Tea with the Bride-to-Be

Over the weekend, we celebrated the engagement of one of my good friends by going for afternoon tea at the Ritz-Carlton in Toronto. We're so civilized these days.

Let me tell you, it was glorious. We started with spinach and bacon quiche, moved on to egg salad and cucumber sandwiches, smoked salmon on mini croissants, then scones with devonshire cream and jam. After we had eaten all of that, they brought out a lovely selection of petit fours.

"wait - who puts jam in their tea?!" best quote of the day K :)

I don't even like raisin scones, yet I ate the entire thing. It was that good. Did I mention that along with the tea we also had champagne?

 We couldn't believe that each of us were responsible for six different sweets. The lemon meringue tart was my absolute favourite.

with the exception of a few nibbles, i ate all of these

My recommendation? Go. Go now. Go hungry. Thank you Jeannette and congratulations again!!
