You and your team do such an amazing job Anna and you guys make the best food.
I’ve always believed that Londolozi is as much about the camp experience as it is about the wildlife and that the food we serve here is a key component in that. My hope for Londolozi as the Executive Chef has always been that our guests would one day come for the food and not the leopards (something which always gets me into a hot pot of discussion with our rangers)!!!
The Week in Pictures has become a big feature on the Londolozi blog and is now sitting at 255 posts. What I’ve decided is that the kitchen is going to follow suit and start our very own The Week in Food. These posts will highlight the deliciousness that’s being cooked up in the Londolozi kitchen. Watch this space for sweet tips, your favourite recipes, kitchen personalities and more inspiration from your home away from home.
To kickstart with a bang we’re launching with some of our High Tea Secrets. This is only part one and you’ll have to wait till next week for our second installment.
So what exactly is High Tea?
Afternoon tea was introduced in England by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, in the year 1840. The Duchess would become hungry around three o’clock in the afternoon. The evening meal in her household was served fashionably late at eight o’clock, thus leaving a long period of time between lunch and dinner. So this Anna decided as the day’s in winter are shorter, we would adopt her idea too, having a high tea to tide the guests over to a post-safari dinner. It has been extremely successful and here are a few of our ideas that you can introduce to your high tea, afternoon bridge game, weekend treat or just a simple get together.
