Pinecone Cottage Tea House – A Celebration of Celtic Cooking Afternoon Tea

March 18, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Pinecone Cottage Tea House – Celebration of Celtic Cooking Afternoon Tea flyer

Charming as a whitewashed cottage, and cozy as tea and scones by the fire, this Celtic Afternoon Tea will draw you into the culture and character of the Irish, who traditionally lived close to the land and the changing of seasons. This menu is an interpretation of recipes I have collected from trips to Britain and Ireland which is by and large a wholesome cuisine based on the richness of the earth’s bounty. It is simple and tasty, reflecting the quality of its ingredients and wonderful, homemade breads and baked sweet treats. Taste the Tradition. Slainte!
