The Magical Tearoom on The Hill - Recipes, Tales and Adventures
Let’s start at the beginning….. Why did I write this book? I love books, reading them, touching them, the covers, the paper, the smell and of course, pictures and I lose myself in the story, the history, the recipes and the photos.
I wanted my book to be interesting, moving, and funny but I wanted the recipes to be easy to follow. I wanted the photo, the ingredients, notes and instructions to all be together so you don't have to go back and forth with floury fingers.
In the book you will find out how the cakes and bakes got their names. Why did Custard Creams become Dashing Tom's Custard Creams? Why did Lemon Creams become Sasha's Lemon Creams?
I've also included various walks and cycles, starting with me growing up in Halifax, West Yorkshire, and some of my adventures with Beatrix, our Border Collie. I share my unplanned heart attack on Ben Lawers, with a helicopter rescue, leaving poor Beatrix behind on the mountain and then the tale of when Mother Murphy became Grandma - both heart-warming and heart-breaking.
As for the rest, I don't want to spoil the surprise for you.
A recipe book with a story. All the recipes gluten free and most are dairy free. There are a few recipes, like Caramel Shortbread, that have three different versions for you to choose from.
This is not just a recipe book, this is Mother Murphy's recipe book.
