The compass (from the Latin "passus" ("step")) opened up the world to exploration and discovery. The principle of the magnetic needle was already known to the Chinese in the 3rd century BC and was first used by feng shui priests to tell them where and how to build. It was adapted to maritime navigation by Chinese sailors around the year 1000. The first compasses comprised a magnetic needle floating in a bowl of water, with the needle suspended on a thread or threaded through a reed. The Arabs perfected this by mounting the needle on a pivot. The compass arrived in Europe between the 10th and 11th centuries, enabling sailers to cross the oceans and explorers to discover the continents. The first instrument to resemble the modern compass is attributed to Portuguese citizen Ferrande (1483).

Recipes and inspiration for how to host the ultimate tea party with instruction from master patissier Will Torrent.
Arranged by season, with extra chapters on a Classic afternoon tea as well as a Showstopper afternoon tea, Will showcases his no-nonsense approach to the key techniques involved in patisserie, baking, chocolate work, and serving savory dishes in 80 beautifully illustrated recipes. An invaluable source of inspiration, there are also six guest recipes from top restaurants and hotels, including The Ritz, The Dorchester, The Gramercy Tavern, The Berkeley, Les Manoir aux Quat'Saisons, and Harrods.
Starting with a brief history of afternoon tea and how it came to be such a British institution, Will then offers up store cupboard recipes for basic jams, spreads, butters, and curds – everything you might need to serve alongside a carefully planned afternoon tea. Recipes include classics such as Smoked salmon and whipped cream cheese sandwiches, Cherry and almond bakewell tarts, Vanilla shortbread, and Fruited scones; classics with a clever twist such as Malted milk egg custard tarts, Cucumber sandwiches with yuzu and chive butter, and Crab mayonnaise eclairs; as well as more adventurous offerings of Prosecco, lime and mint jellies, Roasted walnut and miso shortbread, Lemon and lime matcha tea friands, and a very decadent Apricot and lavender almondine from Raymond Blanc at Les Manoir aux Quat'Saisons.
A real feast for the senses, this book will make you want to pull out all the stops and create your own gorgeous themed tea parties at home.
