Deliciously indulgent recipes for sandwiches, savouries, scones, cakes and other fancies
Recipes and inspiration for how to host the ultimate tea party with instruction from master pâtissier Will Torrent.
Will Torrent showcases his no-nonsense approach to the key techniques involved in patisserie, baking, chocolate work and serving savoury dishes in 80 beautifully illustrated recipes. An invaluable source of inspiration, there are also six guest recipes from top restaurants and hotels, including The Ritz, The Dorchester, The Gramercy Tavern, The Berkeley, Les Manoir aux Quat'Saisons and Harrods.
Starting with a brief history of afternoon tea, Will then offers up store cupboard recipes for basic jams, spreads, butters and curds – everything you might need to serve alongside a carefully planned afternoon tea. Recipes include classics such as smoked salmon and whipped cream cheese sandwiches, cherry and almond Bakewell tarts, vanilla shortbread and fruited scones; as well as some some more adventurous and creative recipes too.
A real feast for the senses, this book will make you want to pull out all the stops and create your own gorgeous themed tea parties at home.
