Traditional Old English Tea Parties: Tea Parties and Goodies come to Indy
Have an entire Old English tea party at your home or business this winter via Tina Jesson of Tina’s Traditional Old English Kitchen, who is celebrating the history and essence of this delightful tradition in two convenient ways. She bakes English Scones and cakes and makes preserves such as Strawberry Conserve and Old English Marmalade and sells them at Traders Point Creamery Green Market, in Zionsville, from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday mornings and can also put on English Tea Parties in homes and offices throughout our area.
Jesson first came up with the idea of combining traditional Old English recipes with local organic ingredients after coming to Indianapolis from the United Kingdom in 2008 and not finding some of her favourite foods. She also produces a range of chutneys, like green tomato chutney (Grandma’s special recipe) which is cooked liked a jam but has chillies and vinegar and tastes particularly well with strong hard cheese or ham on the bone.
