Ideas for a High Tea
March 12, 2018 04:43AM
I'm having a high tea at my house in a few weeks and I'm trying to get a menu together and would love to know some fresh ideas to serve. I have one gluten free guest and one who is pregnant but the rest will eat everything.

A mix of savoury and sweet and I'm up for a challenge!

I think High teas should be traditional, I don't want to try and work out what the food is, I like the predictable.
Therefore my list would include;

*Cucumber sandwiches and/or club sandwiches
*little savouries
*blinis with smoked salmon etc...
*bite sized sweet treats of ginger crunch, yo yos and other Edmonds cookbook kind of old fashioned favourites

As per Helen.

Cucumber, cream cheese sandwiches
Chicken and lemon mayo sandwiches
Beautiful mini cupcakes
Dainty scones with jam and cream
Mini lemon curd tarts
Small pieces of opera cake

For the gluten free brigade
little almond friands
macarons (watch that the icing sugar is gluten free)
use gluten free bread to make some of the sandwiches (remember to keep it away from surfaces where you have had gluten based things)

The pregnant one can eat pretty much everything on offer as long as mayo is bought and opened fresh (raw egg mayo is a nono, although the actual risk is pretty teeny, cream cheese and cream is also ok as long as it's freshly opened)
