Description de l'ouvrage

12 janvier 2006
Taking tea is one of the quintessentially English occasions, and who is a greater authority on the subject than the sumptuous Ritz London Hotel? This charming Edwardian-style book captures the essence of this traditional British pastime, and provides us with all the expertise on the ceremony as well as the recipes. Stories about the legendary afternoon teas at The Ritz and fascinating details about the history of tea drinking are complemented with passages from such diverse writers as Charles Dickens to Oscar Wilde. Over fifty recipes are included for different kinds of afternoon tea specialities, from delicate sandwiches, strawberry shortcake and rose petal jam, to crumpets and muffins for hearty teas in front of a roaring fire. The author gives an infallible guide to the many blends of tea and their suitability to particular occasions. Beautifully presented and delightfully illustrated, this book is the perfect gift for tea drinkers everywhere.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 For the past 11 years its one of my favorites! 27 mai 2004
Par Elizebeth Neumann - Publié sur
I started hosting tea parties when I was 15. I would get up at 6:00 am and start baking and cook until 2-3 and then the feast would be ready. This book was the first "tea book" I bought.
I have to admit I was lucky that I bought this book because I wasnt a great cook (I was 15) and I didnt know what I was doing. This book has wonderful recipes that are easy to follow and most are simple to make....and delicious!
Now that Ive been doing this tea thing for almost 12 years I have many different books on the subject. But this one is the most used, its covered in flour and it contains some of my favorite recipes.
A few of the standout recipes in my opinon are, rock cakes, madelines, victoria sandwich, welsh rarebit and meruinges. You wont be dissapointed in this book. The size is small but its jam-packed with goodies!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Nice book. 2 mai 2004
Par WhatTheDormouseSaid - Publié sur
This is a nice little primer on teas, including a history of tea, tea through the ages, and of course recipes.
The recipes are given in both metric and "American" measures. Most of the recipes I tried worked such as scones, drop scones, gingerbread, potted shrimp, devilled ham on toast rounds, the "english" muffins, crumpets, lemon curd, rock cakes (no they don't contain rocks!), the Dundee cake and most of the savoury recipes. A few did not such as the Madeira cake and the Victoria Sponge.
All in all it's a nice little book.

Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I've recently bought 4 different tea books and this is the best one I have so far. There are a lot of the expected recipes for traditional tea time fare, with some minor omissions I felt. The print left something to be desired, some of it was blurred, but if you just want to buy 1 English tea book, this is it.

Par Un client - Publié sur
This delightful volume captures the charm of the ceremony of afternoon tea, from the glamor of taking tea at the Ritz to the coziness of taking tea by the fire with the curtains drawn against the blustery day. Literary quotations, historical anecdotes, recipes for all the best delicacies served at tea, tips on tea-making, and lovely line-drawings make this book a must for tea-lovers and Anglophiles. It is a treasure to have.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Best Resource for Tradition as well as Recipes! 9 août 2006
Par JSS - Publié sur
A friend and I have recently begun taking tea and we love the true British and Victorian style of tea houses. I wanted to find a book for her that was a great resource on the history of afternoon and high tea as well as providing some recipes to go along with the information. This was the best book I found. No other goes into as much detail about the history of tea that this book does. The only downfall is that the only illustrations in the book are line drawings. There are no photos. Still, that didn't keep me from picking this book over several others that did have nice pictures, because in the end, the content of this book superceded any other.
