Afternoon Tea By Way of Pakistan

Well, apparently Blighty's summer hasn't been this sunkissed since 1976, the year of the drought and waterstands in the streets. For once BST (British Summer Time) actually means something and in the process it seems that Britain's karma is, well...calmer. It's true the sun brings out the happy quotient in our nation's psyche, it's all shorts, havaiianas, festivals and a work can wait attitude...hallelujah, perhaps there is a short term plus side to global warming.

When my favourite foodies at the Guardian got in touch to find out how the Rajah was holding out in the sun, I shared with them the menu for my Pakistani style afternoon tea..."okay we're sending a photographer over and we want the recipes". Captured beautifully by Eve O'Sullivan in the Guardian's Cook supplement you can check out the recipes and the conversation around the table here
