fan of Banana Flan (at least in childhood)

I was only aware of the chocolate biscuit cake since that was prepared as an addition cake at his wedding!

Princess Madeleine of Sweden avoids eating red meat. According to the dessert cook at the Nobel dinner this year crown princess Victoria is lactose intolerant.

The first is not surpising given that she is pregnant. Being lactose intolerant must be annoying when dealing with future banquets etc.

Garnaaltjes & Zeeuwse mosselen (mussels) ! And of course, the pindakaas everywhere

[QUOTE=BeatrixFan;363085]I thought it would be interesting to discuss what the Royals like eating. For example, Princess Anne hardly eats a thing and says that meal-times take up valuable time elsewhere. Queen Elizabeth II hates chocolate but the Duke of Gloucester is a chocoholic.

I'd love to know your source for this, it is an extremely well known fact that HM The Queen is a huge fan of chocolate - afternoon tea always includes a freshly baked chocolate cake! Also chocolate eclair are regulars on the royal menu.

I sometimes take a look at the Danish Monarchy website (Kongehuset) and they often publish details of the menu served at state banquets etc. Presumably the Queen will have helped choose and decide upon the menus, and it must contain food that she will enjoy as much as her visitors!

Here is a list of the food served at a concert supper for Prince Henrik's 80th birthday: -

Fanø salmon, horseradish crème, capers and dill
Mini meatballs with Skagen ham and smoked potato crème
Strawberry, almond and chocolate tart

Foie Gras terrine, sauternes gelé, hazelnut and chervil
Puy lentils, asparagus and brunoise herbs
Boeuf bourguignon, duchesse and pearl onions
Crème brûlée with raspberries

Spring rolls with ginger fish sauce and dua món
Filet of veal, teriyaki and coriander emulsion
Asian noodle salad with julienne herbs, kimchi and pork
Exotic fruit, roasted coconut flakes and mint

And for the Turkish State Visit, the banquet had the following menu: -

Terrine of North Sea fish with pumpkin and fennel flan

Fillet of beef with carrot and potato cake
champignons á la creme

Baked Reblochon cheese

Pavlova with pear and pomegranate

I did read somewhere, but I'm not sure where it was, that King Albert was very found of soup and pasta.
Also, Princess Astrid's favorite dessert would be a "Foret Noire". She celebrated her 50th birthday with a big foret noire, and they said it is her favorite dessert. But of course, it could have been just a random comment.

(This thread makes me veryyyy hungry )

The recipe for the chocolate biscuit cake was published shortly after the Royal wedding. I think many people were curious about it after reading that William asked for it to be served with the traditional wedding cake. OMG I could not believe how incredibly delicious, not to mention fattening..it sounded!


I've also read for years that QEII is a major chocoholic, as was the late Queen Fabiola.

As the comment about Madeleine was made at the time of her wedding (it was said that there was no dishes with red meat to be served at the wedding festivities because of the wishes of the bride) it doesn't depend on her being pregnant or not.
