"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?
