Overview
-

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.
