Chocolate Fit For A Queen: Delectable Chocolate Recipes is a delicious little treat of a book! It offers more than 40 mouth-watering recipes inspired by the historic chocolate kitchens of England's favorite royal palaces.
In fact, Hampton Court Palace has its own Chocolate Court which was created for King William III who liked to drink a hot chocolate for breakfast to set him up for a busy day at court!
Stirred into the mix is a fascinating history of royal chocolate, written by Historic Royal Palaces curator Polly Putnam. She traces the journey of the cocoa bean from its ancient origins as Central American currency to its introduction to the English royal court, where the Stuarts and then Georgian royals and their couriers enjoyed this luxurious treat.
The introduction of this lovely book is by Lucy Worsley, Chief Curator of Historic Royal Palaces. (You may also recognize her from the many popular British royal history programs she hosts that are seen on PBS stations and the BBC.)
You will find this lovely book full of exquisite chocolate recipes truly Fit for a Queen.
