The recipes in this cookbook look deliciously tempting; however, after making the blueberries scones, I CANNOT recommend the book to anyone. I’m not certain if there is simply a typo in the book, but when I mixed up the scones, I had a soupy batter, rather than a dough. I dropped a few spoonfuls of batter onto a baking sheet & tried baking it. The result was a flattened “cookie” shape & the taste was okay. I added more flour to the remaining batter in an attempt to make it into the dough that it was supposed to be & after baking it, the result was a bland, tasteless lump with an unappetizing texture. The other scones recipes in the book appeared to have similar proportions of ingredients as the blueberry scones did, so I didn’t bother to even try another batch.

In 2001, Alice’s Tea Cup opened on Seventy-Third Street in New York, a magical hideaway where tea could be savored with a bit of whimsy and happiness. The success of the Fox sisters is now ours to enjoy in this delightful collection of recipes for scones, teas, cakes, soups and sandwiches from the restaurant menu. Alice’s Tea Cup is a veritable feast for the eyes and palette.

I especially enjoyed the recipes for Green Goddess Soup, White Rabbit Dark Chocolate Mousse, Blueberry Lemon Cake and Turkey Chili. A host of fabulous photographs illuminate each recipe, with easy to follow instructions and serving tips. Excellent gift idea for the cook searching for something a little different.

After watching 'Black Butler', both seasons, my 14 year old informed me we must have a tea party, complete with different teas, scones, cookies and assorted foodstuffs. The hunt was on for good tasting recipes that would suit American palate and still work with tea cakes and china cups/saucers.

I have found such delight in making these recipes (so far...haven't made it out of the scone section yet) and my coworkers are also delighted, as they are the recipients of the extras not consumed at home.

There are a few drawbacks so far. Mainly being, the recipes don't match the pictures. Even trying to match the ingredients as closely as possible, nope, not happening. With a bit of tweaking, they work well and are delicious.

I liked the book so much I purchased it (after checking it out from the library and realizing I just how good the recipes are)

and we are planning a Mad Hatter party, complete with requiring hats/head pieces and silly verbiage ;-)

The two wannabe-celebrity sisters who authored this book made the fateful decision to run their Manhattan establishment (after which the book is named) as a combination of tearoom cum global-fusion-style lunch counter cum children’s party emporium. The resulting recipes and food presentations seem garish to Anglo teatime purists like my friend Babs and me. We have never visited their restaurant (and probably won’t), but we also suspect the place would lack the tranquil atmosphere required for a traditional British afternoon tea.

"Don't get too worked up about the temperature of your water. A 20-degree difference is not going to ruin anything! If you don't own a thermometer, just bring your water to a boil (but don't overboil or you'll boil all the oxygen out of the water, which can make for bitter tea, believe it or not) and let it sit for 1 minute before adding it to the teapot or teacup."
