Former Royal Chef Who Cooked For the Queen and Princess Di Now Based Right Here in Dallas

          Chef Darren McGrady has cooked for the royal family of the United Kingdom for 15 years, but more recently he has lived and worked in Dallas for years now. has summed it up nicely in the short article attached to a video they did with him published on April 7th  where he recreated the Queen’s favorite birthday cake. It reads:

Darren McGrady was the personal chef to Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip, Princess Diana, Prince Charles, and Princes William and Harry—a family with notoriously specific food needs—for 15 years. In 1998, he moved to the U.S.A. where he wrote best-selling cookbooks and founded Eating Royally, a fine-dining catering service based in Dallas, TX.” 


          The Dallas Morning News also picked up on this story in an article published July 9th. In it they say: 


The Dallas-based chef, who once doted on Di, is now delivering his food to Southlake, beginning Tuesday, July 14. ‘The Dallas area has really taken off with our drop-off menu and we are now expanding it,’ McGrady said. Whether it’s watermelon salad with arugula, feta and mint dressing or lemon parmesan chilean sea bass, McGrady’s preparations are nods to his experience cooking for royalty and fine-dining tradition. At $41.50 per entree (which includes a choice from one of five salads), they also offer variety for at-home diners stuck in a culinary rut.”


           If you fancy yourself a decent enough home cook, maybe you’d like to try your hand at some of Chef Darren’s recipes yourself so you have something to snack on while you binge Season 4 of The Crown. D Magazine has an article published in the March-April edition of D Home magazine, now available online with 3 recipes from Darren McGrady. In it they say: 


Get your Brit fix with a proper tea party. Chef Darren McGrady, caterer and owner of Eating Royally, brings us three recipes for tea sandwiches. (Before moving to Dallas, McGrady fired up the kitchens of Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, Sandringham House, and Balmoral Castle, just to name a few jewels in his crown.)”


          Here’s hoping Chef Darren has many more happy and successful years right here in Dallas (since clearly, in his mind, it’s a lovely place to work after Buckingham Palace.)
