Today is our first Tuesday of Downton Downtime 2013, at least for those who have watched all episodes up to Season 3. For the rest of you who have just discovered Downton, enjoy the ride and watch out for spoilers.
Each Tuesday I dish on Downton Abbey and other topical issues one might discuss at tea, served up with a recipe with an interesting history. You may find my Online Guide to Afternoon Tea helpful in understanding traditions and recipes to help you host your own tea party with family and friends.
Today’s treat is Manchester Pudding, perfect for paying homage to Matthew’s hometown.
