Tea at the Palace
50 Delicious Recipes for Afternoon Tea
by Carolyn Robb
One of the highlights of my Junior Year Abroad was having afternoon tea at Sally Lunn’s in Bath. In those days, it was an indulgence that I could barely afford. But, there is something about a true afternoon tea that is so appealing that it was pounds well spent.
Anglophiles, tea lovers, bakers and others are sure to enjoy this title on that iconic British ritual. There are fifty recipes here organized by royal residences. These include Buckingham Palace, Sandringham House, Kensington Palace, Hampton Court Palace, Brighton Pavilion, Highgrove House and Blenheim Palace, among many others.. A recipe from each of those listed: Apple Scones with Raspberries and Clotted Cream; Bramble and Apple Jam with Cinnamon; Jam Pennies; Chocolate and Salted Pistachio Cookies; Almond Cake; Lemon and Thyme Cake; and Caramel Apple Turnovers. Again, there are many more from Balmoral, Windsor, Kew and others. My mouth waters just thinking about these recipes .
Note: The author worked as a royal chef so is perfectly credentialed.
I am no kitchen whiz but this book is fun to look at, even if I may never attempt most of the recipes. I enjoyed the photos of the food, the garden parties, the sites and more.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Quarto=White Lion for this title. All opinions are my own.
