Teatime Giveaway #31 - "National Trust Book of Tea-Time Recipes"

The winner of the Olympic tea set pin is Karen of Somerville, N.J., so congrats! If you'll send me your snail mail address via the e-mail button at right, I'll get this headed your way! And for this week's giveaway, I must confess I accidentally purchased a duplicate of a book I already own, "The National Trust Book of Tea-time Recipes" by Jane Pettigrew (1995). In my defense, this version of the (excellent!) book has a different cover, so that's why I thought it was a different book, but I checked and all the recipes are the same. So, rather than keep it, I decided I'd share this book with a reader who is interested in, say, Hot Cross Buns, Irish Plum Cake and Cornish Splits. Is that you? If so, just leave a comment to this post between now and noon EST on Friday, Aug. 10. Good luck!

  6. Cornish splits are new to me but things often have a different name than what one is used to.
    Sounds like a good book to add to my collection.
