CELTIC TEAS WITH FRIENDS, Teatime Traditions from Cornwall, Ireland, Scotland and Wales

Elizabeth Knight, author of Tea With Friends, has created another beautiful collection of themed teas. The focus this time is on celebrations drawn from Cornwall, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Beautifully-illustrated by Hugh Harrison and filled with recipes.

Dear Elizabeth,

On this snowy day in Chicago I am reflecting on what lovely memories you have passed on to me and a dozen ladies (and a half dozen husbands who dropped them off and lingered awhile) through your book "Celtic Teas With Friends." I came across it by chance at an Irish shop. It inspired me to throw a tea party for Nallaig na mBan. Mind you, I've never been to a tea party let alone hosted one. I truly had no idea what I was doing. Scary! You would have laughed at my reactions to the recipes as I was mixing them, thinking they'd never work for real food. : ) However, the party was a HUGE success with gasps and oh's and praises from every guest. One friend said she had never been to such a wonderful tea—so pretty and delicious. Your book MADE my Christmas!

— Thank you, Linda
