Tea Book of the Week: "SpecialTeas"

(Available for purchase here)

SpecialTeas by M. Dalton King may be over fifteen years old, but it is a classic. Containing over a dozen themed tea party suggestions, this book emphasizes the food, and recipes are included.

The Thanksgiving Tea contains recipes with ingredients from the main holiday meal. What better way to use leftovers than for a tea party?

Here's one of the recipes. (Are you adventurous enough to serve Turkey and Stuffing Sandwiches at tea?) I think it sounds

Makes 24 pieces

12 thin slices wheat bread
Unsalted butter
6 thin slices turkey breast
6 tablespoons stuffing
6 teaspoons cranberry sauce

Spread each slice of bread with a thin coating of butter.

Lay a slice of turkey on 6 slices of bread. Spread a tablespoon of stuffing on each slice of turkey, then spoon a teaspoon of cranberry sauce over the stuffing. Top the sandwiches with the remaining bread.

Trim the crusts. Cut each sandwich into 4 pieces.

Turkey and stuffing sandwiches are fantastic. I often have these, especially at christmas, but they're very common over the pond here and they are one of the staples in the sandwich shops!

I love this book - I've enjoyed many of the recipes... and the photography is just beautiful.

The book is new to me, but not the sandwich. We love taking the leftover turkey and dressing with cranberry sauce. It taste better then next day, too.

I first got a turkey/dressing/cranberry sauce sandwich at a Boots drugstore near the hotel where I stayed in London! Had just arrived in from a long day trip to Stonehenge and Bath (where I'd eaten at Sally Lunn's tearoom), and I was hungry but just wanted something snacky to take back to my room and found that sandwich. It's a very happy (and tasty!) memory to me!
