Darren McGrady was the personal chef to Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip, Princess Diana, Prince Charles, and Princes William and Harry-a family with notoriously specific food needs-for 15 years. In 1998, he moved to the U.S.A. where he wrote best-selling cookbooks and founded Eating Royally, a fine-dining catering service based in Dallas, TX.
In the second installment of this limited series, Chef McGrady walks Delish through the royals' favorite recipes from his Dallas test kitchen...while spilling all the most glorious royal tea. We talked all things Queen Elizabeth (again!) this time around.

  • I don't how to say this but this lovely man is probably disowned by the Royal Family now. The royal family have this pact with their staff members that nothing is revealed about the royal family. This man has made a whole career outside of the royal family as "Royal Family Chef" and moved to Texas and gives dinners in the style of the royal family. Basically he has sold out on the royal family. One of the nanny's of Elizabeth and Margaret wrote a book about the little girls and she was shunned from the royal family afterwards.
