Nice historical information on the dishes for recipes included in the book, as well as the palaces.
I thought this was a book for hosting tea parties, but it's a book on etiquette for hosting many differnt types of parties.
There were a few recipes of foods I thought were worth trying. Other's seems a bit time consuming.
The book did make me want an estate manager, i.e. butler!

The book is very nicely presented. The information is interesting along with very nice photographs. But it wasn't the book on entertaining I was expecting and etiquette. It is just a little bit of the information I was seeking. It has some good recipes for different occasions, how to fold napkins and make floral arrangements.

Not very interesting at all. Felt like he was simply cashing in on Princess Diana. Thankfully I borrowed the book from the library.
