Candied Ginger and Green Tea Bread
Eat Tea is a fun cookbook that includes a wide assortment of unique recipes. I've made several of the recipes in the book, including Green Fruits in Jasmine Tea Syrup. This is such a tasty recipe, and very pretty as it uses green fruits, kiwi, honeydew melon, green grapes, and fresh mint with a lovely jasmine infused sugar syrup glaze. So refreshing! When we held our Cooking With Tea Dinner at the tea room in 2005, I also prepared the Savory Swirls that are in this book. My notes, written alongside the recipe, say that it was easy, a do-ahead recipe, and had a very good tea flavor. Sounds like one I need to make again! Another tasty recipe from this book, also served at the Cooking With Tea Dinner, is the Pear, Gorgonzola, and Watercress Salad. It has a tea vinaigrette that complements the sweet pears and tangy cheese. My note, 'popular'. Needless to say, of the recipes I have tried from the book Eat Tea, they have been successful.
