PA Tea Festival - Food Vendors

 Chef Dani from The Red Brick Bakery & Tea Room set up a food booth in Rosemary Alley alongside the row of vendors. She brought a delicious array of chicken salad, barbecue, soup, cookies, scones, tea and pastries for festival attendees. The supersized chocolate chip cookies were Cedar's favorite!

The Red Brick Bakery and Tea Room is located in Red Lion, PA. We were fortunate that Chef Dani and her team were willing to travel and cater for this event among her busy schedule.
For a peek into Afternoon Tea Service in the Red Brick Tea Room, check out this blog post from 2014 when our family headed to Red Lion to enjoy a special tea.

There was plenty of seating available in Rosemary Lane to sit down and enjoy your luncheon selection.

In Sweet Remembrances Tea Room, Nancy was serving either a Cream Tea or a One Plate Afternoon Tea with your choice of a pot of tea. This life size menu board, placed in the garden listed all the options that were available.

The Afternoon Tea included a few different tea sandwiches (Chicken Salad on Croissant, Swiss Cheese & Sundried Tomato Tarts, and Hummus with cucumber & red onion), fresh fruit, English Cream Scone with cream and jelly, Carrot Cake Mini Muffin and a Shortbread Teapot Cookie. The sandwich variety was different on the second day of the event.
The Cream Tea included the English Cream Scone with cream and jelly, a slice of Orange Glazed Poppyseed Tea Bread, and fresh fruit.

                                                                                        Seating was available in the tea room and also in the garden.
The garden seating was most popular on Friday, but with the temperature drop overnight, seating in the tea room on Saturday was a welcome relief to the chillier morning temps.

Food was one thing we didn't have enough of at our first tea festival. It looks like you had it well covered and delicious too. Next year we are already planning a cream tea event under a tent. Do you make your cream or use the real stuff? Not sure which direction I will go.

I think your one plate Afternoon Tea looks amazing. I would love that right now!

That event and the tea items look wonderful! Nancy's one plate tea service is perfect!
