Tea Shoot

For the last six months or so, I’ve been working on a cookbook with Jonathan, Sachiko, Narumi and Jeremy–a Japanese cookbook on how to throw Western-style parties at home.
Today we’re working on our British Tea chapter. I’ve unearthed and ironed all my spring-colored linens found some pale pink tulips to decorate the table. Jonathan and Sachiko will bake scones and cakes while I assemble crustless sandwiches and make copious notes. Jeremy gets to work his magic behind the lens and make the food look beautiful.
When we’ve finished documenting the food, we will sit together and enjoy the feast. Nothing beats cookbook writing as an excuse to cook new foods and throw a party.
