Bossy cook Duchess Camilla

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall
Britain's Duchess of Cornwall is 'quite bossy' in the kitchen.
Camilla's son, food writer Tom Parker Bowles, loves his mother's cooking, but admits he doesn't like preparing food with her and won't make meals for her or his stepfather Prince Charles because the standard they are used to is so high.
He said: 'She is quite bossy in the kitchen, so I don't really cook with her. I certainly wouldn't cook for them because they have got proper chefs, really good chefs.
'She doesn't cook as much as she used to. When she is with my step-father [aka Prince Charles] they have brilliant chefs.
'But when she is at home by herself, let's say my stepfather is away or doing something by himself, going off on a mini-tour or something - then, when she is back home, yeah, she still does a roast chicken.'
Tom is a particular fan of his mother's egg and chicken dishes.
He is quoted by The Daily Beast as saying: 'She still does good scrambled eggs actually, really good scrambled eggs.
'She won't go out of her way to say to us children, 'Oh, come back I am doing roast chicken,' but if we ask for it, she will do it.'
