Product Snapshot: Just in time for the Royal Wedding, Harry & David has entered into an exclusive licensing agreement with The Royal Touch to create a new collection of gourmet baked goods from Carolyn Robb, former personal chef to the British Royal Family. Through the agreement, consumers across the United States can get a taste of the same sweet and savory cakes, desserts and breads that Carolyn served to the Royal Family for 11 years – all from the comfort of their own home!
After spending more than a decade cooking in extraordinary palaces and castles around the globe, Carolyn has shared her culinary expertise exclusively with Harry & David to create this never-before-available assortment of extravagant delicacies—many of which were Royal Family favorites.
