"The Royal Touch: Simply Stunning Home Cooking From A Royal Chef"

Today's Sydney newspaper's "Home" magazine has a full page article based on the cookbook of a former personal chef to Charles/Diana/William/Harry.

Carolyn Rodd spent a decade of her life cooking for the family.

The article quotes Carolyn about white tableclothes and napkins, cake forks, sandwiches, scones and cakes.

Until just a few years ago you could get a good "mixed plate" of different types of sandwiches and various cakes at the cafe in the Botanic Gardens in Hobart, Tasmania. And for a very good price.

Alas no longer - now pre-packaged sandwiches from a kiosk are the go.

Funny how all these "high teas" are now something special - it used to be the norm once.

Anyone remember how hostesses would roll the butter up into butterballs and stack them in a pyramid on a dainty plate?

Got this book on Wednesday- love it! Five stars! I collect both cookbooks- and books on royals- especially books by former members of British Royal staff. This is the best in my collection in both genres. What to make first?

Trifle Royal
Apricot Queen of Puddings
Melting Moments cookies

Best. Photo. Ever. My RH exactly as he was. Soon after we met- Exactly the same look . At Westminster Abbey on his 90th birthday meeting HM. Another day at the office.
