Queen Elizabeth II’s former chef talks about her work for the Royal Family

Queen Elizabeth’s former chef has revealed what it was like to work for the monarch and some of the specific rules he followed while cooking for the Queen.

Darren McGrady cooked for the Queen with several members of her family, including Prince Harry, King Charles III and Princess Diana – he worked in the royal kitchens from 1988 to 1993.

The chef says the queen wasn’t particularly experimental with her food so she would need an explanation of any new recipes that were going to be on the menu.

Staff members were asked to submit the full recipe for her meals in a red binder which would then be passed to the Queen for her approval.

However, when McGrady tried to entice the sovereign to try something new, she wasn’t too impressed.

Queen Elizabeth’s former chef has revealed she’s had some interesting comments about her cooking before.

In a YouTube video originally posted before the Queen passed away on September 8, McGrady explained that he once tried to introduce a new recipe while cooking for the Queen.

At the time, Queen Elizabeth was staying at Balmoral Castle, her Scottish home which McGrady says is home to a garden of strawberries he wanted to include in a dessert called Veiled Farmer’s Daughter.
