Sunday after noon High tea

Sunday after noon High tea
Welsh rarebit ( alt name Blushing Bunny with tomatoe )
Eighteenth-century English cookbooks reveal that it was then considered to be a luscious supper or tavern dish
Based on the fine cheddar-type cheeses and the wheat breads

Surprisingly, it seems there was not only a Welsh Rarebit, but also an English Rarebit, an Irish and a Scotch Rarebit, but nary a rarebit.

A legend mentioned in Betty Crocker's Cookbook claims that Welsh peasants were not allowed to eat rabbits caught in hunts on the estates of the nobility, so they used melted cheese as a substitute.

1 tsp English mustard powder
3 tbsp stout (Guinness :)
30g butter
Worcestershire sauce, to taste
175g Chedder cheese, grated
2 egg yolks
2 slices bread

1. Mix the mustard powder with a little stout in the bottom of a small pan to make a paste, then stir in the rest of the stout and add the butter and about 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
Heat gently until the butter has melted.

2. Tip in the cheese and stir to melt, but do not let the mixture boil. (
Very important !!!

Once smooth, taste for seasoning, then take off the heat and allow to cool until just slightly warm.

3. Pre-heat the grill to medium-high, and toast the bread on both sides. Beat the yolks into the warm cheese until smooth, and then spoon on to the toast and cook until bubbling and golden.
Serve immediately.

Sunday afternoon Tea Jazz with french fancy cakes.

Part of hosting a tea party is learning how to set the tea table.

Tea and tea snacks will be laid on a table covered with white linen tablecloth (or lace tablecloths) just before the guests arrive.

The tea table is usually set up in dining room, though the mingling of people may not be confined to the dining room.

Prepare two large trays, one for tea and one for the coffee and set them at both ends of the table.

Even though its a tea party, you should serve coffee for the coffee drinkers. You may also serve hot chocolate.

The cups and saucers are placed at the left of the tray, from the viewpoint of the person pouring the tea. That makes it easy to reach for him or her as tea is usually poured with the right hand unto the cup and saucer held by the left.

What if you don't have all the trays, table cloth and all that jazz ? Host it anyway! :)
