Author Notes

Annabel and Emily Lui are two food-obsessed sisters, self-taught bakers and the owners of Cutter & Squidge. They spent their formative years hiding under the tables of their family's restaurant before taking up careers of their own. Annabel worked in Corporate Finance, while Emily is a qualified Lawyer. From trading at local markets they progressed to pop-ups in Harrods and Selfridges, and finally to opening their flagship store in London's Soho in 2015. This is their first book.

Publisher's Weekly Review

In this mouthwatering array of recipes, the Lui sisters highlight creations from their London bakery and tea house Cutter & Squidge. They offer more than 60 recipes utilizing only natural colors and flavorings with vegan and gluten-free options suitable for all skill levels, derived from both their Asian heritage and from British and French classics. Organizing their recipes by tea-themed parties, the sisters share recipes for basics including sponges, chocolate cake, buttercreams, custards, jams, as well as some savory dishes. Flavorsome cheese clouds, salted caramel brownies, and a luscious blueberry and lemon cheesecake dream cake are highlights from their Signature Afternoon Tea menu. Rose zucchini tartlets (Fantasy Afternoon Tea) and their raspberry ripple layer cake (Classic British Afternoon Tea) are exquisite. They also include recipes for raspberry ripple layer cake (Classic British), rose zucchini tartlets (Fantasy Afternoon), and vegan curry puffs and mini vegetable spring rolls (The Orient) along with suggested pairings for Mother's Day and kid favorites. For those who enjoy afternoon entertaining, this glorious collection will not disappoint. (Oct.)
