An Afternoon to Remember in Newcastle, California.
A delightful tearoom in a fruit growing community, not far from Sacramento. The tearoom was just across the street from the old packing house, which now houses an antique shop and restaurant. Amy Lawrence is the owner of the shop. I had the opportunity to chat with her at the tea expo where she was promoting her tea cookbooks. She puts out a cookbook each year of the recipes served in the tearoom that year. This year she was also promoting a new cookbook for teashops.
An inside view of the tearoom. Our full afternoon tea started with a Black Forest Ham Quiche and Sweet Pea Cashew Salad. The salad was really yummy!
The tea sandwiches were a Sesame Chicken Salad, Sundried Tomato with Cucumbers, and Pineapple Pecan Sandwiches.
By the time we got to the desserts we were full. There was a Mandarin Cobbler, Chocolate Oatmeal Delight Bar, and Cherry Shortbread Cookie.
