Royal Teas: Recipes from Buckingham Palace

Ever wondered what Queen Elizabeth serves for afternoon tea?

All is revealed in a new cookbook written by the Royal Chef, Mark Flanagan, and Royal Pastry Chef, Kathryn Cuthbertson, this latest Royal Collection Trust cookbook celebrates the quintessentially English tradition of taking afternoon tea.

From simple cardamom and orange shortbread to the show-stopping ‘Gâteau Opéra’ topped with gold leaf, the 40 mouth-watering sweet and savoury recipes are illustrated with specially commissioned photography at Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle.

Royal Teas: Seasonal recipes from Buckingham Palace opens with ‘Her Majesty’s Recipe for Drop Scones’, sent by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to President Dwight D Eisenhower of the United States in response to his request for the recipe. The recipes are then arranged by season, highlighting the Royal Kitchen’s emphasis on the use of UK-sourced seasonal produce, from summer berry tartlets to spring-harvested broad beans in the salmon and tarragon quiche and autumnal wild mushrooms in vol-au-vents.

Royal Teas includes recipes served to the Royal Family’s guests at official functions, such as the clementine macarons and chocolate and almond biscotti. Palace recipes for classic favourites at The Queen’s Garden Parties include carrot cake and Victoria sponge, named in honour of Queen Victoria, who established royal Garden Parties in the 1860s.

The recipes are introduced with a chapter on the history of afternoon tea, the concept of which is credited to Anna Maria Russell, Duchess of Bedford, Lady of the Bedchamber to Queen Victoria. In aristocratic circles of the 19th century dinner was served late, so afternoon tea was the perfect way to fill the gap between the traditional light lunch and the evening meal.


There are a number of ways you can prepare the tea to add even more flavor and dimension but the following recipe is how I make royal milk tea.

I do not normally use a measuring cup, and use a teacup to make. However, not everyone has the same size teacup, so I measured it precisely for this recipe. I also included my teacup measuring in parenthesis as well.

Tips for Making Tea

  • I recommend using a pre-warmed cup to maintain the temperature of the tea.
  • To make dark-colored tea, use Assam tea
  • To make light-colored tea, use Darjeeling tea.

Recipes

Recipes are unique combinations of ingredients using the drinks, desserts and toppings you have unlocked so far in the game. As you level up, you can make additional recipes once you purchase the newest equipment available for your level.

New recipes have to be made once to be unlocked and sold in your café. You can figure them out thanks to Koffsky and other customers' hints or by spending diamonds.

Customers will start asking for recipes using your current level's equipment even if you have not purchased the equipment or unlocked the recipes yet. They will leave your café if you do not serve them unless they are ordering something else in addition, but they will return to your café later. In your café's profit summary, a negative amount may be shown from customers whose orders your staff were unable to complete while you were away from the game, either due to lacking the required equipment or the recipe being locked.


How to Make a Cafe Latte

Lattes (or caffe lattes) are espresso drinks made with a fairly large amount of steamed milk. It is similar to a cappuccino, but, while a cappuccino is comprised of equal parts espresso, steamed milk, and foam, a latte is made with much more milk than coffee. Lattes use a ratio of at least 1 shot of espresso to 2 ounces of steamed milk (this recipe is 1 to 3) and are capped with just a thin layer of foam on the top. This means lattes are milkier than cappuccinos, and because it has more steamed than foamed milk, the milk sinks into the espresso in a latte, while cappuccinos have three distinct layers.

In America, it is common to add flavored syrups or powders when making lattes, including flavors such as vanilla, hazelnut, and caramel. In this recipe, the flavoring is optional, so you can customize the beverage or keep the coffee simple. To make any type of espresso drink, you will need an espresso maker this recipe includes the steps for preparing and pulling shots.

While this step is NOT necessary to making royal icing, it’s a good method to know when working with raw egg whites in case you’re worried. To heat treat the eggs, cook them in a bain-marie over low heat for 2-3 minutes, whisking constantly. Do this just until the egg whites have become warm — but are not hot. This will kill any potential bacteria in the eggs, making them safe to use when raw, and with the addition of the lemon juice, you’ll be as safe as can be! IF you don’t want to use egg whites at all then you can use meringue powder to make this frosting also.

I love to use this thicker form of royal icing to smooth over cakes and create a blank snowy slate for other decorations. Additionally, my easy royal icing is the perfect consistency for creating a really fun texture. To do this, I get creative with an offset spatula and go to town, creating lovely swirls and peaks.


Cafe Rio Burrito

Cafe Rio burritos (click HERE for full recipe) are made with a giant homemade tortilla and served with lettuce and pico de gallo. They are filled with:

  • Your favorite meat (see above)
  • Black beans or pinto beans
  • Enchilada sauce (red, medium green, or mild green)
  • Mexican blend shredded cheese

Once your burrito is assembled, you can make it “enchilada style” by adding more enchilada sauce, topping it with more cheese, and heating in the oven until the cheese is melted. Add shredded lettuce and pico de gallo to the side and you are ready to go!


Royal family releases 2018 Christmas card photos

After 15 years with the royal family, McGrady moved to the U.S. and became a personal chef to a family in Texas. He now runs a catering company in the Dallas area, where he helps his clients with high-end events, teaches cooking classes and leads culinary tours.

With those upper-crust credentials, you might assume that any recipes McGrady shares would be way too fussy for a home cook. But the recipes in his book, "The Royal Chef at Home: Easy Seasonal Entertaining," are approachable for cooks of all skill levels and he includes plenty of time-saving tips and make-ahead options. McGrady told TODAY Food that he wanted to showcase "recipes that were foolproof — to the standard of what I did at Buckingham Palace but doable as a home chef."

Prince William, Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex — aka the royal "fab four" — will spend Christmas Day together at Sandringham, Queen Elizabeth’s estate in Norfolk. And while McGrady never worked directly for the two couples, he is sharing five recipes that were served for many years to all the royals for Christmas dinner. (We do know, however, they will be served these gingerbread cookies.) Each dish has a connection to the royal family, but you don't need the skills of a royal chef to make them.

With a little planning, you'll be able to relax and enjoy the meal with your friends and family, instead of running back and forth between the kitchen and dining room. After all, says McGrady, your guests aren't coming over for a restaurant-style experience, but "they are coming over for your company."

Potted Shrimp

Potted shrimp — a buttery spread made with chopped, seasoned and cooked shrimp served on toast points — makes an elegant appetizer for your guests to nibble on before dinner. "At Balmoral Castle, the Queen would receive a delivery of Morecambe Bay shrimp each week to be served at afternoon tea with hot crusty Melba toast, so the spicy shrimp butter would melt into the toast," says McGrady. He calls it the "ultimate comfort food after a chilly day in the hills."

Beef Bourguignon

Beef Bourguignon may be French in origin but it's an English royal family favorite. McGrady would make it with a special twist by using venison from royal shooting parties around Christmas and the New Year. "Shooting lunches at Sandringham and Balmoral Castle always had to be hearty meals — lots of stews with mashed potatoes," said McGrady. "Beef bourguignon could be made with beef or with venison off the estate." He added that the Queen preferred the latter. McGrady and his team would make a batch and send it out with the shooting party in special hunting boxes designed to keep the food warm.

Shredded Brussels Sprouts with Onion and Bacon

"The Balmoral Castle gardens were amazing and provided fresh incredible produce to the kitchens daily," said McGrady. This simple dish of Brussels sprouts cooked with onion and bacon is the perfect example of the type of dish he'd make with the bounty from the local produce. And "anything tastes good with onions and bacon," added the chef. But if you want to be really true to a royal feast, you'll have to omit one ingredient from this recipe: "Of course, we couldn't use garlic in the recipe when the Queen was at the table because she did it like it," said McGrady.

Kale and Goat Cheese Mashed Potatoes

"We served bubble and squeak — a traditional British dish of mashed potatoes mixed with chopped cabbage — a lot at Buckingham Palace," said McGrady. "That inspired me to create this dish using healthy and trendy kale." The mashed potatoes can be made ahead: Simply rewarm before serving (you can heat them in a casserole in the oven or in bowl set over simmering water).

Rustic Date and Apple Pastry

This easy date and apple dessert is another dish inspired by a royal retreat. "Sandringham House had its own apple orchard and would supply the royal kitchens," said McGrady. "This rustic twist on apple pie would be perfect for Sandringham royal picnics." And don't be afraid of the word "pastry" (which can be notoriously difficult to navigate) — the dough for this one is simply mixed by hand, rolled out and then shaped with your fingers — it's OK if it doesn't turn out perfect, remember it's supposed to look rustic!


How to make Cafe Rio Sweet Pork

I purchased pork carnitas from the store but you could use pork roast or shoulder. Just get the least expensive cut of pork you can find.

Then marinate the pork for a couple of hours in a can of coke and some brown sugar. You can use caffeine free Coke if you like but DO NOT use Diet Coke. After it marinades pour all of it into the crock pot and let it cook away.

About an hour before serving pull it out of the crockpot and shred it. Discard the liquid and put the meat back into the crock pot. Then add in the enchilada sauce.

Allow it to cook in the crockpot for another 30 -60 minutes. Then serve it along with cilantro lime rice and cafe rio black beans. Top it with a little Monterey Jack or cotija cheese and wrap it up in a tortilla for a delicious quick and easy meal.

It is also great in a taco or a quesadilla. Or my favorite way to eat it is in a Cafe Rio Sweet Pork Salad. I also have an Instant Pot Cafe Rio Pork recipe here.
