Afternoon Tea With Candice Brown At Dalloway Terrace

Discovering Dalloway Terrace was probably one of the best things I ever did, because it has been my go to in the city for some time now. Having eaten breakfast, lunch, dinner and consumed hot chocolate cocktails there, I think you could say i’m a regular. Apart from the fact I hadn’t tried their afternoon tea… yet.

My friend Angie had hosted two afternoon teas in collaboration with Dalloway Terrace but I sadly couldn’t make either of them. However, when I was invited to try an afternoon tea made by Great British Bake Off winner from 2016, Candice Brown, I couldn’t say no. Candice Brown had put on quite an afternoon tea, with some delicious treats on offer for our evening experience, definitely not your average Wednesday evening!

Wandering back into the familiar setting on Dalloway Terrace, where the lights twinkled above, grey cosy blankets draped over the seats and the long marble table was set up for an exceptional evening.

Perrier Jouet filled the champagne flutes that sat on the tables, toasting to an amazing collaboration between Candice Brown and Dalloway Terrace. Her smile lit up the room as she shared her story and you could see the intense passion in her eyes.

It was inspiring to hear Candice’s journey and how her passion for baking had become a reality. I for one know how difficult it is to bake and I have never done anything quite as complex as Candice Brown had put together for us.

We found our seats that were decoratively placed in front of each placing with our names on. Ready to taste Candice’s wonderful afternoon tea.

Each tier was full of so many lovely delicacies, starting with the bottom tear of savouries.

There was a leek & smoked haddock tart with gruy√®re cheese, beetroot cured salmon with cucumber and dill relish served on sourdough bread, chicken and chorizo with tomato chutney in a granary roll and finally mayonnaise and cured streaky bacon in pain de mie. As I don’t eat pork or seafood, I was kindly given a substitute of plain egg mayonnaise sandwiches and leek and cheese tarts.

The scones served were a mix of savoury and sweet, with feta & courgette along with orange and cardamom, served with Devonshire clotted cream and homemade preserve. I’m definitely more of a sweet as opposed to savoury person, therefore I preferred the orange and cardamom scone. The scone itself had a lovely fresh orange aroma and the cardamom gave it a nice spiced flavour.

The final tier presented us with the much talked about peanut butter and jelly profiteroles (which were to die for!), lemon, Half Hitch gin and poppy seed lemon drizzle cake, meringue kisses that were filled with a sweet yet tart passionfruit curd and a mint, chocolate and coconut cake with whipped ganache. It almost tasted like an after eight in cake form, absolutely delicious.

Candice Brown had put together such a wonderful afternoon tea, everything was moist and flavoursome with a smashing creative flair too. It was a real pleasure to meet Candice Brown herself and I can assure you she is as sweet and humble as she was on Great British Bake Off.

If you get the chance, I would head down to Dalloway Terrace and try out Candice’s afternoon tea whilst you can!

Until next time…
