Last night I sat at the kitchen table and read through this wonderful tea book. I loved the creativity and "common sense approach" to everything! This is the story of a family unit who have succeeded in business in New York City. That is a big accomplishment! I especially like all the trivia personal information that proceeds the recipes! Personality!
I had seen a discussion on Afternoon Tea Across American back in the fall regarding how much ginger and cinnamon were in their Pumpkin Scones so I will be making these myself to form my own opinion. I really enjoyed reading their recipes and their philosophy about tea and their tea room. Their style is whimsical and fun.
Late note: An email from
Julie and Becky says:
I just bought this cookbook for my Kindle, and I noticed in the reviews sections that there are some mistakes in the Pumpkin Scone recipe and the Chicken Salad. Instead of 1/4 cup! of the cinnamon and ginger, 1 teaspoon each of the cinnamon and the ginger. The curried chicken sandwiches should have chopped red apple in the recipe.
The three tearooms aren't just about tea by the way - but a place where activities abound and a lovely luncheon with creative salads and sandwiches are served to those who aren't into Afternoon Tea.
