Tea Party Recipes

There is a reason why I am only doing one tea party class this year and that is because they are so much work! It was so much fun and adding the food component to the class makes it extra special. Here is what we had at our class so you can recreate the night or try a recipe for yourself. 

Salad: Fresh organic lettuce, Salad Dressing and homemade sourdough croutons 

Salad Dressing

½ Cup Olive Oil

1 T. dijon mustard

1 T. garlic infused olive oil

3 T. white wine vinegar

1 T. Maple syrup

1 t. Dried basil

Salt and pepper to taste

Homemade Croutons:

Sourdough (this is the one I always use)

Olive Oil

Garlic Salt

Cube bread and toss everything together and bake at 400 until crisp 


1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas 

Lemon juice from one large lemon 

1/4 cup tahini

1 garlic clove

¼ C Olive oil  

1/2 t. ground cumin

1-2 t. Mild curry powder

Salt to taste

Mix in food processor until smooth

Cucumber and Avocado Sandwich

Homemade Sourdough toasted 

Mashed avocado with Redmond’s salt 

English Cucumber

Lemon and Pistachio Scones

I used this recipe and added lemon zest to the dough, used normal sugar which is why mine were lighter in color and then added more pistachios on top of glaze 

Orange and Rose Shortbread cookies

For the base I used this shortbread cookie recipe  and added dried rose petals (make sure they are organic and clean) and orange zest to the dough. Roll them out cut them and bake for 9-10 minutes 

Make a glaze for the top with squeezed orange juice, orange zest, rose petals and powdered sugar. Just dip and put them on a rack to dry. 

Lemonade Drink: ½ Crystal Light ½ white grape juice and lemon slices

Tea: I love the Taylor Brand fruit infusions. You can find them a few places online to be shipped from England.
