The book then turns to 70 recipes for delicious bakes, bites and assorted sweet and savoury delights to accompany a delightful afternoon tea, with sections on: Pastries, buns and biscuits - Whip up classics like the cream scone or chelsea buns, as well as enticing delicacies such as raspberry eclairs and chocolate florentines. Cakes, tarts and puddings - From colourful Battenburg cakes and lemon tarts to warming spicy dark gingerbread or steamed toffee pudding, these irresistable bakes will have something to suit every taste. Tea sandwiches and savoury bites - Enjoy mini pork pies and cornish pasties, or make carefully trimmed tea sandwiches to complete any spread. Preserves and spreads - Make aromatic strawberry-rhubarb jam, currant jelly or lemon curd from scratch to accompany your bakes. This carefully curated selection of recipes spans the world of Downton, from intimate afternoon tea taken in the drawing-room to glamorous tea parties in the garden.
