This is absolutely the BEST tea room in VA. I attended a special 70th birthday party yesterday for my good friend (Sibbie)and was so impressed. The food was absolutely delicious and unlike some teas, you go away absolutely full of great food. Every item was organically created and the owners were so friendly and full of information about the preparation of the food. I really liked all of it, but you must have the chicken salad with almonds and cranberries in a WonTon cup -- too die for! I begged for the recipe! This is a tea shop which should be rated NO. 1 in the South, not just VA. Please do not miss this one. Ginger was the sweetest hostess. I hope she gets more cookbooks in soon, for I would like to have one of those.
Thank you for the kind words. I love people and serving them. I am out of the cookbooks, but here is the chicken salad recipe: 6 lg boneless & skinless chicken breast baked to 165 degrees for 10 plus seconds. (Don't overbaked - dry),chopped; 2 c craisins, chopped; 2 c almonds, chopped; 8 stalks celery, chopped; and about 2 c DUKE's Mayonnaise; salt and peper to taste. I prepare using a food processor and Mix in a container that can be made airtight for storage. Slowly add the Dukes to the dry ingredients using just enough to hold together. Cover and chill overnight before serving. Use only Dukes or the flavor will not be the same. I hope this works for you. Blessings and Joy.<BR> Please come back when you can we so enjoyed all the beautiful ladies that came. g<BR>
