Only the most hardened dieter can resist the pleasures of afternoon tea. 
Its enjoyment, whether it is a simple slice of home-baked cake or dainty sandwiches followed by scones oozing with jam and cream, is part of our culture and is a tradition acted out each and every day in tearooms up and down the country.
This then is the perfect book for all tea-time lovers with over 100 recipes chosen by the un-crowned queen of British cookery, Marguerite Patten and is published as a tribute to and celebration of Marguerite's 90th year.
There are recipes for cakes, breads, biscuits, sandwiches and savories from England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland as well as recipes from tea times around the world.
But tea time isn't tea time without a pot of tea so the book also traces the history of our national beverage with a guide to all the different blends and styles available.

  •     I recently ordered this book to prepare a high tea for my mother's birthday. The book is very nice with chapters ranging from the history of tea, styles and customs of teas traditional and modern, eras of teatime and how to choose teas. The recipes include Britain's time honored favorites for sweets, savories and tea recipes including how to make tea ice cream. It's a lovely present and I want one for myself. I can't wait to try the recipes and am very glad they are not too sweet. Not all Americans enjoy super sweet desserts that are unpleasant to the palate and bad for your waistline!
  •     Tea history and traditions are briefly explained, as well as regional differences in tea consumption along with regional recipes. The recipes are mostly European, however, and aren't the super-sweet dessert-type tea accompaniments many Americans may expect.
