St. Patrick's Day Afternoon Tea

The tea room was abuzz with activity on St. Patrick's Day as we served Afternoon Tea and listened to favorite Irish tunes played by Sasanach, our favorite fiddler. The first course featured the Emerald Isle Salad, leafy greens, Kerrygold Dubliner Cheese, blueberries and Kiwi slices.
The sandwich course included a miniature toasted Reuben on Rye, Rolled Asparagus Sandwich with a honey, curry, lime spread, Irish Potato Bites with Kerrygold Skellig Cheddar and Corned Beef, a Wee Cottage Pie, and a Guinness Biscuit with Irish Chive Cheddar, Apple, and Pecan Filling.

We offered a few seasonal tea blends from the Larkin Tea Company such as Shamrocks & Shenanigans which is a chocolate strawberry flavored black tea and Irish Whiskey Cream, a smooth black tea, for the discerning taste.

The next course presented held a Spotted Dog Irish Soda Bread Scone and a slice of Orange Marmalade Tea Loaf. These were served with sweet cream and peach butter alongside a skewer of pineapple and green grapes.

Lastly, the trio of tasty desserts offered were a Chocolate Guinness Cake with a creamy frosting, Irish Cream Cheesecake with Lemon Curd and Blueberries, and the Leprechauns Special Green Cake with gold dust. Yum!

  The lively tunes of Sasanach  had us all toe tapping.
