My Fantasy Nutcracker Tea Menu by Laura Childs

Monday, November 9th 2015 @ 12:02 PM

Themed teas are a particular favorite of mine and I love to host them.  After all, what guest doesn’t adore being part of a Garden Tea, Rose Tea, French Tea, or even a Book Tea?  But I’ve never done a Nutcracker Tea.  Probably because the Holidays are already fraught with so many activities.  Or maybe – just like the esteemed ballet itself – a Nutcracker Tea strikes me as being a huge production.

However.  If I were to put together my fantasy Nutcracker Tea, I would adorn my table with sugar plum fairies and toy soldiers and my menu would look something like this:

Jeweled scones.  These would be my favorite cream scones studded with bits of red, green, and gold candied fruit.

Sliced smoked salmon and dilled cream cheese spread on triangles of delicious dark bread.

Prosciutto and brie cheese on toasted baguette slices.

Curried chicken salad on toasted brioche.

Cranberry cream puffs and spiced pear cake for dessert.

Keemun and Yunnan tea.

To be perfectly honest, now that I’m looking at this menu, it doesn’t look all that complicated.  So if you should happen to get an invitation for a Nutcracker Tea . . . well, I promise that you’re in for a treat!

Enjoy!
