COOKING AND BAKING JANE AUSTEN STYLE



Back in 2004, Kim Wilson came out with this wonderful "Tea With Jane Austen" which really gave us an education into planning a special tea event with a Jane Austen theme and great recipes representing the Regency Period.  Now we have another wonderful guidebook to turn to for ideas for our next Jane Austen Event!
The Jane Austen Cookbook is by Maggie Black and Deirdre Le Faye:





What a better time of year than fall to host your own Jane Austen dinner at home or even as a fundraiser for your favorite charity!  This new book is a gem for ideas, recipes that a converted for your modern kitchen and lots of great information and insight! (It is available at my store)  Get ready for some fun!

Yes, Bernideen! I love "Tea with Jane Austen" - I use that as the foundation book for the speakingprogram I do on Jane for Ladies' teas - most recently this past November - just a month and a half before our precious local tea room was demolished when the 19th century theatre it shared a wall with collasped during renovations! So sad! It was one of the lovelier Jane teas as it was rather exclusive and everyone came dressed in Regency attire! Our tea mistress is opening a new shop soon and I hope to repeat the performance.
Also - in addition - there is a sequel to the tea book - you'll love this: In the Garden with Jane Austen!!! Check it out at Barnes & Noble or Amazon!
Joy!
Miss Kathy

It sounds so interesting I would love to look inside and see the recipes..My one and only Tea Party was last year and it was a Fall Party in late October... It was wonderful I spent months getting ready planning and finding all the dishes etc. It was only 15 guess but that for my Apt. was quite enough. I would have love to have had this book...thank you for sharing.

Hi Bernideen
These look like a couple of good books, I'll have to see if they are available in Canada.

Oh Bernideen...your books are fantastic. How fun. My friend in MA made me a doll that's dressed in a lovely Jane Austen dress which I really love.
You must enjoy these books very much. Happy Fall.

Hi Bernideen,

I do own "Tea with Jane Austen", but never knew there was a JA cook book. I will check it out.

No Jane Austen party would be complete without tea. My dear friend Julia Matson, the owner of "Bingley's Teas Limited" has designed a whole line of JA character teas. You can check out my reviews at:
http://www.theteaenthusiastsscrapbook.com/the-tea-enthusiasts-scra/2011/05/bingleys-teatime-with-jane-austen.html

She will be selling her teas at 2 upcoming JA events in October.

Thanks for sharing! Thank you for adding the URL comment option!:)

Blessings, Darlene
