A Taste of Tradition: Wimbledon Fare

  • Strawberries and Cream: The undisputed champion of Wimbledon treats! Fresh, plump strawberries bathed in creamy whipped cream are a refreshing and symbolic part of the tournament.
  • Cucumber Sandwiches: Delicate finger sandwiches filled with thinly sliced cucumber and a touch of cream cheese are a timeless Wimbledon staple.
  • Afternoon Tea: Indulge in a quintessential British tradition - afternoon tea! Scones with jam and clotted cream, alongside dainty finger sandwiches and pastries, are perfect for a sophisticated Wimbledon experience.
  • Elevating Wimbledon Treats with Beverage Pairings

  • Sparkling Wine: Pop the cork on a bottle of chilled champagne or prosecco for a touch of elegance that complements the sweetness of the strawberries and cream.
  • Pimm's Cup: A refreshing summer cocktail made with Pimm's No. 1 liqueur, lemonade, cucumber, mint, and fruit slices. Perfect for a quintessential British afternoon on Centre Court.
  • Afternoon Tea: A pot of classic black tea, Earl Grey, or a fragrant floral tea complements the rich flavors of the afternoon tea spread. For a touch of luxury, consider a cup of saffron tea. Saffron adds a subtle floral aroma and beautiful golden color, elevating your tea experience. (Looking for premium saffron to enhance your next cup of tea?
