Darren McGrady was personal chef to the Queen Elizabeth II, Diana Princess of Wales and Princes’ William and Harry for fifteen years and has cooked for five US Presidents. Now local company Hail Merry Snacks, along with the chef, author, culinary consultant, event planner, public speaker and Dallas resident, wants to give Dallas’ finest the royal treatment. McGrady’s most recent claim to fame is the fact that H.R.H. Prince William selected the Chocolate Biscuit Cake recipe from his book for his wedding cake! It was a favorite of both Prince William and his grandmother, and The Queen would request the cake in the menu book for Sunday tea when she knew her grandson would be joining her from Eton.
Royal Dinner Fantasy Includes the following for Fourteen People:
• A private dinner for fourteen prepared by The Royal Chef at the home of Dallas’ own royalty, Pat and Emmitt Smith.
• The Royal Treatment includes five amazing courses.
• Specially selected wines by Mark Russo of Angel’s Share International & The Black Bottle Winery, Napa.
• Cordials while McGrady shares heartwarming stories about Princess Diana and her boys
• The use of the Queen Mum’s 1967 White Daimler (designed for the British monarchy) during the dinner party
