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.
