Dinner Fit For A Queen!

I ran across something today and can't wait to share it with you!

If you've been reading for awhile you may remember I've already written a few articles about fine dining in America - like how we set a proper table here in the States, and the confusing number of eating utensils that rich people are fond of using.

But what I'm about to share makes my pitiful attempts pale in comparison to what's going on in Britain!

Thanks to a Twitter tweet by the British Royals, this article in The Daily Telegraph simply blows me away. It describes in minute detail how a state dinner at Buckingham Palace is organized and executed - step by painstaking step.

As mentioned in the last post we usually have three or four months notice before huge events or galas are scheduled around here - which gives us plenty of time to get our act together,

But can you imagine a state dinner that takes one full year in preparation? It gives me a headache just to think about it and makes me grateful I work for a simple-minded klutzy billionaire here in the States.

If you're the least bit interested in this kind of rigorous detail and grandeur, here's a link to the July 24, 2015 article in The Telegraph. It's absolutely absorbing in terms of history, social propriety, and the massive amount of work involved!

As always, thanks for dropping by this evening,



  1. I'll just breathe easy knowing I will likely never have to even attend something this crazy, much less prepare it.

    On a couple unrelated topic, this is the kind of thing I've decided I would do if I had the money: http://qz.com/477949/the-owner-of-the-miami-dolphins-just-made-drone-racing-a-million-dollar-sport/

    1. Never say never Ben. If you get rich racing drones you might find yourself at some pretty fancy tables! Thanks for checking in and hope you guys enjoy your skiing trip to Chile - while we suffer with the heat here in the States.
