Click on the above photo to see how I am doing, preparing for my English Tea Party This afternoon. Work in Progress! Click on the above photo to see a pictorial record of the tea party preparation. Pictures were taken throughout the day.

Fantastic renditions of English puddings and desserts have started been springing up all over the net. A truly international bunch of bloggers have joined in the fun. It's quite exciting. I am busy today On Sunday 23rd April I was busy preparing for an English Tea Party I am was having. As they day progresses progressed (and before the inevitable stress kicks kicked in), I will try and load loaded up pictures of work in progress to my Flickr English Tea Party Set. Please note, these are not going to be amazing styled photos, this is the real world, folks, - a simple snapshot of what is was really going on in my kitchen!

    Hi Sam,

    The food looks terrific!!
    I love Acme Bread Co.!
    I tried banoffi for the first time in Anguilla last December at this B+B operated by a woman from Australia and her 2 daughters. Such an awesome dessert... it was one of the highlights of the evening!! We sampled a 15 year old rum from Guyana w/ it. Great combo!
    Hope you had a super St. Georges Day!

    Bruno

    My goodness, Sam, what a gorgeous spread! And what was that bit about these NOT being amazing styled photos? Stunning, my dear. And all this while you are working overtime--amazing!

    Happy St. George's Day. I hope you enjoy it.

    You had me hooked right from the first photo with the McVitty biscuits -- I adore them. What lucky guests! Cheese is a fine addition, and potted shrimp is familiar from a Southern kitchen. This was really fun to "watch" as you pulled it together. Thanks.

    Yum yum! And I'm with kudzu on the biscuits. We sell them at my place of work and I fight off the urge to bring home a package almost every other day.

    Thanks so much for the Pud event -- Chopper and I had a grand time creating our first ever boiled Brit pud!

    I love your real time progress on flickr, what a great idea. You could show Londoners a thing or two - there was very little fanfare for St George around these parts!

    This picture is stunning Sam. I love the little 'ice cream fairy' (at least it's how i call her) over the fairy cakes.

    Beautiful!!!
