A Literary Tea Party: Blends and Treats for Alice, Bilbo, Dorothy, Jo, and Book Lovers Everywhere Reviews
Have you ever yearned to eat what the characters in your current book are eating? Or gotten hungry from the descriptions of food in books? I always wanted to try Maple Syrup snow candy like Laura Ingalls made in Little House in the Big Woods. Or have Raspberry Cordial with Anne Shirley. Or something simple like Bread and Jam with Frances the badger. A Literary Tea Party by Alison Walsh includes recipes for sweet and savory teatime treats and the tea blends to accompany them.

I love that you can go through the book by category (Savories, Bread & Muffings, Sweets, Tea Blends, and Tea Alternatives) as well as suggestions for themed tea party groupings (Alice's Mad Tea Party, Aslan's Feast, An Autumnal Tea Party...)
I do wish there had been a few more recipes for each literary source so you could have (for example) a Winnie the Pooh themed party., As it stands, the only books that have themed parties in the themed party idea section are Alice in Wonderland and The Ch ...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
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.

The premise and style of this book is incredibly charming. The idea of making food and tea recipes based off of various well-known books is one that's really appealing to me as a bookworm, and the aesthetic design of this book (the pictures especially) is quite whimsical and cute.
The things I liked:
As I said, the style and concept were very well conceptualized and executed, and the pictures look scrumptious. I thought that perhaps more recipes would be direct recreations of dishes mentioned in b ...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
This lovely collection of literary-inspired recipes for savories, breads, and desserts is inspired by familiar children’s and high school classics. Enjoy a hearty Deeper’n Ever Turnip’n Tater’n Beetroot Pie (served to the moles in Redwall), Savory Apple Rose Tartlets (a rose was The Phantom of the Opera's calling card), or Miss Marple’s “Pocket Full of Rye” Tea Sandwiches. Feast on Blood Orange Scones (for “The Five Orange Pips” in Sherlock Holmes’s fifth case) or Beorn’s Honey Nut Banana Bread ...more
Fun recipes inspired by literature, like Alice in Wonderland and Little Women. There are recipes for everything from sandwiches to tarts. There are even tea blends to make. This would be a good book of tea time recipes inspired by a book lover.
