As some of you know, I am unable to indulge in one of my favourite past-times - afternoon tea - for the forseeable future, if not longer.
BUT!!! I was looking through an online catalogue of Christmas gifts and came across this "afternoon tea de-light" at the Metropolitan Hotel
"The delicious selection of sweet and savoury cupcakes, fruit scones, and ‘no-bread sandwiches’ are made using healthful alternatives including flour substitutes, and low fat crème fraîche.
Fresh fruit purées replace unrefined sugars. Olive oil is instead of butter, as well as natural, organic and locally sourced produce wherever possible. "
Yesssssss!!!! Thank You Metro-pol-i-tan! If anyone out there is also interested in trying this out with me (not for a couple of months though) let me know! Whether you're on a diet, or like me for medical reasons, this could hit the spot where other afternoon teas can't!
