Romance is in the air and all over the airwaves now that Prince William and ‘Kate’ are engaged. If you were planning perhaps the most celebrated wedding of the decade, what would you serve? I asked Royal Chef Darren McGrady what he would serve at the Royal Wedding. Keep in mind, he’s Queen Elizabeth’s former chef, and he was also king of the kitchen at Kensington Palace for Princess Diana and the boys.
He knows the royals very well, and he documents many of his adventures in a fabulous cookbook called Eating Royally. Chef McGrady agreed to share his incredible recipe for a tenderloin steak with a delectable Burgundy chocolate sauce.
Try the Pan Seared Beef Tenderloin with Chocolate Burgundy Sauce recipe for yourself.
