Love tea?

GORGEOUS work by Twigg Studios.  New to me food & craft blog by Aimee Twigger out of the UK.:

Thanks for all the sweet feedback about my
Swedish Pancake win, and in the spirit of
all things beautiful beyond brunch, today
I offer inspiration for afternoon tea.

I have never hosted one, and truth be told
my favorite tea remains plain ol' organic green,
yet I look forward to learning how those
in the know serve it with style.

This new book from Will Torrent
(available March 10th - Ryland Peters & Small)
is just the ticket to deliver the confidence
and recipes for hosting a proper civilized afternoon tea.

In addition to a history of this British institution,
the book has recipes from top restaurants
and hotels, including:
The Ritz
The Dorchester
Brown's Hotel
The Berkeley
Les Manoir aux Quat'Saisons
and Harrods.
Will Torrent
Torrent offers recipes for basic jams, spreads, butters and curds -
everything for a carefully planned afternoon tea.
