Celestial High Tea!

Tuesday, December 17th, 2019

TEA TIME Tradition, Presentation and Recipes” This Miniature Edition, acquired while working at Gump’s, overflowed with fascinating content that guided ChezHelvetica in the creation of a High Tea for the Cava 5 – a group of highly intelligent, creative dear friends. Each one made a wonderful contribution to our gathering!

First Course: Delicious Tea Sandwiches – Egg Salad with Chives, Honey Smoked Salmon, and Pear Pecan Blue Cheese, paired with an assortment of Celestial Seasonings Herbal Teas and J Sparkling Wine. Second Course: Incredible Blueberry and Currant Scones, served with Somerdale Double Devon Cream, English Clotted Cream, Ollalaberry/ Blackberry Jam (made by my friend Priscilla) and Lemon Curd. Third Course: Desserts! Chocolate Crinkles, Orange Cookies, Ginger/TCHO Cocoa Powder Cookies (made by my niece Rachel) and Iced Pound Cake. Now wine, a luscious Twomey Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, donated by The Duncan Family. And then a Fourth Course: Besparkling Angels. Each Cava decorated a wooden angel with Glitter Glue for the perfect ornament to decorate their Chanukah Bush or Christmas Tree.

A lovely, angelic celebration of friendship!
