Tea time!

April 12, 2010


Last week I had a lovely afternoon when my friend, Maddy and her dog Belladog came over for tea.  I don’t believe I have a drop of English blood in me, but I do love tiny sandwhiches, pastries and berries with cream and chatting with friends.  I have been to Victoria and had high tea at the Empress hotel and found some books at the Buchart gardens, so I had some good ideas.  Iron Chef always writes out his menu, so I thought it would be a good start.


Menu for Tea


Sparkling wine a la juice d’orange

Fruites salade


assorted cheeses



Sweet berry tea

Cucumber fingerlings

Ginger carrot triangles

Salmon pinwheels

Blueberry scones

Jam crumpets



Fruit tarts



  Along with a boquet of fresh flowers, my grandmother’s hand stitched spring table cloth and special china cups and dishes we had a lovely setting.  It was just a shame that the party had to be indoors as the rain was really coming down outside!
