I was cleaning through my photo archives this afternoon, trying to figure out how to best organize everything (by date, location?) when I found photos from dinner at In Pursuit of Tea. The six-course tea dinner was one-time event cooked by the French Culinary Institute’s chef-instructor, Melanie Franks. It took place in Feburary and I mentioned purchasing the dinner tickets in this post. Guess I never got around to posting the photos!
A bit delayed but better late than never :)
The dinner was a eye-opener that introduced us to different ways of using tea to cook. Each course featured tea as a key ingredient. And it wasn’t just your normal tea eggs or tea-infused sweets, but crazy awesome things like fried fresh tea leaves, tea tapioca, tea pastas and puff pastries, butter tea broth and so much more. I just received my copy of Culinary Tea in the mail, so between dinner photos and that cookbook, I have a feeling there’s will be lots of cooking with tea posts coming soon.
