KIRKUS REVIEW

Born in Sweden, married to a Scot, Mrs. McKee was well in her fifties when she went to Clarence House in 1951 as the only female chef in charge of a royal kitchen (for a less royal emolument- 6 pounds a week). This collection of recipes, orginally written down at the request of the Queen Mother, includes a variety of things from sauces to a smorgasbord and many of the ruling family's favorites from stuffed cabbage to African souffle to canneloni to Prince Charles' nursery puddings. Even atmeal... Many of these dishes are surprisingly plain (to prepare as well) so that the collection may have a little more than occasional usage beyond the sovereign achet of its appear.
