A buzzing Afternoon Tea
A buzzing Afternoon Tea

12/03/2015

Fresh for Spring, One Square has pushed the pastry boundaries with the launch of its all-new honey and floral themed "Afternoon Bee" which packs a fruity punch.    

Show-stopping highlights include hand-made sugar bees which adorn heather honey & Manjari chocolate ganache macarons garnished with bee pollen, alongside colourful flower pots that are filled with tiramisu, vanilla cream and chocolate soil, topped with a chocolate daisy.  

Afternoon Bee starts with an amuse bouche of lemon posset with fennel biscuits followed by savoury delights including a parsnip & honey shot with parsnip foam, a brown shrimp tart, and soy & lime glazed chicken served on herb focaccia. 

The mouth watering desserts that follow include Seville orange & apricot tea loaf, passion fruit meringue tart decorated with an edible flower, honeycomb & blueberry cheesecake and a chocolate & caramel mousse that is garnished with a white-chocolate image of buzzing bees. 

The traditions of Afternoon Tea have not been overlooked with the offering of traditional, lavender & chocolate and sultana scones, served with clotted cream while manuka honey lemon curd adds a touch of luxury to this exquisite experience. Afternoon Bee is served with a choice of enveloped or loose leaf fine teas and infusions that are traditionally prepared at the table. 

This delicious culinary treat is available, daily, in One Square, between 2.30pm and 5.30pm throughout April and May 2015 and costs £25 per person. To book, please call 0131 221 6422 or visit www.OneSquareEdinburgh.co.uk for more details.   One Square, 1 Festival Square, Edinburgh EH3 9SR
