Hi Everyone!!! I have to apologize because it has been so long since my last post! It’s summer and well… there has been a lot going on! But I do have a lot of really cool recipes that I have been working on for you! I promise!
Anyways, I am back now and I want to tell you all about a really cool dining experience I had recently, that I thought you all might enjoy reading about it. As some of you may know, from my previous post on a Traditional British Breakfast, my little sister studied abroad last summer in London. In addition to the British Breakfast she also had been telling us about how she had high tea in England. Well, we found this place called Dallywater’s, in Geneva, NY and we decided to check it out! This place has all kinds of British food, and serves traditional British tea, which is what we had. This place is super cute and Laura said that it was just like what she had in England!
My sister and I decided to split the tea for two, and the meal is awesome! You first get to choose your own tea and they bring you out a cute teapot with a cozy on it. I chose the Dallywater’s Blend Supreme, and it was really a great tea. And the tea is bottomless, which is also awesome… they just keep refilling it! Then you get to choose two sandwiches each. I chose the Ham Hollendaise & Asparagus and the Cheddar Cheese & Chutney. My sister chose the Mint Cream Cheese & Cucumber and the Coronation Chicken (lightly curried). Of course we shared, and they were all excellent, but the Ham Hollendaise & Asparagus was definitely my favorite! The Coronation Chicken was a close second!
The next part of the meal was probably my favorite part. A raisin scone with clotted cream and jam. It was amazing… and I have decided to learn how to make raisin scones! It will be a future post for sure! For dessert, you get an assortment of pastries, we had a cupcake, a lavender truffle, and an almond tart, all of which were yummy, although at this point in the meal, I was really full and couldn’t eat much more. My Dad helped with that! :-)
The owners were very friendly and chatted with us about local wineries and even gave us a few recommendations of wineries to visit.
My only complaint is that the meal is REALLY heavy on bread and carbohydrates. I normally try to limit these and normally avoid bread all together. I certainly do not eat like this all of the time, but for a treat it is worth it! This is a very unique experience. They also do have an entree menu, so if you want to try to be healthier than I was, there are options here. Overall, it was a great experience and I would definitely recommend this place for something different, and a big treat!
On a side note, my baby passed the Canine Good Citizenship test last night! Congratulations Maria!!! :-)
