Great Tea Rooms Of Am. .I bought this book while on a tea outing with my grandmother and cousins at "Tea Upon Chatsworth" in San Diego.Following the success of his colorful The Great Tea Rooms of Britain, Bruce Richardson has crafted a stunning collection of color photographs and recipes from 22 outstanding tea venues across the United States and Canada. It was delightful to read the history about different tearooms throughout America.
Assisted by the British Tea Council (!), Richardson visited 22 of the best tea rooms in Britain, from London to North Wales to Scotland. The writing is gushing but doesn't really excite one's tastebuds.
There are no books of this type, even in England. Assisted by the British Tea Council (!), Richardson visited 22 of the best tea rooms in Britain, from London to North Wales to Scotland. The photographs are odd: clearly staged, but nevertheless a bit awkward and clumsy looking. Trays of pastries are badly lit, or are set so far back in the photograph that all details are lost.
Also included is a listing of America's Great Tea Shops and 25 pages of recipes. Includes such tearooms as: Alice's Tea Cup New York, New York. Butchart Gardens Victoria, British Columbia. Cliffside Inn Newport, Rhode Island.
With the assistance of The British Tea Council and its outstanding Guild of Tea Shops, he has put together another delicious collection of color photographs, narrative, touring tips, and recipes from 22 memorable tea rooms in England, Scotland and Wales. You can almost smell the tea brewing and the scones baking! By Thriftbooks. com User, August 18, 2008.
