I am always excited when a new cookbook comes out. I love to wander the aisles at the book store thumbing through each cookbook to read the recipes and ogle the beautiful pictures. As you may know, I have a habit of collecting cookbooks and then I disappear to read them like novels before they rest on my shelves. What I especially love is when a cookbook comes from a place I enjoy dining at. It brings back the memories of my experiences there and rekindles my desire for their scrumptious fare.
I also love tea time. High tea with it’s tiny tea sandwiches or tea with scones, and biscuits is really something to be experienced. There are some amazing official teas here in NYC, some very proper, and some very casual in wonderful little tea spots, like my favorite, Tea & Sympathy.
But none of them are quite like the whimsical experience at Alice’s Tea Cup with it’s child friendly atmosphere that transports you a more magical place.
Now, they are sharing some of their recipes with the release of their own cookbook-
At just $24, it’s available for purchase on their Website http://alicesteacup.com and most major bookstores.
I was given these two recipes to share with you. I apologize for the quality of the pictures. I assume they were just photocopied and emailed. This in no way affects their taste! I love Pumpkin, especially in the fall. And, well, Earl Grey is my tea. Try these recipes out and let me know what you think!
P.S. The pages say to see the Resources for information for the tea leaves. You can purchase tea leaves at gourmet tea shops or online.
