More about the Frances Lincoln book:
Everyone loves a tea party. Mix-and-match crockery, bone-handled knives, lace and linen, sweet peas and roses, home baking and a slug of gin in the tea cup - they're all back in vogue. Indoors by the fire in winter or outside in sumemr sunshine, hosts and guests can relax together with none of the formality of a dinner party.
Carolyn Caldicott and her husband Chris own the World Food Café
in London's Covent Garden, where they for twenty years they have been
cooking and serving delicious vegetarian food from recipes collected on
their travels. They are the authors of three vegetarian cookery books
published by Frances Lincoln.
In VIntage Tea Party, Carolyn Caldicott shows readers how to recreate a world of nostalgic comfort, old-fashioned elegance and delicious treats. Try her recipes for cucumber sandwiches, Victoria sponge, rose petal jelly, strawberry and champagne jam, Earl Grey tea with gin and lemon, and much, much more.
