Imagine a table laden with homemade scones and muffins, freshly made sandwiches and savouries, biscuits and cookies, cakes and pastries of all varieties, and seasonal fruit jams. Afternoon tea is a perfect treat, to be enjoyed by everyone whenever you can, not just a ritual for high days and holidays. This delightful recipe book presents 200 delicious dishes to serve for afternoon tea. It opens with a brief history of afternoon tea traditions and etiquette. A guide to specialty teas of the world follows, and of course information on how to choose, blend and make the perfect cup of tea. There are recipes suitable for traditional high tea, family afternoon tea, teatime celebrations or an indulgent get-together – and recipes to suit the different seasons, as well as to suit different appetites. All the well-known classics such as Victoria sponge, chocolate cake, pavlova, and fruit tarts are included, and of course savouries such as sausage rolls, mini quiches, cheese puffs and more. Learn how to make your own crumpets, English muffins, teacakes and preserves. Enjoy classic cucumber sandwiches, mouthwatering chocolate eclairs, and malty fruit teabreads. Whether you are planning an alfresco tea in the sun or tucked up by the fire after a winter walk, this collection of delights – beautifully photographed throughout – is a must for all teatime lovers.

The ultimate teatime recipe collection, with an introductory guide to preparing and serving the perfect afternoon tea, along with all the family favourites you’d expect to find.
