Happy Weekend! If you happened to catch my post from The New High Tea, I threw with Lili Fuller, you’ll remember that I promised you a follow up video tutorial and recipes. It’s a lovely time of year to invite your friends and family to enjoy a High Tea Party, but then again, when isn’t it a good time for High Tea? I mean, back in the day, the Brits considered Tea a daily meal.
Today we are showing you how to make gluten free tea sandwiches. Be sure to check out our video below and scroll down for our menu, invitation and shopping list.
First things first… We decided to create a menu that was entirely gluten and dairy free, but also delicious.
The New High Tea Menu:
Egg & Cucumber Tartines
Smoked White Fish Tartines with Arugula
Sweet Fig & Walnut Butter Tartines
Gluten-Free Scones with Coconut Cream & Assorted Jams
Mixed Berries with Mint
Botanical Chocolate Tea Tray
Assorted Choice Organic Teas & Milks
Next we created a guest list and sent an invitation using Paperless Post. They had so many options to choose from. Lili and I created a secret Pinterest board so we could share our ideas throughout the process. You can pin your Paperless Post invitation choices and invite your co-hosts to pick their favorites to narrow down the decision.
The LEMON TARTS were made using a recipe from one of my favorite cookbooks The Grain Free Gourmet. I just swapped coconut oil for butter. I warn you that it was a bit challenging to get the filling to thicken using coconut oil, but somehow we made it work. If you don’t have any dairy free guests on your list, I’d recommend just sticking to the butter. 🙂
