FES­TIVE AF­TER­NOON TEA AT LON­GLEAT

Town & Country (UK) - - TASTE -

When Emma Mc­quis­ton took up res­i­dence at Lon­gleat in 2013, fol­low­ing her mar­riage to Ceawlin, Vis­count Wey­mouth, she spot­ted a golden op­por­tu­nity to bring the stately home’s beau­ti­ful Vic­to­rian kitchen back to life. Tak­ing in­spi­ra­tion from her new abode’s vast col­lec­tion of an­tique culi­nary equip­ment, and by her own love of cook­ing, she launched the Emma’s Kitchen brand, which sells gourmet pro­duce rang­ing from hand­made meringues to honey. This Christ­mas, she has de­signed the menu for Lon­gleat’s first-ever fes­tive af­ter­noon tea, which she says will fea­ture ‘de­li­cious but­tery mince pies, warm­ing mulled wine and gin­ger cake’, as well as roasted-turkey sand­wiches and white-choco­late scones with cran­ber­ries, served in the lav­ishly dec­o­rated sur­round­ings of the Orangery.
