French Tea


By Carole Manchester, Hearst Books, first edition, 1993. Hardback, with DJ. Delightful, but a bit lah-tee-dah. Wherein the former fashion director at Seventeen and Elle, now working “in decorative fabric styling for (ahem) private clients,” with two homes, in New York and Connecticut, writes a book on the glories of tea salons throughout France, providing recipes for such yummies as Tarte Tatin, etc., dropping the names of countesses in her introduction, thanking them for their hospitality during “my stay in France." Color photos throughout. Our favorite line in the book is Manchester thanking her Indian-heritage husband for being the “perfect tea-wallah.’ You too, toots. As New/As New.
