I love a nice Afternoon Tea, the Best British classic

What is Afternoon Tea? Print E-mail
Afternoon Tea is a tea-related ritual, introduced in Britain in the early 1840s. It evolved as a mini meal to stem the hunger and anticipation of an evening meal at 8pm.English Afternoon Tea at Four Seasons Park LaneFour Seasons Hotel Park Lane

Afternoon Tea is a meal composed of sandwiches (usually cut delicately into ‘fingers’), scones with clotted cream and jam, sweet pastries and cakes. Interestingly, scones were not a common feature of early Afternoon Tea and were only introduced in the twentieth century.

Afternoon Tea was initially developed as a private social event for ladies who climbed the echelons of society. It was only when Queen Victoria engaged in the Afternoon Tea ritual that it became a formal occasion on a larger scale, known as ‘tea receptions’.

These receptions could have as many as two hundred guests with an open ‘at home’ invitation to visit between 4pm and 7pm, during which they could come and go as they pleased; thiswas the genesis of the Afternoon Tea as we know it.

In Britain today Afternoon Tea is usually enjoyed as an occasional indulgence or to celebrate a special event such as a birthday, or a pre-wedding or baby shower party with a group of friends.

Bon Appetit,

what about cooking your own foie gras for christmas

How to devein a lobe foie gras (duck)

Video shows you step by step how to separate the two lobes, remove the veins and clean the foie gras, the process of devening foie gras is really very easy

How to cook a terrine of foie gras

In Gascony, foie gras is often cooked in a porcelain terrine in a water bath, then served in its terrine along with a serving spoon and a small bowl of hot water. Each person dips his spoon in the water to heat it so it will cut neatly through the liver. He then scoops out a portion and smears it on a slab of grilled coarse French bread.

A more elegant presentation is to slice the foie gras, then arrange the slices on a porcelain plate surrounded with chopped aspic and lightly toasted brioche. The foie gras can also be served with a variety of greens, flavored with a vinaigrette made with verjus and walnut oil.

The preparation and resting times for this terrine are 5 to 7 days, so plan accordingly. Begin about 1 week before serving.

Ingredients

  • 2 fresh Artisan duck foie gras, about 1½ pounds each
  • 1 tablespoon fine sea salt
  • 1½ teaspoons finely ground white pepper

Devein the foie gras see video

Put lobes in an earthenware dish and season with salt and pepper, spices and sugar, then gently rub into lobes.
then cover and chill for at least 12 hours, turning from time to time.Arrange in a terrine dish lined with clingfilm (let a little hang over each edge), of roughly 16cm x 11cm x 7cm, with the largest lobe at the bottom.
Cook the terrine in a bain-marie (a bowl over 2cm of boiling water), or in an oven at 180°C (350°F) for 40 minutes.
Once cooked, remove from oven and leave to rest at room temperature for a couple of hours, then keep in fridge.
Serve chilled, with a glass of chilled Monbazillac, Sauternes or Champagne.

Advice :

This is a relatively simple recipe, which depends mainly on the quality of the foie gras that you use, so try to find Grade A wherever possible.

Mauritius Diving With Nemo Club

Mauritius Diving

Mauritius regulations require that visitors dive accompanied by an instructor and escorted by a boat. All centers are managed by CMAS or PADI international diving instructors who can give courses from beginners up to experts and additionally organise snorkeling excursions.

Part 1

The West Coast offers:

An impressive underwater cave known as “Cathedrale” which starts as an underwater cliff just close to Flic en Flac and offers a spectacular beauty due to the topography of the place (caves, arches and cavities). The cave is populated by a variety of fish and various crustaceans.

Another site close to Flic en Flac is Rempart Serpent; this site has a large concentration of several species of morays, Lionfish, stone fishes. An excellent place to observe dolphins is near Tamarin Bay in the southwest, where a large group of dolphins can be found.
