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).

On Wednesdays I also offer interactive baking classes. These classes offer a further opportunity to learn how to make more teatime treats and desserts in a relaxed and fun atmosphere in Giuliana’s Kitchen.

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

Lemon Curd – A delicious spread made from fresh lemons. Use with scones or as a filling for a sponge cake
