by Haley Fox and Lauren Fox
Release date: October 26, 2010
Description from NetGalley:
Since its flagship location opened in December 2001, Alice’s Tea Cup has become a destination in New York City for locals and tourists who crave a classic afternoon tea without airs or pretension. Sisters and owners 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 delectable recipes in this beautiful cookbook.
Embodying the mantra “tea turned on its ear,” Alice’s Tea Cup serves up unique twists to traditional Victorian tea fare including:
savories—Lapsang Souchong Smoked Chicken and Lemon Chive Butter and Cucumber sandwiches
baked goods—Banana Nutella Cake and Mint Black Bottom Cupcakes
sweet treats—Alice’S’mores and the Queen of Tarts, lemon custard tart infused with Verveine
tea selections—African Dew to Silver Needle Jasmine
specialty drinks—Alice’s Tea-jito to the Ginger Mar-tea-ni
and of course Alice’s world-famous scones—from pumpkin to ham and cheese to peanut butter and jelly
Haley and Lauren also provide tips on putting leftover ingredients to delicious use and offer suggestions on throwing a personalized “Curiouser and Curiouser” tea party with household props and menus.
From salads to scones, pancakes to cupcakes, afternoon tea to evening mar-tea-nis, this fabulous cookbook lets cooks enjoy Alice’s mouthwatering recipes without leaving home.
