WITH A DASH OF MILK, PLEASE

On the other side of the Channel, the time stops at 5 PM for tea.

Not only a cup of Earl Grey and a dash of milk: cakes and biscuits, sandwiches and savouries, snacks, puddings and other desserts, strong drinks.

John Bentham gives us 50 typically-British salty and sweet recipes and initiates us to the great art of snacking.

Take out your flowery china set and invite a lot of people to spend an excellent gourmet afternoon at your place.
