Devon Cream Tea

Posted on Posted in Symposium Session

So many Steampunks love a spot of afternoon tea, and each year the Symposium seeks to find a match for this passion. Some call it High Tea, but at the Symposium we prefer to call it a Devon Cream Tea as there is something extra special about the Devonshire style . . . Clotted Cream!

Don’t be deterred by the name; anyone who has been fortunate enough to have experienced this delightful treat will tell you that it is like nothing else . . . Is it creamy butter? Is it buttery cream? . . . It is unique!

Clotted Cream is a long process to make, but Chef Aaron at the Holiday Inn Eastgate has mastered the art and will supply us with the real thing this March. It does, however, mean that we can only take advance orders to make sure that the restaurant can make the right amount, which is why this year the Devon Cream Tea is part of all levels of the Premium Badge (details below).

The Devon Cream Tea is scheduled for 2PM on Saturday (March 30th, 2019) in the hotel restaurant.
