Editorial Reviews

Review

“Tracy Stern’s inimitable style and grace are apparent in every page of this book. She has given a modern and distinctive twist to the art of the tea party.”
–François Payard, chef-owner, Payard Pâtisserie and Bistro

“I had the privilege to be invited by Tracy for afternoon tea and was fascinated by her knowledge of and passion for the subject. I love this book because it lets you bring all of that knowledge and passion into your own home with wonderful teatime menus of sweet and savory delights.”
–Daniel Boulud, chef-restaurateur

“High tea has been high fashion since the delicate damsels of the dixhuitième-century dressed up to drink the delicious brew. Leave it to the very stylish Tracy Stern to revive and re-dress that most civilized pastime.”
–Iris Barrel Apfel, style iconoclast

Tea Party offers fun, delicious ideas for every possible occasion. With great tips and tricks, Tracy knows how to turn a simple tea party into a fabulous event. Readers will love her advice, her tone, and the results!”
–Jane Buckingham, author of The Modern Girl’s Guide to Life and The Modern Girl’s Guide to Motherhood

Tea Party is an incomparable celebration of surprising delights. From patio to dining room, my friend Tracy divinely weaves a tapestry of grace and fun. The ancients called tea one of the seven necessities to begin the day. This book is the eighth.”
–Stuart Avery Gold, former COO of The Republic of Tea and author of Ping: A Frog in Search of a New Pond

“The luxury of afternoon tea is one of life’s great pleasures. Who better than Tracy Stern to reinvent an afternoon ritual and take an eighteenth-century tradition to new heights; from classic to Moroccan, this book covers it all!”
–Colin Cowie, author of Colin Cowie’s Extraordinary Weddings

I just can't say enough about this book. It's a wonderful reference for anyone wanting to have "real" tea parties. It is full of recipes, tips and tons of information about tea parties. The author is obviously very passionate and well educated about her subject.

I love this book. I can see why the dissapointment from others, but it has great ideas, which allows you to be creative with her suggestions for table settings, invitations, etc. I would have loved more pictures of the recipes, but still recommend the book.

Format: Hardcover
I host regular themed and non-themed morning or afternoon teas. I am always on the lookout for books that provide inspiration (and keep adding to my 400plus-cookbook collection). First, the idea of a cookbook with themed teas is hardly new. Second, while the pictures in this book are lovely, and certainly inspirational, the variety of foods served at Ms Stern's teas is disappointingly low. Also, with details on decor, etc, the impression one gets is of a "paint by numbers" party. For some people that spoils all the fun of using the imagination. I would recommend instead "Afternoon Tea" by Susannah Blake (great pictures, good recipes) or books by Bruce and Shelley Richardson (so-so pictures, fantastic recipes).

This book is ravishing to look at...with great ideas for hosting your own tea party...although the themes are based around tea, these are not just parties for ladies...there is a Russian Tea, a Graduation Tea, a Winter Tea etc. The author provides great ideas for your tablescape, and other tips such as appropriate flowers, centerpieces and music. The recipes are elegant and fairly unusual...brownies made with vanilla tea...yum! THe pictures are stunning.This book is a worthwile addition to your cookbook collection.

A lovely, glossy book - but disappointing. The author talks too much about herself. Many of the tea party ideas include store bought goodies instead of recipes. Pretty but mostly fluff.

I love all the different themes for tea parties, and they are not all so "fancy." The recipes look delicious and most of it easy to do. The pictures are so beautiful. It's inspiring just to look at.
