Dainty Dining



Yesterday I received Dainty Dining by Angela Webster McRae in the mail.
I was so excited to get my hands on it, as I had known it was in the works
for awhile.  Angela put together a lovely tribute to America's department store
tearooms of the past with lovely pictures and recipes too.
This does bring back fond memories of peaking in the doors of some of these
department store tearooms and wishing I could have tea there.
Now I can step inside and savor each moment through Angela's lovely book.

As a special celebration I have an extra book to give to one of my readers.
Please leave a comment here and I will announce the winner on Monday morning.
If you are interested in purchasing a book visit Angela at Tea with Friends blog for more information.

You can also follow Angela's blog Tea with Friends for new adventures in tea.

I have wonderful memories of going to Meier & Frank's tearoom with my grandmother and great-grandmother. I probably was no older than 5 or 6 years. This sounds like a very interesting book.

Oh, wow... what a wonderful and very pretty book! I will have to share about this with my Mom. I've always loved hearing her stories about lunch out with her sisters at the big, old department stores. It all sounded so elegant and lovely. I feel like I missed out on something... LOL... You are sweet to share a book with us, Marilyn. Thank you! :o) Happy Week ((HUGS))
