‘Boere-chic’ High Tea

High tea with a vintage, ‘boere’ twist.

Think enamel mugs, succulents, lace, burlap…

Food with a twist – not the usual high tea fare – but rather a selection of traditional finger foods with a modern twist.

The Menu:

Salad Jars to Share

Savoury Quiches

{Cherry tomato, basil & goat’s cheese, as well as bacon & caramelised onion}

Devilled Eggs

{With smoked trout & capers, on a bed of micro salad greens}

Smoked Trout Terrine

{Mini smoked trout terrines with fresh avocado an a cream cheese filling, on a bed of micro salad greens}
