I've been absent from my blog while recuperating from a summer virus. I'm on the mend now but while I was taking life easy I watched A LOT of YouTube cooking videos, particularly by the Royal Chefs - Graham Newbould and Darren McGrady. Graham Newbould said the Royals are used to the very best of everything and that includes their food: not too spicy, not too cold [to be hard on their teeth], portions not too small but not too large, simple but elegant, and no garlic or onions for the Queen. There is no room for error in the royal kitchen! The videos were both entertaining and educational and I learned a few tips.
I've had Darren McGrady's cookbook for quite a while, so it was fun to watch videos for some of the recipes in his book.
