Who hasn’t heard of “tea and crumpets”? We all have, right? But how many have had warm homemade crumpets with creamy butter and homemade jam? This essentially English comfort food has been around for at least a few hundred years. Over that time, the crumpet has come to represent coziness, warmth, home and hearthside, the tea table loaded down with nice things… because where crumpets are, tea is usually not far behind… These spongy, cratered little savory cakes are meant to be toasted, slathered with butter and warm jam that melts into the little holes, creating an addictively tasty tea treat. Crispy on the outside and soft and moist in the middle…a crumpet is something special.
As author Margaret Johnson would say, all “you curious armchair travelers, nostalgic food excursionists and inventive home entertainers” take note. On May 14, 2014 at 6:00 PM Chef Krissy is offering a culinary workshop on the art of making these little gems. So, grab your apron and hurry to the tea room to join in the fun. Bring a friend to share in this unique culinary adventure, and be prepared for hands on participation. Are your taste buds ready? Nothing surpasses homemade crumpets! A lovely chat time with steaming tea and your own, expertly made, crumpets with butter & homemade jam will conclude the workshop. And remember, workshop gift certificates make very nice Mother’s Day presents.
