Chic tea party in Paris
Tea parties for kids (and us adults too) are fun, really easy to prepare and don’t have to be a hassle. Coloured plates, glasses, mint water and finger food make a good start.
My friend Selena (super mother of one and hard working girl) had us over in her gorgeous white toned Parisian flat yesterday and she prepared beautiful roast chicken doused in gravy sauce, we served some home flavoured crisps (try buying the reduced salt kind and add drops of vinegar/ chilli pepper powder/ pepper/ thyme/ coriander). These personal versions of chips/crisps are gorgeous to eat and always a real success with children.
We served Melon for those who wanted (good tip: to find ultra ripe melon, tap on the fruit itself, if it makes a hollow noise, its good to eat plus if it smells sweet too) and I prepared Chocolate & Chestnut fridge cake, something I adapted from a Nigella Lawson recipee. It went down almost immediately and entirely. We washed some of this down with my favourite organic herbal teas (Pukka teas).
Special kiss to Selena and Ro for a beautiful beautiful day, merci les filles xxx
