Betty Thornton has had a passion for cooking all her life. She details her experience as a cook during the Second World War and, later in life, her days cooking for royalty. Brought up originally in Leeds, Thornton moved all over the country during her career as a cook. With humour and attention to detail she recounts tales of creating wonderful Christmas decorations out of household items as a child. She pursued her creativity when she entered Bradford College of Art and Textile Design, but later found her calling as a cook. The highlight of her extremely varied career was during her time at Broadlands, when she cooked for the Queen. . . and even Prince Charles and Diana on the first three days of their honeymoon. The amusing lead-up to these events and the fascinating insights that they afforded the author make for an intriguing read.
