Okay so this is kind of pricey for a slim volume, but the recipes are just awesome. Be prepared to spend quite a long on prep and finicking, but well worth it. An absolute must for anyone who likes to give dainty tea parties, but most of the recipes lend themselves to being canapes for pre dinner drinks also. A very versatile book, all the recipes work. The best of its kind in this genre. Have since purchased a copy for a friend's birthday. Would make a teriffic mother's day gift.
I was pleasantly surprise! For a small book it was packed full of wonderful recipes with pictures for all! Most recipes were easy to make and assemble, everything you could think of and then some ! A great price for so much information!
What a wonderful book! Full of beautiful photos, many recipes, even how to steep teas. I'm going to have much fun experimenting and trying out all these wonderful, tasty recipes! I have now found a new book to buy as gifts for my friends. Plus I'll enjoy spending hours going through and just looking/reading. Excellent book! (Can you tell I'm pleased with it?)
I have had four recipe books on Afternoon Tea, and this is by far the best. The recipes are wonderful, one of the scone recipes ("Cream Scones") is particularly wonderful The author uses cake flour, making the crumb so incredibly light and tender, it's definitely my new favorite scone recipe. The recipes are organized by holidays, which is not my favorite way to group them, but it's a very small book so it isn't that much trouble. There are a good mix of sweet and savory recipes, and lots of wonderful pictures to inspire you. The Mini Quiche Lorraine recipe is yummy. You can find lots of recipes in other books that can be adapted to mini-sizes for a tea party, but it's fun to have some great ideas about presentation and great recipes all in one little place. I really like it.
Even though the book isn't exactly what I expected, I have to say it is going to be a really useful tool. I'm hoping to start a "tea ministry." Sound strange? Well, years ago I was asked by a Community College to do a workshop on tea. It turned into a real joy and I actually had to do another one since they had such rave reviews. Now that I'm retired from the business world, I want to do things that will really make a difference. I remembered that workshop and thought it might inspire others to bring grace and hospitality back into their lives. This book will be a huge help!
This book is a must for anyone who likes not only tea but its presentation. Beautiful desserts to make to accompany the tea and parties. The pictures are beautiful and inspiring to plan a get-together immediately. Buy now.
This is a great book filled with delicious recipes and there are lots of beautiful ideas for table settings.
Lovely book full of pictures and information about tea and tea time treats. Many varied recipes .
