Overview

"There are few hours in life more agreeable," observed Henry James, "than the hour dedicated to the ceremony of afternoon tea." Few visitors to the British Isles would disagree with this sentiment. In her delightful book, Jane Pettigrew presents an array of tempting tea-time recipes from Britain's National Trust properties: Plum Loaf, Cut and Come Again Cake, Herb Bread, Cherry Scones, Almond Apricot Shortcake, Ripon Christmas Bread, and Chelsea Buns, to name but a few. She has also discovered numerous examples of curious and ornate teaware as well as tales of bizarre tea parties, such as the one at which all the guests were treated to a haircut by the local postman. A thoroughly charming companion for tea lovers. Jane Pettigrew, an authority on tea and tea history, is also the author of Tea, Tea and Infusion, Coffee, From Grandmother with Love, Juicing It!, and In the Victorian Kitchen.
