Take Time Out With Summer Afternoon Tea At Airfield
Take time out at Airfield Estate, Dundrum on July 23, when Head Baker Shane Smith and the Estate Bakery team will be serving up a sumptuous grown-up Sunday Afternoon Tea. The perfect backdrop to a relaxed Sunday special, the triple tiered treat will be served in the majestic setting of Trevor Overend’s Library in the Estate House. Airfield’s commitment to local, seasonal, homegrown food shines through in the delicious menu on offer.
Tuck into fresh baked scones, hot from the oven, with lashings of Cuinneog Irish Farmhouse Butter. These sweet and savoury crumbly treats are made with seasonal Airfield Estate fruit and tasty Irish cheddar infused with fresh-picked sage. Top with dollops of Airfield Jersey Cream, straight from the Estate herd, a piquant Airfield Rhubarb preserve and wild honey.
Next mouthful, a medley of fresh mini sandwiches - savour creamy Smoked Mackerel Pate on home-baked Brown Bread, Cheese on Sourdough with a delicious Tarragon Mustard and a beautiful Wooded Pig Salami on Rye, all locally sourced, fresh and wholesome.
Delicate pastries reflect the summer flora that is blooming in the Walled Garden, a true taste of the Estate – a fragrant Rosewater Éclair with White Chocolate and Pistachio, moist Airfield Carrot Cake with a generous Cream Cheese Frosting, zingy Lemon Verbena and Lavender Drizzle Cake and an indulgent Raspberry and Chocolate Fudge.
No Afternoon Tea is complete without a cuppa! Enjoy a pot of freshly brewed common-or-garden variety tea just like your Mam would make, a French Press of McCabe’s coffee, ethically sourced from independent farmers across the world and hand roasted in Co. Wicklow or choose from a selection of gorgeous organic herbal teas, from Galway based leaf-gurus Solaris. For added fizz, enjoy a refreshing glass of Prosecco.
