It goes without saying, Ireland is Margaret Johnson’s favorite place in the world. Her passion for the country and its cuisine jumps from the pages of her latest collection of recipes, Teatime in Ireland (Ambassador International; December 2019; $19.99, paperback). It’s Johnson’s twelfth cookbook overall and eleventh focusing on Irish cuisine.
Irish tea is far more than just a hot drink to go with a scone and jam; it’s an important custom that serves as a symbol of hospitality, friendship, and pleasure. Afternoon tea is also one of the most popular forms of special occasion entertainment (bridal showers, baby showers, ladies’ luncheons).
Teatime in Ireland features as an entertaining guide and as the perfect gift for those who are interested in history of Ireland and Irish heritage.  The book captures Ireland’s culinary beauty of this cultural way of life, and it includes more than 50 recipes.

“People drink coffee on the go; you take a moment for tea.”

Teatime in Ireland pays tribute to the delightful ritual of “taking tea,” both formal and informal, and invites you on a tasting tour of Ireland where tea-drinking serves as a symbol of hospitality, friendship, and pleasure. From her first visit in 1984, Margaret Johnson has forged an indelible bond with Ireland and Irish food, and she shares her continued passion in her latest cookbook devoted to the special relationship Irish people have with tea.
You’ll learn a bit of Irish tea history; be amazed that not even the Easter Rising could keep the ladies of Dublin from their tea and cakes; and discover a treasure trove of recipes for hosting your own special occasion afternoon tea.
From homespun recipes like Egg and Tomato Sandwiches and Buttermilk Scones to more ambitious sweets such as Battenberg Cake and Millionaire’s Shortbread, Teatime in Ireland provides a delicious culinary and cultural experience. From country castles and Kerry kitchens to casual tearooms and Dublin drawing rooms, this colorful collection offers more than seventy recipes that will take you seamlessly from a morning cuppa to an afternoon tea party.
