Updated Tea Book

Yesterday I posted about my newly purchased book, "The Perfect Afternoon Tea Book."

Thank you to Angela at Tea With Friends for the comment pointing out she has the older version of this book.  I thought the title sounded familiar.  I have the older version, too.  It is the one on the right in the photo above.  It was published in 1997.  The 2009 book on the left has twice the number of recipes as the original book, and only a very few are repeated in the newer book.  The 2009 book also has many more photos with better step-by-step instructions. 

Note to Angela:  Thanks for pointing out the Madeleine recipe in the older book.  It is not in the newer version of the book. I have hesitated to try out my Madeleine pans, but will do so with your recommendation of this recipe.

I have so many cute tea and home decor books from the 1990's. It seemed to be the decade for lovely picture books like the Afternoon Tea book in your post.

It's funny how when a cookbook is updated they put in new recipes and leave out others. I have a cookbook (the red and white checked one) that I received when I got married. It was falling apart; so my husband bought me a new one. I still use the original, as those are the recipes I learned to love when I started cooking.

Thanks for the review, Linda! I had no idea the new book had so many more recipes, so of course it will be going on my (never-ending) wish list!

Thanks for pointing this out. I checked my library and sure enough, I have the older version too.

Don't be afraid of Madelaines. They really are easy and so worth it! Besides, then you can be very "literary" And I love your Shelley teacup!
