Mount Juliet Estate has announced the introduction of its newest dine at-home offering, The Mount Juliet Afternoon Tea at home Experience.
In the style of Lady Helen McCalmont of Mount Juliet Estate, it’s possible to recreate the traditional ritual of afternoon tea at home.
After the success of the Lady Helen Dine at home takeaway box, which sold out immediately, the culinary team at Mount Juliet Estate, headed by Michelin star and four AA Rosette awarded Executive Chef John Kelly, decided to offer people the Mount Juliet Afternoon Tea experience at home.
According to Chef John Kelly: “It’s simple and fun to assemble, with no cooking required. The menu has been made using the freshest ingredients and when it’s put together, it’s an impressive presentation of our afternoon tea. It’s perfect to gather around for an entertaining afternoon together.”
There are three Mount Juliet Afternoon Tea at home experiences to choose from. The traditional Mount Juliet Afternoon Tea for two people is priced at €80. Mount Juliet’s Family Afternoon Tea for two adults and two children to enjoy is priced at €120. For a luxury indulgence there is the Mount Juliet Afternoon Tea for Two with Henriot Champagne which is priced at €125. There is a delivery charge of €10 for delivery in Kilkenny only.
The kits include freshly baked Guinness and treacle brown bread and white soda bread loaves, served with a selection of toppings including Coronation chicken, Duncannon smoked salmon and beef pastrami with all the trimmings. Sweet treats include lemon drizzle cake, coffee opera cake, frangipane tart and freshly baked scones with homemade raspberry jam and lemon curd.
The children can indulge in sweet treats with rocky road pops, Kinder cupcakes, giant cookies, and blondies, along with cheese dips and Nutella bagels, all paired with a bottle of homemade lemonade.
Each Mount Juliet Afternoon Tea box comes with a menu and a note on how to present, serve and enjoy the afternoon tea in the style of Lady Helen McCalmont.
