Everything stops for tea

In his new book, chef Mat Follas has created some delectable teatime treats, which promise to tantalise your sweet tooth and allow you a Mindful break


Winner of MasterChef in 2009, Mat Follas opened the Bramble Cafe & Deli in 2016, near his home in Dorset, where he lives with his family. Despite growing up in New Zealand, Mat admits that the food he is drawn to is ‘traditional English fare’, and there is nothing more traditional than afternoon tea which, for Mat, is a treasured childhood memory. ‘I remember having afternoon tea with my grandmother in a cafe in Auckland; it felt like entering another world, one where the pace was slower, the tea was served in teapots, and the cakes looked like little works of art’, he says.

A perfect pause

With the recipes in his book, Mat shows how you can create this ‘other world’ in your own home and enjoy the joy and escape it brings from the busyness of everyday life. You will find well-known classics, which Mat has evolved into ‘easy, foolproof, well-tested recipes’ – chapters include Cakes & Scones, Biscuits & Cookies, Slices & Tarts, Dainties and Patisserie, as well as Savouries & Sandwiches, together with advice on making the perfect cup of tea, or hot chocolate. Take a look at these mouthwatering creations for inspiration and get baking!

About Psychologies

What happens when you don’t like what you see in the world? Our dossier gives you the low-down on what you can do to step up and make the world a better place - be it making small changes in your community to founding a charity that will make a massive impact on the world. We also invite you to lighten up and have some fun this month. Katy Regan signs up to a comedy improvisation workshop – with surprising results. Suzy Bashford channels her inner punk and delights in swearing more and caring less what other people think. Still in need of some laughs? Meet Emma Stroud, Psychologies ‘clown in residence’, who must be the first person to conduct a TED talk dressed as a banana. It’s going to be an interesting month!
