Format: Hardcover
A rather thin and small book with 50% of the pages taken up with glossy full page pictures. The recipes are, in the main, for sweet dainty nibbles. They range from the boring ( scones) to the weird ( blinis with wasabi or baby rarebits with beetroot and orange) to the plain silly ( finger sandwiches - sandwiches cut into fingers!). In my opinion, a book for those who like to look at pretty recipe books with arty photos rather than actually cook or bake anything. There are one or two interesting ideas but in my opinion one to borrow from the library rather than buy.

These are straightforward recipes, not too complicated and with much wow factor. Although I did read the Chelsea Bun recipe too quickly and forgot to let it raise a second time... My husband still ate them and thought they were delicious...

My mother bought me this book a while ago. Whenever I need to make a cake for school or having friends over I always reach for this little book.
It is well written and photographed and every reciepe looks tempting.I have tried many of them but the Lemon Drizzle Cake is by far and away my favourite. It is quick and simple to prepare and everybody asks for the reciepe.
I would agree with the other review that a few more savoury ideas would be nice, but this book appeals to my sweet tooth!
It is on my christmas gift list to give to friends this year.

I bought this book as I am planning an Afternoon Tea for my Wedding in July this year. It has some great ideas and (mainly) easy recipes. I might like to see a few more savoury options but otherwise highly recommended.

One reviewer has referred to this book as being "thin", but what it might lack in length it more than makes up for in quality both of recipes and photography. This is the first book I refer to for afternoon tea recipe inspiration ... the lemon drizzle cake is wonderful, as are the baby cheese scones, which are smaller than the photo would indicate, and are a delicious alternative to sweet scones (well, you could serve both of course!) I also have Susannah Blake's Afternoon Tea Parties (wonderful photography again by martin Brigdale.) Both are truly inspirational.
