The assortment of inventive recipes in this book, all inspired by characters and events from the original story, include such imaginative and enticing dishes as:
- Cheshire Cat’s Grinny Grainy Mustard Rarebit
- White Rabbit’s Cucumber Frames with Three Fillings
- Caterpillar’s Double-Stuffed Mushroom Caps
- Mock Turtle’s Mock Mock-Turtle Soup
- The Queen of Heart’s Red Velvet Cupcakes with Regal Cream-Cheese Frosting
There is also a special tea-party section inspired, of course, by the famously chaotic and surreal Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. This section includes a 16-recipe menu—four sets of four recipes (a sweet dessert, a savoury dish, a scone and a drink), one set for each of the characters at the Wonderland tea party (Alice, the Mad Hatter, the Dormouse and the March Hare)—complemented by tips for making the perfect pot of tea, dipping tea biscuits and reading tea leaves as well as an illustrated glossary of tea sandwiches.
Whether this book is for a child’s dreamy tea-party or a grown-up’s costume-fantasy event or a creative afternoon in the kitchen, Alice Eats will delight, entertain and inspire. Readers who are “curiouser and curiouser” about planning an Alice-themed event, who want to know what an “Eat Me” cake might taste like or who want to make a memorable English afternoon tea will find both classic and out-of-this-world ideas in Alice Eats.
