Lovely elegant recipes with intelligent background from historian Lucy Worsley. The photos are mouth-watering and far less high-calorie than actually making any of the dishes. The only caveat I have is that the recipes are designed for an English audience, so they'll require a fair amount of translation for American cooks -- ingredients are given in grams rather than cups or teaspoons, oven settings are in centigrade, and some of the ingredients are not really obtainable in the U.S. (Is golden caster sugar the same as brown sugar? Not sure.)

Interesting "tea" history along with excellent recipes.

Wonderful little book to create the perfect Royal Tea Party!
