3 weeks later...Hi all, Here are some corrections to Alice's Tea Cup's new tea book...I made the pumpkin scones; they were extremely over-spiced. When I first read the recipe, the quantities of the spices sounded wrong, so I called them. A gentleman insisted the 1/4 cup each of cinnamon and ginger was the correct amount. I doubted it, but decided to give them a try since he verified the recipe. Well, the scones were totally unpalatable and I threw out the whole batch. A sad waste of money:(
This morning, I called again and tracked down the cook who actually makes the scones. She said she uses only 1 teaspoon each of the cinnamon and the ginger. I asked about any other recipe corrections and she said the curried chicken sandwiches should have chopped red apple in the recipe.
Despite the corrections, I still believe it's a book that most will enjoy, as I do. The curried chicken recipe is very good. I found you can get away without dry rubbing and baking the chicken. I made it again with leftover roasted chicken to which I added equal amounts of mayo, sour cream, and apricot preserves. Then I chopped up celery, red onion, sliced almonds and dried apricots and added those in. Finally I sprinkled on sea salt, fresh ground pepper and curry to taste. It was delicious. Alice's cook told me they add in chopped red apple so I'll do that next time.
Another update...I made the pumpkin scones with the 1 tsp each of the spices and they turned out great. Don't miss the topping, it truly adds to the scone. I had extra topping so I refrigerated it. To use it on something else, I warmed it on a very low heat and added a few spoonfuls of heavy cream...Oh my, how delicious, and it reheated really well.
It makes me wonder how many other recipes I'm going to go through that might have mistakes, and what the cost of them could be to the consumer who purchased the book trusting the outcome would be correct according to the recipes paid for by buying the book. I think the integrity of the book is at stake when already 2 mistakes have been found and the book just came out.
On the positive side.. this might very well mean they really did give out their real recipe which most establishments don't usually do. They change something. But since they have to bake these in bulk, I am guessing that 1/4 cup of ginger and cinnamon was actually the amount in their bulk recipe before it was reduced for home baking. The scary part is the reviewer who called talked to someone who confirmed the book was correct, and lucky for her she knew in her gut it still had to be wrong (after knowing they were inedible!) and finally ended up talking to the baker and found out it really was a mistake.)
Note to self: Always check reviews on Amazon BEFORE I start baking out of any book. At least I would know if there were any mistakes already found that needed correction before wasting my time and money. :) And.. I would know which recipes were the most successful to start with!
If you love this restaurant (or brunch or tea or dessert for that matter), you'll love this book!
There are several scone recipes that start the book off, including the famous pumpkin scones with an interesting sounding caramel glaze. Then we get into breakfast recipes: pancakes, waffles, granola, hash, and omelet. Next are soups and salads. Then sandwiches, including the cheeseburger and a Rueben. The third of the sandwich recipes that could be made into tea sandwiches are not incredibly original: an egg salad, two chicken salads, ham and cheese, cucumber and watercress...the exception being the carrot and cumin. Cookies, then cakes and cupcakes, and other sweets and treats are fine chapters. I must admit that the Peanut Butter Ganache Cake and the Blueberry Lemon Cake both look delicious. The "Mar-tea-nis" chapter is very original.
To sum up, I was looking for a book with new ideas for filling tea sandwiches, and other dainty tea-time fare, and this book did not deliver.
They're in the oven right now, so yet to know if they taste half way decent. I used the 1/4 c. of cinnamon and 1/4 c. of ginger and seemed to be fine with 3 c. of flour.
Definitely not delectable!!
