Tea with Mrs Danvers

The authors of A Gothic Cookbook will dress up as Mrs Danvers from Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca and bring afternoon tea to you and your friends, family, colleagues or book group.
We'll prepare the entire spread described in the novel and served each day, at half past four, at Manderley, from the "dripping crumpets", scones and "sandwiches of a mysterious nature" to the angel cake, its "rather stodgier cousin" (a fruit-laced pound cake) and "that very special gingerbread". And we'll bring it to your home or a location of your choice.*
The spread is enough to serve 10-12 people (or you will have plenty of leftovers – and we will offer storage tips!).
*We will travel, on a mutually convenient day and time, to: Greater London, Greater Manchester, Co Durham, North Yorkshire, Northumberland, or Tyne & Wear. Pledge level limited to 3.

PLUS:

  • Signed first edition hardback
  • Ebook
  • Tea towel
