The National Trust Book of Afternoon Tea


The National Trust Book of Afternoon Tea

Description

From cucumber sandwiches to jam and scones, this comprehensive cookery book from the National Trust is chock full of recipes that go perfectly with a cup of tea.

Afternoon tea is the quintessential British ritual. And with over 100 tearooms across the country, the National Trust knows a thing or two about it.

This gift-sized guide has delicious recipes for savory and sweet treats, whether you're looking for a lively party, the last word in elegance or a hearty winter tea by the fire.

From sandwiches and tarts to cakes, scones, macaroons and preserves - some are classic, some have a twist, such as cucumber sandwiches with minted cream cheese, toasted farmhouse bread with anchovy butter, the classic Victoria sponge, brandysnaps or scones.

Plus there's everything you need to know to brew the perfect pot of tea (not to mention the odd cocktail and bowl of punch).

Food historian Laura Mason also includes some fascinating and amusing historical recipes that reveal how afternoon tea was taken in times gone by and the origins of some of our beloved dishes.
