Review

This cookbook has a collection of English teatime favorites. My all-time favorite is the cucumber sandwich, and my favorite dessert is Victoria sponge cake. I decided to try out the recipe for cucumber sandwiches. The recipe was easy to follow and the visuals helped give an idea of what to model the display after. I have made these sandwiches plenty of times before, but this recipe was a bit different (it worked just fine!).

I found that most of the recipes are clear, straightforward and appropriate for all ranges of skill levels in the kitchen. Some require basic ingredients, while others are a bit more specialized. The types of foods include: scones and pastries, jams/spreads, cakes and pies, cookies, ice creams/pudding type desserts, soups, meat based dishes, and cocktails. There are 75 recipes jammed into this cookbook!

The pictures are so beautiful. They make me wish I could set up some nice spreads! Therefore, they have some great presentation ideas. Almost every recipe gets a corresponding photo so you can see what it would look like.

As for the Bridgerton tie in, it is mostly due to 1) the “English tea time” theme and 2) names or little blurbs added to the dishes. Of course, these are inspired by the time period and the cultural themes. So that’s really where it ties in the most.

As a result, you don’t need to be a Bridgerton fan to get any value out of this cookbook. It can be a standalone, as long as you want to make the typical “tea time” foods.

Good for a fan of the show or not! If you want to put on a tea party or quaint dinner, or even just an assortment of nice looking treats for a gathering, this is a good choice.
