Afternoon tea for 6


By Gordon…

I believe our days of entertaining 100 people at one of our dress up gigs, or even hosting a good size dinner party at home could well be a thing of the past.

However, we still like to entertain and last weekend we invited four of our ‘new’ friends around for a little international Sunday afternoon tea.

Tracy was from Taiwan, Mayumi &Yoshi from Japan and Shaun an Aussie.

Sonia was on Romanian ‘windmill’ duty and requested I source the required items i.e. flour, eggs and milk.

The cost of ingredients varies slightly from shop to shop to the market but local ingredients are priced for the local population.

Milk is full cream long life Australian and If you can do without triple sifted organic buckwheat, semolina, spelt, quinoa, or indeed gluten free no flour / flour (a concept that could take up a whole English language class) a bag of ‘flour’ is exactly what you get. We just hoped it wasn’t self raising and luckily it wasn’t.

Eggs were bought from the market 4 = A$1. They were next door to the papayas where I purchased a good size fruit for A$1.

Please note the bottle on the table was not a prop or a pick me up drink for the chef but was the makeshift rolling pin.

    1. Veronica, Sonia is a lucky girl to have such a rich history of family and cooking, which Gordon has also contributed to.
      There is no doubt that world wide, that great times revolve around good food shared with friends and family. XX
