It is common and basic knowledge that the husband of Queen Margrethe II Prince Henrik loves good food. And most Danes are also aware that His Royal Highness knows something about gastronomy. But even in Denmark only few know him as a very creative gastronome, based in the French kitchen, which he renews and improves with inspiration from the world's exotic kitchens and what is left over from yesterday in his own refrigerator. This book contains recipes of royal meals including the Prince Consort's very personal comments and advice. The book also contains several chapters with His Royal Highness' very personal opinion about subjects like: Serving, refrigerators, how to compose a menu, wines, shopping for food, mustards, herbs and the joy of growing, collecting and shooting your own food.
