With the launch of Healing Manor's new restaurant, The Portman in site for a date yet to be confirmed, Healing Manor Hotel have teamed up with one of the largest publishing companies in the world, Penguin Books and Beatrix Potter to create an afternoon tea that gives a nod to all the tales dating back as far as 1901 when The Tale of Peter Rabbit was first published.
The afternoon tea itself is set to launch on Wednesday 21st March and will be served in The Portman, prior to its official relaunch as a tasting menu restaurant come the evening. Beatrix Potter Afternoon Tea will be an enchanting mix of delicious savory and sweet treats designed by Steven Bennett and his team of chef's. Dishes include Mr McGregor's Vegetable Garden which is a homemade pâté, edible soil and vegetable crudités which is served with toasted hedgehog bread, as a nod to Mrs Tiggy-Winkle.
Sandwiches are inspired by 'The Tale of Two Bad Mice', a spring quiche inspired by 'The Tale of The Pie and The Patty-Pan', and a delicious sundried tomato pastry pin wheel, inspired by Tom Kitten in 'The Tale of Samuel Whiskers'.
The sweets include a white chocolate egg influenced by Jemima Puddle-Duck and a butterfly sandwich from 'The Tale of Jeremy Fisher'. Other sweet treats refer to 'The Tale of Benjamin Bunny' and 'The Tale of Peter Rabbit', and include a 'Rabbit tobacco' scone, blackberry macaron and Peter Rabbit biscuit.
Healing Manor's Beatrix Potter Afternoon Tea will be served with a choice of Stokes of Lincoln tea or coffee and they're also offering a delicious menu of Peter Rabbit-inspired cocktails. Bunny Tail fizz is a concoction of champagne, Belvoir Elderflower Pressé and candy floss, Bees Knees is inspired by the landscape referenced in Beatrix Potter's novels and non-alcohol cocktails include a Flopsy, Mopsy and Cotton-Tail Milk Shake and Peter Rabbit Juice featuring fresh carrot, apple and orange.
With a passion for creating diverse menus to suit most dietary needs, Healing Manor Hotel will also be serving a Gluten Free, Vegetarian and Vegan Beatrix Potter Afternoon Tea. Beatrix Potter Afternoon is served Wednesday through to Saturday from 12pm - 3.30pm and Sunday 2pm - 4pm
