The Royal Touch is a beautiful compilation of stunning recipes gathered from far and wide on an incredible culinary journey. It is one that has covered three continents over several decades and has taken in many a royal palace along the way. Carolyn Robb, former personal chef to TRH The Prince and Princess of Wales, Prince William and Prince Harry, presents the food that she loves to serve to her family and friends; food that is fit for a king, yet is accessible to us all. Inspired by everything from her mother s home-cooking, memories of her happy childhood in South Africa and her extensive travels to the extraordinary experiences of 13 years as a chef in the royal household, Carolyn's recipes are simple to prepare and perfect to share. Whether you are entertaining special guests, going on a picnic, planning a cosy fireside supper, cooking with children or you simply feel like trying your hand at some baking, this book has it all and the ingredients you require won't break the bank.
What the press have said about this book...
"Carolyn blends her South African upbringing, Cordon Bleu education, and training in Italy with a decidedly British air to create contemporary dishes based on local ingredients. The results are simple yet elegant and can be made by the home cook." -- Beth Price, Director of Recipe Testing, Leite's Culinaria, June 24, 2015
"It’s a treat for everyone. While royal watchers will enjoy the glimpses behind palace walls—A note, “Mummy says its okay!” in Diana’s handwriting that Harry produced so Robb could give him a treacle tart—it’s also a home cook’s must-have. Packed with lucid instructions, easy-to-find ingredients and mouth-watering recipes, it’s an excellent cookbook." - Patricia Treble, MacClean's
"Carolyn Robb has created one of the most beautiful cookery books I've ever seen. Part cookbook, part memoir of her days with the royal family The Royal Touch is rich in design and detail. But it's also filled with down to earth recipes and advice on how best to shop and eat local...wherever that local happens to be. Her recipes for kids are amazing---check out the mouse cupcakes and little sausage man! Pure pleasure..." - Bonnie Grice, Bonnie in the Morning, WPPB 88.3 FM
"The book—a tribute, Robb said, to her mother—is filled with lavish color photos and fanciful watercolor illustrations that recall an English garden." - Lisa Abraham, The Columbus Dispatch
"Robb shares recipes from her time at the Palace, all of which celebrate eating local and eating heartily. The food is healthy, but it’s definitely about enjoying food, not deprivation." - Noel Duan, Yahoo
"It was a delight to read the anecdotes that preceded some of the recipes, and viewing the beautiful colour illustrations throughout the cookbook." - Liliana, My Cookbook Addiction
