Silwood’s High Tea

Silwood School of Cookery is coming up for its 50th anniversary next year.  Opening as Silwood Kitchen in 1964 by the legendary Lesley Faull, the school has blossomed and become a truly professional cookery school under the guiding hand of Principal Alicia Wilkinson, Lesley’s daughter, and granddaughter Carianne Wilkinson.

If ever you are wanting to put on a High Tea, you could do worse than employ a kitchen full of Silwood’s First Year Students to put one together for you.

 I attended a tea yesterday given by some first year students for their year end exams.

Pecan & Salted Caramel Cheesecake

I was bowled over by the professional pastries sweet and savoury which were served up with a choice of lemonade, Ceylon or Rooibos tea or coffee.

A real treat.
