The savory treats reflect a bit of the Empire’s reach and include Chutney and Chicken Tea Sandwiches, Bombay Deviled Eggs and Miniature Chive Biscuits with Ham and Sweet Pepper, plus, of course, Cucumber Sandwiches. Have a bit more tea and a Shortbread Jam Cookie for a sweet, and a spectacular Strawberry and Rhubarb Pavlova, with crisp pistachio meringue, spring fruit and cream will be the grand finale. Lee Ann will demonstrate all baking techniques, with tea time chat and trivia on mothers, monarchs, and the history of tea. Tea cups and sugar tongs await. Hail Britannia!
