This month, my dear friend Carolyn introduced me to one of her favorite traditions – afternoon tea. After a few of my friends studied abroad in London, they came back obsessed with having afternoon or “high” tea every weekend. The prices charged by local hotels here are a bit extravagant for the amount of nourishment you receive, so we’re reserving the experience for the holidays : )
We went to the Taj Boston and had the “Taj Royal” – a selection of savory mini sandwiches plus a tray of sweets. Below: Prosciutto olive & cheese, egg salad, cucumber & cream cheese, smoked salmon & caviar, and lobster puffs. The sammys seem pretty easy to whip up for a house party as well.
I’m behind on reviews and will probably post again this week, but for readers who are “signing off” and going home: I wish you a safe and happy holidays, and I look forward to exchanging more tips and good finds with each of you in the coming year!
