Master Tea Room Recipes: Large recipes perfect for Tearooms, Caterers and Social Groups
by Amy Lawrence
“My advice to you is to be creative when you’re planning your menu. You never know what new sandwich or dessert you will invent. Experiment until you find what works for you.”
Based on her six years of experience owning a Btitish-style tearoom in Northern California, Amy Lawrence created the book she needed as a resource for other tea room owners and anyone preparing large quantities of the traditional teatime fare. Want to know the fastest way to caramelize ten pounds of onions for quiche? How to make a no-fail, microwave version of Lemon Curd? Or how to keep hundreds of sandwiches moist without becoming soggy overnight?
Master Tea Room Recipes also reveals some proven tips on organizing, prep and storage. It’s not just the advice, thirty-seven tea sandwich recipes and sixteen scone recipes that make this a useful tool. It’s the presentation.
“My cooks needed the doubled and tripled recipes printed with oversize type fonts and copied on single sheets so that they could post the recipes at eye-level while they worked.”
Solving that problem, the pages from Master Tea Room Recipes can be copied directly from the book or printed from the companion CD.
Amy Lawrence began researching and training with industry professionals in 2002 and opened her tea room, Afternoon To Remember, in Newcastle, CA in 2003. After moving with her family to Seattle, WA in 2010 she has expanded to include her own line of products and services available both
retail and wholesale.
