Modern Tea Party: Camille Becerra for Sunday Suppers

Lest you think my obsession with afternoon tea is over, no siree, this is a life long love. I attended a preview dinner of The Cookery last week, a pop-up summer dinner series by Camille Becerra.

While browsing through Camille’s personal blog, I found these gorgeous photos of a project she did with Lonny Magazine and Sunday Suppers. They asked her to create a food menu food with the theme of “modern tea party.” How fun!

She created a variety of picturesque savories like pea puree with mint, white radish, black sea salt, and olive oil on rye. Above is the goat cheese, cucumber, sea beans, blossoming broccoli on rustic white bread. There’s another of tomato, avocado, dill cured salmon on brioche.

And finally, one of blue cheese, with pears, honey, and violas on mix grain bread. It makes me all giddy inside, heheh. The possibilities! I whip out my notebook and pen, jotting ideas for weekend tea sandwiches. Of course, I’ll never get around to making 99% of them. But it’s the thought that counts, no?

For dessert, rhubarb pop-tarts. Looks don’t lie. I was planning to re-create them at home (remember – it’s the thought that counts!), but then at the dinner they gave these same pop-tarts as a gift for breakfast the next morning! Love the rustic crimps, the rhubarb and green apple filling with cinnamon and nutmeg. Shared it with Pierre, and indeed regret not eating the whole thing myself.
