Vegan MoFo 2019, Thursday 8th August: Afternoon tea – what would you serve up for a classic British afternoon tea to impress Mary Berry?
Phew, only just made it today! When you reach a certain age, keeping the old body ticking over requires some maintenance. Today I had a visit to the doctor and the dentist – both routine, nothing to report.
Having spent most of the day charging around on foot (I don’t drive a car) I was running out of time for this but just made it before the rain started, so I could get a photo in the garden!
There are three types of sandwich all on different sourdough breads: egg mayo and cress, hickory-smoked ham, mustard and lettuce and cream cheese and cucumber. All vegan obviously! I was going to cut the crusts off but then changed my mind as I am not a baby! On the next layer up are coronation chickpea vol-au-vents. On the top layer are scones, homemade raspberry jam and crème fraiche.
I have a newly-found respect for people who create this sort of thing is cafés and restaurants – I’m bloody knackered!
