Blue Cheese & Grapefruit
All citrus fruits have a sweet-tart tropical taste
that goes great with salty cheeses. But grapefruit
and blue cheese are the best match of all: Both
share a bitter streak that helps them blend
together on the tongue. Put a few grapefruit
wedges on greens and top with blue cheese for a
salad that’s a knockout.
On average, it takes
to get through a single-
scoop ice cream cone.

William and Kate are young and
vibrant. I’d go American food all the
way Since we’re all about variety
here, I would serve some of our best
ingredients—whole, spit-roasted ducks
and pigs glazed all over with honey and
vinegar—and set up a grilling bar to do
blackened shrimp, fish and vegetables.

Well, you have to serve pigs
in blankets. Oh, sure, everyone thinks,
“Royal wedding…must be fancy.” I’ve
been to parties everywhere from the
White House to my house. Everyone
loves pigs in blankets. Of course,
always curtsy when serving them.

We would turn our cupcakes into a
tower—it’d have to be regal, a 10-foot-
high, layered cupcake pyramid with
a different flavor for each layer (one
would be english toffee). We’d add
ornate piping and fondant designs, and
present them in royal blue gift boxes
with William and Kate’s monogram!
