About this deal

This easy Lemon Curd recipe is a velvety soft, utterly delicious 4 ingredient lemony spread that is exceptionally easy to make at home, on the stovetop, in 10 minutes. all in all, good for a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but I have seen better places and had better tea at five-star hotels elsewhere.

A major criticism I had – and I can’t believe I’m writing this – but there were perhaps too many cakes (those who know me will know I’m a cake fiend! Once you have received your purchase, you become the owner of those items and they will be held at your own risk. They also do not give times for how long each recipe will take to prep or just start to finish - again this is a personal preference that I always enjoy seeing in cookbooks. A lot of the recipes use almond flour, dried fruits and nuts and alcohol, common ingredients at the time, none of which I ever bake with. As a fan of Downton Abbey, afternoon tea at Highclere Castle was on my to do list and it didn’t disappoint.To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. The series ended on such a positive and happy note but I was in tears just saying goodbye to all the wonderful characters.

The journey was less than glamorous despite first class coach travel on the train – I got locked in the train toilets for half an hour on a blisteringly hot day which melted my face and ruined my hair… After gracefully recovering from this ordeal we made our way through London to the Ritz in the back of a Black Cab. In official partnership with Downton Abbey and with over 150 stunning photographs featuring stills from across the series and right up to the latest film release, this collection of 70 delicious tea recipes is a lavish celebration of the elegant institution of afternoon tea. Full of photographs and quotes from Downton characters, with this book you can recreate the rich traditions and flavours of Downton Abbey Afternoon Tea time and time again. Given that all UK Pandemic legal restrictions were lifted on July 19th i arrived on the 25th July to find nothing had changed in Downton. This comprehensive guide in official partnership with the hit TV series Downton Abbey is a lavish celebration of the elegant institution of afternoon tea, filled with recipes, historical facts and etiquette guides.Therefore, we kindly ask that you view the menu prior to purchasing your ticket, to make sure you are happy with the selection given. As for the afternoon tea I think that was not great, Cannot fault the staff but the whole experience of it wasn’t good enough, The marquee where we sat and had the afternoon tea was done very cheaply inside, I was expecting something grand as we were meant to be having afternoon tea at a castle! Entrance to the Castle was just five visitors at a time whilst everyone else had to wait for approx an hour and more out in the cold, wind and rain. The Downton Abbey Afternoon Tea Cookbook is a treasured book of recipes, traditions, memories from the television series, and even etiquette of the era.

So, why not dust off your posh crockery, get your pinny on and bake (and make) these recipes for Friday night, whilst watching Viking TV with Lady Carnarvon serving Afternoon Tea at Highclere Castle. Gorgeous food photographs, lifestyle stills from the television series and recent movie, and character quotes bring the characters of Downton Abbey —and this rich tradition—to life in contemporary times.Watch this clip as the Dowager Countess demonstrates how one makes a proper cup of tea while still catching up on current events (video ITV).
