Afternoon Tea Classes

10.00 am – 1.30pm
What your Afternoon Tea Class will include:
As part of the afternoon tea class you will receive step-by-step instructions and recipes for making scones, shortbread and speciality sandwiches.
You will also receive a written reminder page of special ‘tips’ learned throughout the class.
After the baking and preparations in the kitchen, we sit down and enjoy a full afternoon tea in the sitting room (or drawing room) – see menu below. This is an ideal opportunity to practice English etiquette and conversation in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
Come with a good appetite! I will also provide a doggy bag* for you to take home. *(a popular expression for samples to take home).

There are two classes A and B held on alternate weeks. Please get in touch via the booking page and I’ll let you know which dates are available.
Victoria Sandwich (Sponge) – A delicious jam filled Sponge Cake named after Queen Victoria
Sherry Fruit Trifle – A very traditional English dessert, usually served on special occasions
Florentine Biscuits – Luxurious chocolate coated, crispy biscuits made with candied citrus fruits, glacée cherries and almonds
