The inspiration behind our Romeo and Juliet afternoon tea

  • A Rose By Any Other Name  – choux eclair filled with a raspberry and lychee diplomat cream, infused with rose inspired by Juliet’s musings on her love.
  • Under A Medlar Tree – set cream topped with a lightly spiced pear and medlar compote, with cardamom, ginger and vanilla inspired by Mercutio’s mirth at Romeo’s unrequited love for Rosaline. He will sit under the tree and wish his mistress were a fruit.
  • My True Love’s Passion – passion fruit and caramel macaron with citrus notes inspired by Juliet’s musings on her love from her balcony.
  • Such Sweet Sorrow – milk chocolate and toasted hazelnut tart with a touch of sea salt as Juliet bids goodnight to her Romeo, their sorrowful parting is also sweet because they think about when they shall next see eachother again.
  • Thus With A Kiss – smooth dark chocolate mousse bite infused with peppermint and wormwood with these word’s Romeo drinks the poison, kisses Juliet’s lips and dies.
