An inter-war years sandwich recipe found on CookIt
Cucumber sandwiches were often served as part of a formal afternoon tea. They had been very fashionable for the upper classes in the Edwardian era and had now become part of ordinary people’s afternoon tea.
Lyon’s Corner Houses were a popular place for people to go and have tea, scones and sandwiches. This recipe comes from a former employee of Lyons, Mrs Olive Bloomfield.
