        About Darren McGrady: The Royal Chef

For 15 years, Darren McGrady devoted his royal service to Queen Elizabeth
      II of England and Diana, Princess of Wales. He spent eleven years
     serving as a senior chef in the Royal kitchens at Buckingham Palace
  where he traveled around the world with the Queen and the royal family,
   and was then hired as personal chef to Princess Diana for the following
   four years until her tragic accident in 1997. Prior to his royal service he
  trained at the Savoy hotel in London and obtained a bachelors degree in
                                  culinary arts.
 Darren has cooked for four U.S. Presidents as well over a hundred Kings,
  Queens and Heads of State. He has cooked on The Today Show and CBS
    Early Show in New York as well as many breakfast shows around the
  U.S.A. and Canada. He has also appeared on CNN headline news, Larry
            King live, Fox News Channel, QVC,BBC and many more.
The Royal Chef: Eating Royally

                  Darren’s first book Eating Royally:
                  Recipes and Remembrances from a
                Palace Kitchen, was published in 2007.
                In it, he presents many of the recipes he
                 served the Royals, Diana in particular.
                  Eating Royally is much more than a
               cookbook; it is an opportunity to see how
               the Royals really live and to eat the exact
                     recipes that graced the tables of
                  Windsor, Balmoral, Kensington, and
                           Buckingham Palaces.
