Make your way to Canary Wharf or Chelmsford for a delicious Afternoon Tea with a creative twist. You’ll enjoy a feast of home smoked trout pate, baked ham in finger sandwiches and delightful sweet canapes and French macaroons, all served with your choice of freshly brewed tea or barista-style coffee, but for an added treat you’ll also be a spectator at a fascinating demonstration by one of the Smart School of Cookery’s talented patisserie chefs. Watch as your host chef prepares lovely sweet canapés and desserts right in front of your eyes, and learn the secret ingredients and tricks of the trade that go into making the fabulous spread before you. You’ll get to sample a few treats fresh from the chef’s preparation board, and no, you definitely won’t have to help with the washing up afterwards, that’s a promise!
This is a particularly stylish take on the traditional Afternoon Tea treat, with delicacies that could include home-smoked trout paté on a crisp crostini, home-made focaccia bread, lime-cured cucumber sandwiches and of course a tempting array of delicious little cakes and puddings. A great way to learn the secrets of the patisserie chefs, whilst sampling their freshest creations.
