Halloween Tea - 2017

Every year we hold two Halloween Tea events in the tea room. These special events are frequently sold-out as soon as they are announced! Many guests make this an annual event, being sure they attend each year! After walking thru the haunted herb gardens, they come inside for our haunted tea.

We start with a salad, which was a Pear, Pecan, Cheddar Cheese and Red Onion Salad with a Maple Dressing. The contrast of sweet maple with tangy Dijon in the dressing provided a hauntingly delicious taste sensation!

The sandwich course could have been called 'here's looking at you' as there was an abundance of eyes this year! The sandwiches included a Ham & Cheese Coffin with a Peppery Mustard Mayonnaise. There was a Pimiento Cheese Pumpkin with a surprised look and a ghoulish Chicken Salad eyeball. A Googly eyed pineapple sandwich, a Herbed Spinach Ball, and a Witch's Cauldron with Brie and Orange Marmalade rounded out the plate.

The scone course included a Ghostly English Cream Scone with currant eyes and a triangular Pumpkin Pecan Scones. Small individual bowls of sweet cream and orange marmalade were at each place setting. Tart green apples were served with a sweet Caramel Cream Dip.

And for dessert, Roses and Bones mini Cake, a Mummy Chocolate Truffle, and Pumpkin Bread with whipped cream ghost. Yum!

What a clever presentation! Can definitely see why this is sold out as soon as it's announced!
