If you are a Downton Abbey fan, you know the importance of afternoon tea. If you aren’t a fan, well, afternoon tea is a tradition worth exploring. So join me for a Sunday Afternoon Tea as we experience some of the elements of afternoon tea.
While tea is the namesake and certainly important, it’s the food that really takes center stage – or should I say – center tray. Traditionally, there are three types of food served – savory dishes, usually small tea sandwiches, scones and sweets. Often served beside the scones is clotted cream and lemon curd.
For this class, our savory tea sandwich will be smoked salmon herb cheese triangles. We will make lemon curd and some small pastry rounds if you don’t want to put it on the scone. We will make a traditional cream scone. Lastly, we’ll make an English Tea Cake reminiscent of the type the the Queen Mother just adores.
What would afternoon tea be without tea? We will brew up two different types of black tea to taste some of the differences.
Don’t miss this fun event – be sure and make your reservation for Afternoon Tea. This would be a great class for a Mother/Daughter outing. Join me as we enjoy this British Tradition.
