    tea & crumpets, Recipes & Rituals from European Tearooms and Cafes

    The title pretty much says it all. Nice book containing well written recipes with background information and beautiful photographs of the finished recipes. Nice assortment of recipes: some new or unusual; some tried and true; some savory; and some sweet. Information about various Tearooms in Europe interspersed throughout. Nice appendices in the back giving: 1) addresses, etc. of the tearooms and 2) sources for ingredients and equipment. Good index in the back. Comprehensive table of U.S. to metric equivalents after the index.
