Product Description

For almost ten years, Alice's Tea Cup has been a destination in New York City for locals and tourists alike who crave a scrumptious afternoon tea without airs or pretension. Haley and Lauren Fox learned at an early age that tea was more than just a beverage - it was an event to be shared and protected - and they divulge their tea-making philosophy and dozens of delectable recipes in this beautiful cookbook: savories, baked goods, sweet treats, tea selections, specialty drinks, and of course, Alice's world-famous tender, moist scones, including nineteen versions, from pumpkin to peanut butter and jelly to ham and cheese. Index. Illus., color photos. 230p.

Editorial Reviews

While Alice may be fictional, Alice's Tea Cup is a real place. Opened in 2001 by the Fox sisters, it serves Victorian tea fare with a twist. Delectable scones include Black Forest Ham and Cheese Scones and Lavender Earl Grey Scones. Steak lovers will devour Alice's Steak Salad—which calls for steak, mixed greens, a Maté Carnival tea-soaked egg, and Granny Smith apple. The Foxes also discuss tea-brewing basics and the art of the tea party and share resources for locating teas. A treat for party planners and tea drinkers.
