The Inside Out Chef – Eats out
Over the summer, I have enjoyed being a guest at other people’s events. After returning from holidays I met up with friends at the Pommery – a pop up champagne bar in the Signet Library – for afternoon tea. We spent a wonderful couple of hours sipping champagne, followed by lots of of tea and coffee.
The afternoon tea started with some wonderful savories and sandwiches.
Followed by scones, cakes and pastries
I was not able to finish all the tasty delights, so our waitress boxed them up for me to take home, that’s what I call service.
As an occasional supper club host it is nice to attend other supper clubs. When I started hosting my own supper clubs, I heard great things about Charlie and Evelyn’s Table – when I first became interested in attending other supper clubs to see what it was all about, they were on a maternity break and then they moved house so after a year of waiting impatiently, I had my place at their table.
I had a relaxed enjoyable evening with great food, company and host; I will let the pictures I took of their delightful food tell the story
To go along with the coffee, they had made lovely mini-meringues:
For anyone thinking of visiting a supper club, whether for the first time or not, I would highly recommend to book a place at Charlie and Evelyn’s table, and a big thank you to Chris, Rachel and Eva for a great night
This weekend the Edinburgh Cake Ladies hit the road to Cammerlaws Farm for afternoon tea- we had a beautiful drive down through stunning countryside.
We arrived at Cammerlaws Farm and were met by Pamela (a fellow Cake lady) and her mum Anne- they showed us into the warm and cosy livingroom, where we were served a glass of fizz – as I was driving, I was offered a glass of chilled fizzy apple, which was lovely.
While we tucked in to a tasty bites, the dinning room was being set with our afternoon tea
My favourite of the day was the choux buns, filled with honeycomb and cream:
As this is a working farm, we had the opportunity to meet some of the newest residents – calves born the night before. This allowed us to stretch our legs and make room for the larger cakes.
I washed this down with some very tasty hazelnut tea.
I think Cammerlaw Farm would be a great addition to the pop up scene in Edinburgh and the Borders, and definitely well worth the journey- a beautiful setting, amazing cake and friendly hosts.
