high tea : rochelle adonis (again)
Every single morsel was done to perfection. One of the highlights were the cauliflower puree spoons served with ‘yolks’ of capsicum essence which burst in the mouth. On the sweets platter the mango galette with sorbet was featherlight, the sweet flesh of the mango heightened by the clean tasting sorbet. The creme brulee was perfect. The sugar crust torched to an almost burnt toffee crisp which snapped to reveal thick, pleasurable custard underneath.
On the downside, the day we went was warm and with the communal table crowded to the hilt (and the air con at full bore) it was quite uncomfortable. Sipping tea while sweating, is strangely inelegant. So next time, we’ll book at a cooler and less crowded time slot. Though all is forgiven because the food here is delectable and for the moment, represents the most boutique high tea to be had in Perth.
