Dinner at Buckingham Palace : Based on the Diaries of Charles Oliver Paperback / softback

Edited by Paul Fishman, Fiorella Busoni


"Dinner at Buckingham Palace" is a unique collection of authentic recipes from the royal households, based on the diaries and personal recollections of royal servant Charles Oliver.

It became a hobby of his to collect royal menus and recipes until he amassed a considerable collection.

He also lovingly and respectfully hoarded a treasure of anecdotes, souvenirs and information on royal tastes and entertaining, to make his own unique and individual commentary, as well as a store of never-before-published private photographs.

So, from Queen Victoria's habit of eating breakfast to the sound of bagpipes, to Prince Philip's favourite recipe for scrambled eggs, this book provides a delightful memoir of the tastes and traditions of the royal household over several generations.
