Head to this very cool and happening corner of London for afternoon tea with a twist! This isn’t your usual tea and scones in a hotel this is a selection of tasty sweet and savoury goodies at a renowned cookery school in Canary Wharf!
You’ll be watching and learning as the chefs do their thing in the kitchen at the same time as you sip a freshly-brewed tea or a proper Italian-style coffee. Tuck in to some yummy sweet food as they show you some tricks of the trade for coming up with delicious little ‘amuse bouche’ canapés and desserts that’ll wow your dinner guests next time you throw a party.
As you move on to the scrummy sandwiches as the savoury part of this afternoon tea as soon as you take a bite you’ll taste the difference. Yes it’s egg and cress but there’s another secret flavour in there that might surprise you…we won’t reveal the special ingredient and spoil the fun. And another quirky feature of the menu is the bread. No white sliced here it’s all about the focaccia and the crostinis for that Mediterranean twist to the whole affair.
In fact you will definitely want to take time to savour the food. There’s the home-baked ham that is full of flavour a million miles away from the watery ‘plastic’ ham you often see. And the home-smoked trout pate? Simply to die for. This is certainly an afternoon tea that is like no other.
And did we mention the stunning views of Canary Wharf? It’s hard to believe you’re so close to the chaos of central London as you look out of the arched windows onto the docks with yachts and boats bobbing up and down on the water.
We think this afternoon tea with a twist will appeal to your foodie friends who love to learn new recipes and pick up tips from the professional chefs all whilst you are being served with some absolutely delightful sweet and savoury goodies that make this afternoon tea so different from others you may have had before.
