About the Author

Angel Adoree is the founder of The Vintage Patisserie, a popular vintage hosting company offering bespoke tea parties from a bygone era. Delivering music, makeovers and - of course - a customised menu of tea party treats that elevate any function into a swanky soiree. It has created unforgettable tea parties for famous clients including Paul Smith CBE, Myleene Klass, and Kim Jones to name but a few! Angel was the outstanding character on BBC Two's series 'Dragons' Den'. She has grown up with great determination, a skill for creativity and has taught herself strong business acumen - she ticked all the boxes with the dragons and became the face of the series. Angel's eye for beautiful things started at a young age, and by the age of thirteen she was buying vintage clothes and gems. A market stall followed and when the stall couldn't quell the tide of treasure, Angel moved to a big converted school house in Bethnal Green. It was here in 2001 that the launch of 'The Vintage Experience' took place, where Angel opened her doors to her devotees and revealed rail upon rail of vintage delights, and offered advice and hand-picked gems that were just right for her clients - as well as providing them with delicious cakes! The Vintage Experience lasted for seven years and when this brand could grow no more, the Vintage Patisserie was born! Angel's business has grown from strength to strength and this year saw the opening for her new East London event space, Vintage Hair Academy and Vintage Hospitality school. Angel's first book The Vintage Tea Party Book was shortlisted for the Galaxy National Book Awards 2011 for Food Book of the Year.

I had seen this book reviewed on a few blogs, and being a tea-lover and things of vintage nature, I decided to pick up my own copy.

First, the setup is very simple, and effective. Each section has recipes (except the Style section), tips, and beautiful and whimsical illustrations and photographs. There are even a couple of D-I-Y's and invitation templates you can photocopy, in addition to a copy-able stencil of the Queen.

The book is quite thick, with a ribbon bookmark attached and the cover and binding is very sturdy, and the pages are thick paper making tears a little less likely.

Now, the author is British, so all the measurements are in Metric for the recipes, my only real qualm about the book is that it does not include the US conversions for the ingredients (but not a huge deal, just break out a conversion table or a calculator).

I'm glad that I picked this book up, it's a very beautiful book that multitasks and will give you a few new and good ideas that you wouldn't have had otherwise.

I love this book. I wasn't convinced at first that there's a book's worth of advice on throwing tea parties, but the author interprets the term loosely enough that there's more than plenty. Along with recipes for afternoon-tea favorites like biscuits and scones, there are also sections on brunch and evening tea-parties, complete with recipes for things like coddled eggs and tea-infused martinis. There are also pages of craft ideas, table settings, templates for invitations and thank-you notes, aprons, placemats, hairstyles...you get he picture. Basically like a really good vintage shop inside of two covers. Would make a lovely gift for anyone attracted to the quirkily retro.

I love, love, love this book. Quirky, classy and kitschy all at once, the recipes are great and so are the many recommendations on vintage living. I would love to work for the tea company! Not just a book about tea, but lifestyle, hair, clothing and parties. It is my favorite!

This book provides a fun approach to hosting a tea party. It's not your typical formal tea party. The author provides instructions for funky decorations, invitations, etc. to make your tea party unique. I haven't had a chance to try any of the recipes but they look delicious!

This book features food recipes and tons of cocktail recipes and other tea party ideas such as decorating and vintage hairstyles, etc. The recipes are traditional and effective. The scone & tea sandwich recipes rock. Lots of recipes from sweets to savories and not just savory tea sandwiches but also savory pies, etc. A totally fun and charming book. I bought some for my friends who enjoy afternoon tea and they LOVE it.

Just to note, there are party ideas for breakfast tea and dinner tea - with corresponding recipes. Looking forward to a dinner tea service soon.

We saw this book at Epcot in the UK section and flipped through it. Whether we ever have an actual tea party or not, it's a joy to read through and just imagine. Plus, there are plenty of dessert, breakfast, appetizer and sandwich ideas and decorating ideas which can be used for any party or regular meal,
