Tea and Scone Afternoons: County Style
Enjoy a Black River “High Tea” from 2 to 4 pm at Black River Bed and Breakfast (December to May).
Scones (my Mother’s recipe) are baked fresh for every Afternoon. They’re accompanied by shortbreads (the same recipe used by the chef at Buckingham Palace), and fruit tarts (my recipe).
Our goal is to showcase the many exceptional and creative products and ingredients from the County.
The honey is from Morrison Point Farm; the jams and jellies are from Hawkridge Homestead, Loyalist Jams, and Portland Bridge; the crackers, fermented cashew cheese and black garlic (!) are from Penny’s Pantry; many of the 20 varieties of black, green and herbal teas are from County Sunshine, and the cheeses are from Black River Cheese.
Black garlic? Yes, you read that correctly. On a cracker or piece of cheese, it’s out of this world. Cashew cheese? This amazing County indulgence is the definition of delicious. Jams and jellies include chive blossom, black locust, haskap, apple-horseradish, blue raspberry and other temptations.
So that you can totally indulge yourself, there’s Devonshire cream, flavoured butters, and French-press coffee.
If you ask, Brian and I will regale you with stories about our art and other collections. You can stand on something Queen Elizabeth stood on (and have your photo taken). And you can open the door to something previously owned by Canada’s most famous figure skater.
You can also view magnificent McMahon Bluff, a glacial masterpiece, and be amused by our many riparian and deck-feeder birds. (Throughout the year, we’ve recorded 61 different species.)
Groups of 4 to 8 are welcome. Please book one week in advance, $22 per person plus HST and gratuity. Gift certificates available. Our Tea and Scone Afternoons are offered until May.
