Eating Royally – Recipes and Remembrances from a Palace Kitchen

Eating Royally – Recipes and Remembrances from a Palace Kitchen is Chef Darren McGrady’s first book and features over 100 recipes and 150 photographs – both food shots and personal photos taken during his 15 years royal service. Darren donated ALL of the advance and ALL of the royalties to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric Aids Foundation (two of Princess Diana’s charitable goals were children and HIV/AIDS). 

New cookbook to come out in late 2017!
