Recipes for Royals: An Unofficial Cookbook for Fans of the Crown―75 Regal Recipes

We rated this book:


In Recipes for Royals, you’ll find everything from Winston Churchill’s Potato-Leek Soup, Kate’s Chicken Curry, Comforting Welsh Rarebit, to The Queen’s Dubonnet Cocktail. There are recipes for lighter fare and family dinners, as well as ideas for afternoon tea, desserts, and cocktails. All the recipes are inspired by either the series The Crown or the lives of real royals. And while the Queen has her own personal chefs and a full cooking staff, it doesn’t mean you’ll need the same to make these recipes.

I love everything British and yet I’ve never seen an episode of The Crown, so I don’t think I appreciated the full scope of this cookbook. There are many references I didn’t know, but an avid fan of either the show or royalty would. I chose to make the Bright Berries and Cream Cake featured on the cover, and while it tasted amazing, mine looked nothing like the beautiful picture. I also made the Plain Shortbread Cookies which were by far the best recipe I’ve found for shortbread cookies. They came out super tasty and perfect. The recipes are easy to follow and delicious, great for those who are fans of The Crown or just like cooking.
