The #LetsLunch post for this month, October, is ‘High Tea’ …and how we love high tea in our house. We are on holidays (vacation!) this week – school is out and we are having a break at the beach with our teenage kids. So what better time than to whip up something DE-LICIOUS for afternoon tea.
In our family, we love tarts – both savoury and sweet! My late mother-in-law Talia used to make the simplest and most delicious raspberry tart, and that recipe is now in our cookbook.
We made the first part of this #LetsLunch recipe (tiny little lemon tarts) for daughter Jessie’s high tea (we really do love it!) for her 17th birthday a few months ago. This time we thought we’d add a meringue topping and make tiny little lemon meringue tarts/pies.
The kitchen here is limited, but we did our very best and we are happy with the result! I enlisted Jessie’s help to make them, and we knew that the boys with us (sons and friends) would be more than happy to do the tasting and critiquing. They consider themselves expert at both!
