traditional Afternoon Tea

Boldly announcing it is a delicious collection of teatime treats, this 'new to me' book was written by Martha Day and published in England in 2012. It also notes it was previously published as The Perfect Afternoon Tea Book.

It is a beautiful book, full of gorgeous photography that inspires me to create an afternoon tea! The chapters include savory buns & scones, preserves & spreads, sandwiches, tea breads & cakes, and biscuits, tarts & sweet scones. The measurements for the ingredients are written in imperial and metric measures and standard cup and teaspoon measures. That's a plus!

I love a new cookbook, and I'm happy to add this one to my collection. The cheese muffins looks tasty, the sandwich horns look like fun, the lavender cake is certainly something we would serve here. Available on Amazon, I added it to up my order total so I could get free shipping. They know what they are doing!

Sounds like a good one.

I have the 1997 version of that book and love it for two reasons: 1) It contains a favorite, never-fail madeleine recipe and 2) I just adore that pink striped tea set! I rather envision the tea sets of Heaven looking like this one!
