Book Description

Product Description


Jean Cazals' book achieves that rare thing of showing the familiar in a new light. Cool, sophisticated and fun, with mouth-watering photography in every way this book is a book for photography lovers, visitors to our great city and Londoners alike. It will tempt and allure in equal measure. --

--Condé Nast Traveller

Jean Cazals' photography has graced the pages of umpteen national newspapers, lifestyle and travel magazines and cookery books, and he has won many awards for his work, yet this is his first book in his own name. He shoots with a Panasonic Lumix G3 camera, mainly in natural daylight, but there is a moody penumbra, a juxtaposition of chiaroscuro and light that underpins his technique. The photographs will have you immersed for hours: this is an accomplished book that merits a central place on the drawing room table, guest room tallboy or front of bookcase. Heavy, glossy, stylised, graphic and sensual, it packs a punch as both a travel micro-memoir and a gastronomic reference touchstone. If you know someone who is a lover of tea, patisserie and fine hotels and restaurants, this is the ultimate gift. Much shines through in this book: the talent of all the chefs, designers, stylists, architects and management behind these wonderful 50 places and the skill and craftsmanship of Jean Cazals and the Papadakis team in creating this work. It is exciting, engaging, communal and colourful. Much like a well prepared tea. --Silvana de Soissons, The Foodie Bugle

TeaTime is a tribute to the hedonism, richness and indulgence of the British high-tea ritual, filled with a collection of Cazal s finest and perhaps most playful work --FOUR The Worlds Best Food Magazine

3.0 out of 5 stars For the coffee table not the tea table? 9 Oct 2012
By Peasant TOP 500 REVIEWER
A walloping great lump of a book, packed with lush photographs. It is a gathering of places in London to indulge yourself in a proper afternoon tea, from the Daylesford organic cafe to the Savoy. But what is it for? There are atmospheric shots of the insides of a large number of luxurious tea rooms, and a bit of text describing them. Then for each venue there is a recipe. However, the recipes are given in a very brief - nay, sketchy - form. On the page facing the recipe, where you'd expect to find a photo of said teatime delicacy (posed, of course, in its natural habitat of the aforementioned tea-supping venue) there is another, but unrelated atmospheric shot in which, though I looked and looked, the subject of the recipe just did not feature.

I do not think the author can have seriously expected any reader to follow these recipes. They are there to whet the palette for a trip to their home cafe. So this book is, basically, a glorified directory of London cafes. As such its usefulness is strictly limited to those who have time and money on their hands. For the rest of us, it's a case of "dream on, mate". Save your money and spend it on French macaroons and Lapsang Souchong in Waitrose? If it's recipes and inspiration you want, go for Tea at Fortnum & Mason

3.0 out of 5 stars A little dissapointed 10 Sep 2012
By Kelvin
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I thought this book would be much better. I work in one of the hotels featured in the book and was hoping to use it for inspiration and espionage on competitors. Perfect for home use and those madly in love with Afternoon tea. It just wasn't for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tea Bible! 2 Sep 2012
The 'must' coffee table book/guide to have for all tea and cake lovers living or coming to London. Went to few of the places mention and loved them all. Pictures are great and show in a stylistic approach what other book shows you in snap shots! Well worth it. Love the recipes too, only did the wonderful Madeleine from 'Sketch'.

I love the book Tea Time! I'm from the USA and have never been to London. Because of the book I've put traveling to London on the top of my list of places I want to travel to in the future.
