High Tea

I believe the English cuisine not to be the best, but their High Tea can surely please me. The atmosphere, the gestures, the special treats.. there's something that really makes me tick.

Something I make on a regular basis, must be English muffins. They cannot be compared to American muffins (a sort of moist cupcake) at all. They are a type of flat bread, roasted in a dry non-stick pan and split and toasted when you are ready to eat them. I normally make a bunch of 24 English muffins and I keep them in the freezer. Whenever we feel like having one, you just split them open and pop'm in the toaster. Spread some home made lemon curd (another favorite High Tea treat) on top and enjoy!

Lana likes to make scones, although she prefers baked goods that don't need that much time to prepare. When I feel like it, I try to make crumpets or even biscuits. Maybe it's a good idea to invite some ladies for a special High Tea!

Ook ik hou van High Noon Thea, heb het de eerste maal toen ik in Londen was gegeten en gedronken.

En idd, hun keuekn is niet zo denderend alhoewel ik hun ontbijt ook wel kan pruimen.

Maar als ik nog eens bij je mag vertoeven mag je ook rustig High Noon Thea maken voor mij...LOL
