Spring/Summer gardening is about to begin. We have been harvesting wonderful greens, herbs and spices all winter long. The Winter was mild and the kale and collards did wonderfully and are still are producing. We will be replanting for Spring/Summer in early March and hope for another successful planting season. It is great to live in Florida!

Tea rooms are hidden gems located in old Victorian homes or perhaps a Bed and Breakfast or Premier Hotel. Tea rooms offer an escape from the busy world around us, a day of tranquility and opportunity to spend a peaceful afternoon with family and friends. In my book you will find our tea journey begins with the “Traditional English Afternoon Tea” originated by Anna, 7th Duchess of Bedford, where afternoon tea consisted of a savory dish, baked entrées, such as scones served with clotted cream, lemon curd and fruit preserves. It is a British culinary tradition of socialites sitting down for a mid-day meal of tea and treats and also involved things like manners, lace, fancy attire and dainty foods. Tea favorites were black teas like Earl Gray, and Assam, as well as herbal teas like Chamomile and Mint.
Very few entrées if any are completely plant-based without the addition of these ingredients. Perhaps in time menus will offer more options, but until that time I want to share my plant-based recipes for those who would like to enjoy their own afternoon tea at home. I hope you relish all the delectable recipes in this book not just for afternoon tea, but for any special occasion you may be entertaining.
