It was a busy weekend as Toronto celebrated Mother’s Day, Downton style. On Saturday I spoke to a room full of enthusiastic Downton fans at William Ashley, my favorite china store in the heart of the city. On Sunday I shared Afternoon tea with Downton fans at the historic Ireland House in Burlington. Mothers flocked to both events, happy to have time to relax. All likely can identify with Anna whose first words on the series were “Just once in my life, I’d like to sleep until I woke up natural.”
As you may know, Tea Tuesday is a weekly tradition I started, dishing about Downton Abbey, featuring a new “Downton” era recipe. Refer to my Online Guide to Afternoon Tea, helpful in understanding traditions and recipes to help you host your own tea party with family and friends.
This week’s treat are bonbons, one of the lovely desserts served at the historic Ireland House in Burlington, ON.
