You do need a food processor for many of the recipes, as tea sandwiches often use a pureed filling, and the assembly required for most is not for the faint at heart. You need time and dedication to carry out most of these, although some quick breads, cookies and sandwiches are an exception. But if it's an impressive spread you want, this book is a great buy. (I have other tea-time books that are bigger, more lavish, much more expensive, and not near as useful as this one!)
snacks & sandwiches: 8 recipes / scones, crumpets & tea breads: 9 recipes / simple cakes & cookies: 8 recipes / tarts, puddings & ice creams: 9 recipes / iced teas & hot tonics: 8 recipes / easy spreads: 8 recipes
The recipes are easy and delicious, it's a great bargain, and it makes a nice gift. One of my favorite tea books!
I had heard of Sally Lunn bread and Welsh Rabbit and here is a recipe that combines both. And the gingerbread cake brings back memories when my mother used to bake us gingerbread cakes.
You can pick this little book at gift shops, gourmet food shops as well as bookstores. Can stand with the best of my tea accessory books.
The attempt at wit does not quite work (and the clever and wry comments should always be a staple of a book about British cuisine.) The author seems to be trying to laugh at American insular ways, but it is a bit too 'folksy' to be funny.
The sampling of recipes is a nice introduction to afternoon tea (though I would shudder to think anyone would accept the author's suggestion of allowing the substitution of sparkling water or lemonade for tea - is nothing sacred?) :) The sandwich selection is small but very inexpensive and quick to prepare. Baking selections, including several varieties of scones, are more diverse and should satisfy those with a love for the art.
This is by no means a book for the tea afficianado, but I have given it a four star rating because it is a very good value.
