From 1987 to 1990, Enrico Derflingher had one of the biggest responsibilities at Kensington Palace. The then 27-year-old chef worked as a personal chef to the British royal family and in that time he managed to create a dish that went on to become the family's favorite.
More than 15 years later, Chef Derflingher sat down with Country Living to chat about his other high profile jobs including cooking for president George Bush in the 1990s and the food preferences of the royal family.
In his interview, the michelin-star chef revealed that some of his favorite memories was working for the Queen and the experience has influenced some of his later creations and aided in his success as a consultant chef in CastaDiva Resort and Spa.
So what about the royal family's favorite dish? It's the Queen Victoria Risotto!
