As well as a fantastic masterclass with Eric Lanlard, we got to enjoy his bespoke afternoon tea hosted in The Epicurean Restaurant
There are two afternoon tea menus that rotate throughout your cruise. We visited on a Menu B day.
Smoked Duck Breast, Raspberry and Cucumber in a Dark Chocolate Macaroon
Smoked Salmon and Keta in Spinach Bread with Crème Fraîche and Black Pepper
Cherry Tomato and Baby Mozzarella Tart Infused with Pesto
Dark Chocolate Cannelloni with Caramelised Apple
Lemon Meringue Trifle with Blackcurrant Coulis
Pistachio and Strawberry Tart with Strawberry Pearls
Financier Cake Infused with Lemon and Cardamom
Traditional and Golden Raisin Scones with Individual Clotted Creams
As you’d expect everything on the afternoon tea was delicious, but the stand outs for me were the Cherry Tomato and Mozzarella Tart and the Pistachio and Strawberry Tart – the pastry on both was so light and crumbly.
A surprise visit from the man himself rounded off a lovely afternoon which culminated in a much needed nap!
The Eric Lanlard Afternoon Tea is a surcharge of £15pp
