READING "ALICE'S TEA CUP" COOKBOOK




Last night I sat at the kitchen table and read through this wonderful tea book.  I loved the creativity and "common sense approach" to everything!  This is the story of a family unit who have succeeded in business in New York City. That is a big accomplishment! I especially like all the trivia personal information that proceeds the recipes!  Personality!












I had seen a discussion on Afternoon Tea Across American back in the fall regarding how much ginger and cinnamon were in their Pumpkin Scones so I will be making these myself to form my own opinion.  I really enjoyed reading their recipes and their philosophy about tea and their tea room.  Their style is whimsical and fun.  I DO HAPPEN TO LOVE VICTORIAN but hey- I like a blend too! 

Late note:  An email from Julie and Becky says:

I just bought this cookbook for my Kindle, and I noticed in the reviews sections that there are some mistakes in the Pumpkin Scone recipe and the Chicken Salad. Instead of 1/4 cup!!!! of the cinnamon and ginger, 1 teaspoon each of the cinnamon and the ginger. The curried chicken sandwiches should have chopped red apple in the recipe.

The three tearooms  aren't just about tea by the way - but a place where activities abound and a lovely luncheon with creative salads and sandwiches are served to those who aren't into Afternoon Tea.

As we near Christmas this week - my store is a little crazy - so I may not be posting every day!  Today I am linking to Sandi on Prince Edward Island at Rose Chintz Cottage & Inspirations for Tea Time Tuesday!

Oh, how I love your Alice things - I collect them too - though mine are all different from yours...

Hi Bernideen,
Love your Alice teapots! The teapot in your previous post is simply darling! This sounds like an interesting tea book. I've asked my hubby to get me a nice tea book I saw at Hallmark; keeping my fingers crossed! Hope you and your loved ones have a lovely and joyous holiday season!

CHRISTmas blessings,
Sandi
