In the Royal Manner: Expert Advice on Etiquette and Entertaining from the Former Butler to Diana, Princess of Wales Reviews
Leider nicht das, was der Titel verspricht, sondern vor allem ein Kochbuch. Ansonsten: Durchaus interessant und lehrreich. Auch die Bilder sind schön und hilfreich. aber mehr über das Protokoll wäre spannend gewesen.
The information in this book is interesting and well presented, but there is not nearly as much information about entertaining with style as I hoped. I didn't expect personal information about Princess Diana but I did expect to learn more about how things are done in a stately home. If that is what you are looking for, I'd look elsewhere. If you want small insights into Princess Diana's life, then buy this by all means.
This is a beautiful book with good recipes (although a warning: measurements are English style, not American); but I found myself wishing for more personal remembrances of the princess and her family. Obviously, Burrell is respecting the memory of Diana, and that's good, but couldn't he have found a happy medium?
Snippets of Royal history with bits of inside info on the establishment - along with the most delicious recipes- you will want to try them all. You don`t have to be a florist to make any of his flower arrangements. A book for anyone and everyone.
Mr. Paul Burrell managed to write a wonderful book with some great information if you entertain .. or if you are a Butler. What I like about it is that Mr. Burrell did not write one of those "tell all" books about Diana, Princess of Wales. For that reason he earned my respect. As Chairman of The International Guild of Professional Butlers I know that there are those who would sell their story. I know that Mr. Burrell was offered an enourmous amount of money but he refused! Good for him. And Yes, his book is absolutely wonderful.
I was extremely skeptical about this book, but it is really super. Great recipes, and entertaining ideas. This is not a book about Princess Diana although she is refered in it, but it a wonderful source in the finer points in dinning. Definately worth it if you do any sort of formal entertaining!
Simple advice and delightful recepies for all occasions.
