I was explaining what goes on behind the scenes at a Buckingham Palace State banquet on CNN’s BackStory. Tonight President Obama will host a return State banquet at Winfield House, the American Ambassadors residence in Regent’s Park.
What’s funny about these “return State banquets” is that Winfield House only has a small house staff, so have to “borrow” footmen and chefs (including me) to cater the banquet. Her Majesty the Queen feels at home there…. no wonder, she is surrounded by her own staff. Winfield House is where I cooked for President Clinton.
