Our Anniversary Cookbook
A long time Shreveport treasure, The Glenwood Village Tearoom, the home of Luzianna Pearl, was created in 1990 inside the old Glenwood Drugstore (est. 1923) by Proprietress Sharon McCullar. Today, the building houses this authentic British tea house and restaurant as well as several specialty boutiques offering handcrafted pearl and gemstone jewelry, British china, and toiletries. The Glenwood Village Tearoom has been nationally featured in Southern Living Magazine, Fine Dining Louisiana, Weekend Getaways in Louisiana and Mississippi, Fodor’s Travel Guide to the South, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, The Ft. Worth Star Telegram, Weddings and Destinations Magazines, and on The Travel Channel.
The Tearoom specializes in Victorian Era recipes dating from 1860 to 1903 and in the presentation of traditional afternoon, cream and high teas. The source of the recipes . . . Victorian cookbooks shrouded in the pale, musty scent of time gone by . . . The Cook’s Guide by Charles Elme Francatelli, Chief Cook to Queen Victoria dated 1903, The Ideal Cookery Book by M.A. Fairclough, Lady Principal of the Gloucester Road School of Cookery, and Everyday Cookery Books dated 1860 to 1900 by Isabella Beeton. Each recipe is slightly altered from the original so that it may function in the modern kitchen.
Our cook features recipes for afternoon tea scones, tea sandwiches, tea desserts, salads, soups, and miscellany.
