I had to get this book it has a recipe mini Scotch eggs and Punch jelly, which is an extremely alcoholic jelly made of rum and brandy. It has a section on planning parties, including information on plates, silverware, glassware and even directions on how to fold two different kinds of napkins, and as the title suggests - manners.

It is arranged by season, and even has a small wedding section. It has little tidbits of information sprinkled throughout, history of the dishes, traditions and even some about Princess Diana and the royal family. It has some cute recipes for children like spooky jacket potatoes, which are basically twice baked potatoes with black olive decorations making them look like ghosts. Besides the mini Scotch eggs there is also mini Cornish pasties . Each section also has a table arrangement, usually flowers with directions as to how you can re-create them for your table. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 044652641X, Hardcover)

If anyone should know about proper etiquette and entertaining, it's England's royal family. Centuries of grand affairs have honed their skills and that of their servants as well. Paul Burrell, former butler to Diana, Princess of Wales, puts his 20-plus years of experience to good use in the book In the Royal Manner. Arranged by season, this lavishly illustrated volume, complete with color photographs throughout, provides detailed guidelines on "etiquette and entertaining, as well as the royal standards for teas, picnics, children's parties, simple suppers and brunches, holiday meals, formal weddings, and other celebrations." From straightforward recipes--including one of Princess Diana's favorite desserts, Pears in Port Wine Sauce with Cinnamon Ice Cream--and full menus, to seating charts, table manners, arranging centerpieces, even folding napkins, every aspect of a special occasion is covered. Also of interest are the informative sidebars that document Burrell's personal knowledge of "palace history and lore, along with his special perspective on the traditions of the royal family and his treasured memories of the late Princess of Wales." A useful and beautiful homage to the royal style, In the Royal Manner will expertly aid you in planning a party that's truly fit for a king.
