Kellogg’s partnered with former Royal Chef, Darren McGrady to give breakfast a posh makeover. I had the chance to try some of the cereal-centric, regal-inspired, recipes at a recent media-event and can guarantee they will delight your guests!

I’m a cereal lover, and it was amazing to see how versatile some of my favourite cereals could be in elevated cuisine. Chef McGrady was the personal chef to the royal household for fifteen years. Now he helps us home chefs entertain with a regal touch with inspiration from his popular cookbooks: “Eating Royally: Recipes and Remembrances from a Palace Kitchen” and “The Royal Chef at Home“.

The following recipes feature a range of Kelloggs’s cereals in ways I had never considered would yield such delicious final products! The menu was inspired by the Royal Wedding festivities but I’m going to be making some of these dishes long after the  wedding buzz has dissipated. They’re that good!

DIY Fascinators 

Crafting more your thing? Kellogg’s partnered with Kelly Dempsey, former Project Runway contestant to create DIY fancy fascinators. Your guests won’t believe they’re made from cereal boxes! What an awesome idea to repurpose a common household item in such a fun way. There are how-to videos on the Kellogg Canada Facebook Page.

    Wow amazing what you can do with cereal, including a lemon and elderflower cake, which is the flavour for tomorrow’s cake. This week I have been eating a lemon and elderflower cake from Iceland, see post from earlier in the week, for more details.

    1. That cake looked pretty good! For sure it could be jazzed up with some fresh flowers. Too bad the sponge was average. I know I was pleasantly surprised too to find out how much more I could do with cereal. The ‘royal pudding’ was my favourite!
