Eat Like Royal-tea

Have you ever heard of Jam Pennies? These simple delights were Princess Margaret’s go to treat during her childhood. Did you know Her Majesty the Queen Elizabeth II absolutely loves chocolate cake? Her chef says she is very partial to chocolate, often selecting recipes for her meals that include the decadent ingredient.

The Royal Family’s Foodie Pleasures
The delicious orange scented scones with currants served with in our Victoria Day high tea is an adaptation of a traditional recipe from The Orangery at Kensington Palace. The warm, fluffy scones are a tribute to Queen Anne, who built a magnificent glass house to protect her citrus fruits. With a little dollop of Devon-style cream and a sip of Organic Earl Grey loose tea, we think this delightful treat is truly fit for a Queen or a King.
