Private Event Host: “Royal Chef” Darren McGrady

Idyllic British Isles

“Royal Chef” Darren McGrady will serve as Private Event host on the June 19, 2015, departure of Idyllic British Isles.  Chef Darren was personal chef to Queen Elizabeth II; Diana, Princess of Wales; and Princes William and Harry for 15 years. He will attend Windstar’s Private Event at Picton Castle, a 13th century castle reserved for Windstar guests to explore while enjoying appetizers, sparkling wine, and music from a Welsh choir. 

Back on board that evening, Chef Darren will prepare a three course “royal feast” for guests, taking time before each course to explain his selections and techniques while telling stories from his time cooking at Buckingham Palace. Additionally, Chef Darren will host an afternoon tea on board during the sailing, answering guests’ questions and sharing his favorite recipes and cookbook.
