Description

The world jeered when the Emperor of Iran served roast peacock to celebrate the anniversary of his Empire; the White House chef threw a tantrum and resigned when asked to cook with frozen vegetables; Hitler was essentially a vegetarian; and, menus at the Buckingham Palace dinner table are written in French and not the Queen's English. Based on original menu-cards from the tables of kings, queens, emperors, empresses, presidents and princes, "Eating with Emperors" looks inside the kitchens of the world's leaders and looks at how cooking for our heads-of-state has changed over the past 150 years.show more
