The Winter Wonderland Afternoon Tea ($65.00 per person) – features a selection of savoury and sweet selections with scones.
The Winter Wonderland Afternoon Tea features the following:
Roasted Spice Duck Slider
Smoked Salmon on Pumpernickel Crisp with creme fraiche
Garden Radish Poppy Seed Tea Sandwich
Waldorf Salad – seasonal fruits, celery and roasted walnuts
Medley of Mushroom Quiche
Corn Cream Croquette – chili lime crema
My favourites from these selections was the quiche and the croquette. The Corn Cream Croquette was a mix of mashed potatoes with sweet corn and the combination was comforting and delicious. The mashed potato was smooth and creamy and went well with the bright pops of freshness from the corn. The mushroom quiche was jammed packed with mushrooms making this mini tart an umami bomb.
Warm Eggnog Tea
Cranberry & Orange Financier Cake Wreath
White Valrhona Chocolate & Yuzu Mousse – mango compote
Mont Blanc Cream Puff
Classic Gingerbread Cookie
Ruby Chocolate Lace Lollipop
Forever Evergreen Cake Pop
Earl Grey Snowflake Macaron
The stand out dessert for me was the White Valrhona Chocolate & Yuzu Mousse. Crafted to look just like the snowy white mountains this delicate dessert was expertly crafted. The yuzu mousse was light and fluffy and the white chocolate was perfectly tempered resulting in an extremely satisfying crack when breaking into this stunning dessert
Another favourite by default for me was the Mont Blanc Cream Puff. I adore chesnuts and this little dessert did not disappoint.
The Winter Wonderland Afternoon Tea is definitely sweets heavy so if you have a big sweet tooth this will be the tea set for you!
