I love to express myself by writing, drawing and capturing things on camera. I find it so inspirational to look at other people doing this and hope my work has the same influence on you.
How civilised it must have been when Afternoon Tea was a delightful little ritual to participate in, at three or four, in the English home. Nowadays it's a treat and this menu is slightly more elaborate or substantial than just a slice of seed cake or buttered muffin with tea! However, when you only make the effort once in a blue moon, there is certainly excuse to lavish several of the variants in a single sitting! It is a nice get together to organise between friends and family, maybe sharing out the different elements of the 'tea' so the workload isn't put upon one individual making the whole experience relaxing for all. Here is a menu for inspiration and a few recipes and tips to help you on your way to the perfect Afternoon Tea!
Irresistible Jam and Chutney
Filling a shelf in the larder with homemade produce is one of the most satisfying accomplishments. A jar or two of these delightful gleaming gems will make a special gift to a loved one and will be all the more cherished because of the time and energy you have put in to making it yourself.
