This brilliant collection of sweet confections and savoury nibbles will inspire and entice bakers and lovers of afternoon tea, of all ages. Set against a backdrop of twelve of Britain's most stunning palaces and residences, the recipes are a mix of traditional, contemporary and whimsical; each one with its own unique twist. Every chapter tells a tale, with inspiration drawn from sources as diverse as a 200-year-old royal banquet menu, an intriguing 17th-century chocolate kitchen commissioned by William III and Queen Victoria's highland retreat. Gingerbread soldiers in sentry boxes, striking raspberry swirl meringues, miniaturised cream scones, cacao nib nuggets and warm salmon tartlets are just a few of the teatime temptations.
