High Tea Review
28th June 2018
A triple-tiered Old Country Roses stand housed all the afternoon tea treats, and there looked to be a really nice balance of sweet and savoury elements. On the top tier was a selection of vol-au-vents; Prawn Marie Rose, Mushroom and Goats cheese, and Feta and sun-blushed Tomato. All three had the perfect ratio of filling : puff pastry case, and were neither too wet nor too dry in the mouth.
The Marie rose sauce had a lovely tang to it that complimented the prawns beautifully, and a scattering of fresh parsley gave it an extra burst of flavour when eaten. The earthy taste of the mushrooms was lightened really nicely by the light salty edge of the goats’ cheese, and the bright notes of the Feta and Tomatoes was just perfect for this summer treat.
