I have been eagerly awaiting the release of the latest book from the editors of TeaTime magazine. TeaTime is a sister publication to Victoria, and one of my favorite Hoffman Media titles. Afternoon Tea is a visual feast! Tantalizing recipes, exquisite photography and lovely design make this a book you will want to linger over for hours -- preferably with a cup of tea in hand and a tiered server laden with treats nearby.
There's no better companion to an afternoon pot of tea than a three-tiered serving tray laden with light and fluffy scones, delicious savories, and delectable sweets. In Afternoon Tea, the editors of TeaTime magazine explain how to find the perfect balance of these essential components of the traditional tea menu. With more than ninety recipes, five menus for special occasions with expert tea pairings, tips for composing a teatime menu, and an informative chapter in which Jane Pettigrew traces the history of the iconic tiered stand, this book is sure to please tea lovers everywhere.
In my new position with Victoria, my desk is steps away from the office of TeaTime Editor Lorna Reeves. She has graciously offered a signed copy of Afternoon Tea to a reader of A Little Loveliness. To enter this giveaway, please leave a separate comment for each entry you choose.
