Bangor Mail - - The Food Focus -

EV­ERY­THING stops for tea ... and sand­wiches and cake. Antony Wild and Carol Pas­tor have joined forces to bring out The Per­fect Af­ter­noon Tea Recipe Book.

It in­cludes more than 200 clas­sic recipes in one de­li­cious vol­ume for the ul­ti­mate teatime ex­pe­ri­ence.

The book in­cludes an in­tro­duc­tory guide to tea tra­di­tions and eti­quette, spe­cial­ity teas and ideas for cakes, sand­wiches, breads, jams and bis­cuits.

Antony worked as buy­ing di­rec­tor for tea com­pany Tay­lors of Har­ro­gate, while Carol’s many books in­clude Cup­cakes.

They say: “Af­ter­noon tea is a so­cia­ble oc­ca­sion to be en­joyed with fam­ily and friends. So smile and make po­lite con­ver­sa­tion (be­tween mouth­fuls, of course) and savour this most quin­tes­sen­tial of English tra­di­tions.”
