Tea & Crumpets

There’s only one time of the year when we’d dare suggest decadent sweets to a doctor, and this is it. This is also the time of year when a doctor’s home will be host to family and friends, and when guests will

linger a little longer than usual — whether you want them to or not.

The one blessing at those lunches that stretch until supper and those suppers that leave you weighted with wine is that there’s almost always tea. There’s no better companion to conversation.

Whether it’s Earl Grey or oolong you’re pouring this season, Tea & Crumpets: Recipes & Rituals from European Tearooms & Cafes (Chronicle Books) should be your guide. It’s full of cakes, pastries and sandwiches that are certain to make the holidays all the more special.
