Watch this clip as the Dowager Countess demonstrates how one makes a proper cup of tea while still catching up on current events (video ITV). Even for those who are not fans of Downton Abbey, this book will be a great one to have as a collection of quite a number of great cakes to make to enjoy with a nice cup of tea. Their systems only allow access to our most senior staff and only in extenuating circumstances (such as investigations of Card Fraud by the Police).

Yes, it is evident that this middle class lawyer is a diamond in the rough, and has a long way to go before he will become a true gentleman, but we gradually see him growing into the role of heir apparent. If Afternoon Tea is fully booked, are there other areas for me to enjoy refreshments during my visit? I would watch Corrie Street and wondered about the big fuss about ”tea” at the end of the day and I never saw a single scone! The book is beautiful with pictures from the show and many of the dishes that it includes recipes for. Some recipes were a little more involved but if they could handle them for their early 20th century kitchens hopefully ours can handle them.

Yes, we have Tea Rooms on site that will be serving refreshments throughout the day to include cream teas, light lunches and hot food (served between 12noon-2pm).

Instead, I found our seats to be extremely public, for people to be overlooking us as we ate and for our service to be good but perfunctory. This carefully curated selection of 70 recipes guides you through the world of Downton, from afternoon tea in the drawing-room to glamorous garden parties.It’s well put together but I don’t want to rate it since I’ve not yet tried to make any recipes, just read through the text. My best friend Sarah and I decided that only our poshest togs would do and we went just a little over the top with the dressing up – I wore a full length green satin evening gown with long black gloves, hair up and lots of diamante jewellery. If you are planning a visit to the UK, watch Downton Abbey, Coronation Street, or other British type serials, it might be helpful to get proper knowledge of the terms used. From colourful Battenburg cakes and lemon tarts to warming spicy dark gingerbread or steamed toffee pudding, these irresistable bakes will have something to suit every taste.

With a brief history of tea at Downton Abbey and guide to the etiquette and decorum for afternoon tea, the book is and full of photographs and quotes from Downton characters, so you can recreate the rich traditions and flavours of Downton Abbey Afternoon Tea time and time again. From the inspiring evening wear and dinner party tables, through to the etiquette and service from the family, staff and their visitors and even the one liners and quips from the Dowager Countess of Grantham (Dame Maggie Smith) that would have anybody chuckling who cared to give it a go. As with everything, we were very early, so we decided to have a quick drink at the (aptly named) Rivoli Bar before meeting my aunt and uncle for ‘afternoon tea’.Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas mark 4 and grease and base-line 2 x 20cm (8in) sandwich tins with baking parchment. Pero debo decir que entre las pocas páginas explicando un poco el origen del té en Inglaterra, la etiqueta apropiada para servir el té, y la introducción de cada receta explicando el origen de las pastas, me ha gustado mucho.

The data they hold is extremely secure and they are regularly audited by the banks and banking authorities to ensure it remains so. An amusing point was when a fellow diner found a piece of plastic in his dessert…the waiters were extremely apologetic and rushed it back to the kitchen. So, why not dust off your posh crockery, get your pinny on and bake (and make) these recipes for Friday night, whilst watching Viking TV with Lady Carnarvon serving Afternoon Tea at Highclere Castle. The surroundings were plush, the table setting perfectly appointed, the waiting staff polite and attentive, and the live pianist a lovely touch – he even took requests and played our wedding song (L-O-V-E by Nat King Cole) during the course of the tea; I have to say the setting was lovely. Hello, in the Dowager Countess clip showing how to serve tea, she uses a hot water type urn to pour the water into the tea pot.

Apparently, as a child, Queen Victoria wasn’t allowed sweet things very often, but during her reign a taste for teatime developed and a little sweet something to sustain the Queen and her guests in the late afternoon became “de rigeur”. These are set menus, and cannot be altered to cater for additional dietary requirements or preferences. Now you can see how it’s done with the Countess of Carnarvon and an online Afternoon Tea Party at the REAL Downton Abbey, Highclere Castle and Viking TV.
