This weekends cookbook review is The Vintage Tea Party Book by Angel Adoree.
I first saw this book in our kitchen at work and loved it immediately, so bought it for myself as a birthday treat last year.
One of the reasons I love it so much is because it is so much more than just a cookbook, its a guide to hosting your perfect tea party in a 1940s way and includes so much more than just recipes. Inside you find pages on invitation designs, a guide to sourcing props, decorating your china, making aprons and bunting, parlour games, picking the perfect vintage dress, hair and make up including a step by step guide to Victory Rolls… it’s amazing!
The recipes are very retro as is the styling (in a good way), which is done by Angel and photography by Yuki Sugiura. It’s a wonderful book as it’s just so very different to any other cookbook I own.
