Afternoon Tea - Hotel Dupont. DE
The Mid-Atlantic Tea Business Association recently held a destination meeting at the Hotel Dupont in Wilmington, DE. In addition to a behind the scenes tour of this luxurious hotel, the members of the Association enjoyed a Chocolate Tea. Once our tea orders were taken, we were presented with the three tiered tea tray that featured a tempting array of tea sandwiches.
The Tea Sandwiches included Nutella and raspberry preserves on brioche (top tier), Curry Shrimp Salad with shallots and cilantro on rye, Chocolate Ricotta orange supreme on white bread (middle tier), Mole Chicken Salad atop wheat bread and a baguette slice topped with Smoked Turkey and Colby jack cheese (bottom tier).
The scones featured during the month of October included a Cranberry White Chocolate Scone and a Brownie Scone served with Traditional Devonshire cream and Strawberry Jelly.
The pastries included Dark Chocolate Mousse Cup with Raspberry, Mini Peanut Butter Chocolate Cupcake, “Mudslide” Chocolate Cookie, Opera Torte Slice, White Chocolate Cherry Ganache Tart, and Chocolate Dipped Macaroon. Oh, yes!
