TEA TIME TUESDAY AND A GREAT BAKING COOKBOOK: The Sono Baking Company Cookbook

Today is Tea Time Tuesday and I want to recommend a wonderful new baking cookbook.  This one is an absolute must have if you want to improve your baking and pastry chef skills!



John Barricelli is a VERY EXPERIENCED 3rd generation baker, teacher and featured chef.  Actually this list could go on and on.
Martha Stewart has much to say and on going praises about John in the foreward of this cookbook.





I am also sharing this Victorian silver plated creamer, sugar and waste that I purchased many years ago - you noticed the "B"- right?  The teapot is not original to the set but goes nicely.  Does anyone know why the antique pieces from Germany are what I would call "left handed"?  I have noticed that on a number of pieces.....

Now just a few scenes from the cookbook:




John shares his "best" lemon bars and "best ever" brownies in the book!



More than 1/2 of the recipes in this book could translate right into your Afternoon Tea menu.  Everything from scones to Creme Brulee Tartlets to Tea Cakes.  There are also savory scones, trifle, muffins and crostatas.

A wonderful book, Bernideen! Those photos say it all and have my mouth watering! Yum!! I love your silver tea service; especially adorned with the "B." The tea pot does indeed go well with the set! Thanks for sharing today. As always, it's a pleasure to stop by for tea. Have a beautiful day.

Blessings,
Sandi

Hi Bernideen
That is a mystery as to why pieces are left handed; they are nice though.
I always like to see what books you feature and make a wish list of ones I'd like for gifts.
