I recently attended an Afternoon Tea Masterclass held at the gorgeous cookery school Food at 52. I had been there before to spend the day with James Martin, as you do. LOL It is a superb venue and the owners and staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. They are legends!
I could gladly set up residence in their kitchen, it is amazing! John, one of the owners and our tutor for the evening, was knowledgeable, very lovely and tolerated our nattering and spoon licking exploits. Don't ask!

It was a fabulous evening and much fun was had by all. We baked a selection of Afternoon Tea treats which were all delicious, we even managed to take some home.
We baked Mini Bakewell Tarts, Victoria Sponge, Salted Caramel Millionaires Shortbread, Black Forest Cupcakes, Scones and Fruit Tartlets.
