For those that know me, I am a Royal Albert addict. I own the set of “Old Country Roses” and it is my favourite collection. I collect teacups and saucers, and am a “high tea” lover!!

If you go to my soup recipe, in Winter Warmer, there are a few recipes you can find on the Tea Time website. I am definitely trying the SCONES!!!! and want to take photos of while doing it, and will probably set up a little high tea, and share with you what I do. I am excited!!! But I need to start somewhere!!! I can’t bring out the china because it is all in storage in Melbourne, and I will probably be moving again some time soon!

I am loving the Miranda Kerr Collection, it is pretty and feminine, and I adore the teapot!

Just like the Royal Albert website says!! Tea tastes better when served from a fine bone china teapot. The teapot is ONLY $99.95.

I can’t wait for the day I attend a “British Tea Party”. They are so fine, and up there! hehe

Go to Tea Fit for a Queen for a look at a trio of pretty tea sandwiches, and what recipes they are using for the celebration of the Queen. I absolutely love this article, and love the look of Coronation Chicken Sandwiches, and am going to try the recipe some time soon. I can’t wait to try the Royal Wedding Tea!!!! oooooo!!! It is found on the Capital Teas website.

Here is a recipe for Coronation Chicken Sandwiches if you can’t get onto the Tea Time Website.

Ingredients
  1. 1 tablespoon salted butter
  2. 1 cup chopped yellow onion
  3. 6 tablespoons Major Grey’s chutney*
  4. ¼ cup tomato puree
  5. ¼ cup water
  6. 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  7. 2 tablespoons curry powder
  8. 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  9. ½ teaspoon salt
  10. ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  11. 1 bay leaf
  12. ½ cup mayonnaise
  13. 3 cups finely chopped roast chicken
  14. ½ cup chopped toasted slivered almonds
  15. 3 tablespoons finely chopped dried apricots
  16. 2 tablespoons finely chopped green onion (green tops only)
  17. 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
  18. 2 tablespoons dried currants
  19. 12 slices potato bread
Instructions
  1. In a large sauté pan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion, and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is tender and translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Add chutney, tomato puree, water, vinegar, curry powder, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and bay leaf, stirring to combine. Bring to a simmer. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce is thick (like ketchup), 8 to 10 minutes. Pour sauce into a large bowl, and let cool completely.
  2. Remove bay leaf from sauce, and discard. Add mayonnaise to cooled sauce, stirring to combine. Add chicken, almonds, apricots, green onion, parsley, and currants, stirring to blend.
  3. Spread a thick layer of chicken salad onto a bread slice. Top with another bread slice. Repeat with remaining chicken salad and bread slices.
  4. Using a serrated bread knife, trim crusts from sandwiches, creating squares. (Discard crusts.) Cut sandwiches diagonally into quarters, creating 4 triangles.

Here is the Lady Carlisle set. It is a favourite and I absolutely love it. It reminds me of my Mum. I think it is her favourite. In our Melbourne house we had a dining room filled with china, and it was my favourite room of the house. It was very pretty, and I can’t wait for the day I settle in my own home, and decorate my own house with china and such! There is a Lady Carlisle tea set sale on the Royal Albert website.

One of my favourite TV Shows is Antiques Roadshow, and I have a LOVE for old antiquities, and anything that is ancient. The history and the era…. I just love it. Well, the 19th century days. I love hearing about antiques on the show and learning all about them!

Anyways, it is nice to share a recipe, and my love for Royal Albert!!! Lucky I am NOT living in a major city because I would be found buying collection after collection in the department stores!!!

What is your favourite Royal Albert set?

Do you like collecting china or antiques?
