A Literary Tea Party: Blends and Treats for Alice, Bilbo, Dorothy, Jo, and Book Lovers Everywhere Reviews
A lot of simple recipes that can be the part of a real literary tea party, I like the theme of the book and the thought put behind it. It would be nice to have some ideas on how to decorate for the tea party, but I guess this is a food book not a party book.
The sandwiches look lovely, while the tea sounds divine, now I need to find time to make it, and friends to eat it with .
This is a must-have cookbook for all readers! The recipes are inspired of Alice in Wonderland, Narnia, Shakespeare and more! It even comes with tea pairings and homemade tea blends, how cool is that? I definitely look forward for the finished copy.

I absolutely adore this cookbook! Every single recipe made me smile. Either because I have read the book & was transported back to those scenes or because the scene described made me want to read the book which inspired the recipe.
The recipes aren't too difficult & I love that there are savory and sweet recipes.
I definitely recommend this to all the bookworms out there.
For literary lovers, fun foodies and creative party planners, this book is a cool must-have. The recipes are all for tea-time-appropriate snacks (savory and sweet), custom tea blends, and fun non-alcoholic drinks based on beloved books. Be Alice, having "bread and butterflies" and drinking tea with the Mad Hatter; step through the wardrobe and have a bite of Turkish Delight; or cook up a hearty afternoon snack fit for Hobbits and Dwarves alike.

I love the concept of this cookbook. It would be perfect for an afternoon book club meeting. My favourite part was the addition of quotes from the book as too often literary recipes have little to do with the actual novel except for a clever recipe title. I also enjoyed the mix of techniques throughout the book with some recipes for beginners with pre bought doughs, while others make dough or candy from scratch being more advanced, The unique tea mixes and pairings with the recipes is a very hel ...more
This is a cute book, the type of thing that would make a nice gift book for a reader. Maybe give the book with a copy of one of the classic books mentioned and the ingredients to make one of the associated recipes!
I made the London Fog Latte inspired by Sherlock Holmes and really enjoyed it, so I've made it several times since, adjusting things a bit to my own taste. (I brew the tea a bit longer and add a bit less honey. Also a safety note: the hot liquid in the bender is gives off quite a bit o ...more
Cometh the hour, cometh the cookbook. I was delighted to open this book and almost immediately find a new idea for my Easter party next week. (Cracked China Devilled Eggs – so colourful and pretty.)
This is a book of literary-inspired tea-time recipes. Some recipes are directly related to foods eaten in the stories; others are just inspired by them ( eg Star Crossed Focaccia for Romeo and Juliet ).
I recently read a cookbook with a similar premise to this: The Little Library Cookbook by Kate You ...more

A few months ago, my mom and I went to a traditional English Tea at a local Bed and Breakfast. Neither of us had attended a tea before, but we decided it would be a great way to kick off the holiday season and do something different. Sometimes life demands a distraction from the mundane every day routine. What better way to slow down and refresh yourself than with delicious food and flavorful teas?
The experience was very pleasant. In fact, we enjoyed it so ...more
