Tea Fit for Royalty

Want to celebrate Meghan and Harry’s nuptials in style this weekend? If you are in Toronto, check out the Omni King Edward Hotel on May 18, 19th and 20th. This is a most fitting place to celebrate since it’s where Megan’s character got married in one of the last episodes of Suits. A nice rehearsal space for the real thing!
Here’s what’s on the menu for the special Royal Tea…coordinated by Sous Chef Elaine Wong. And it’s delicious. I know because I was lucky enough to be invited to the hotel’s preview unveiling.
Lemon and Elderflower Cordial Wedding Cake (Just like the real one!)
HRH’s Banana and Caramel Yoghurt Slice (HRH’s fave flavour combo)
Apple Pie inspired Macaron with white Peony steeped Buttercream (Peonies are M’s fave)
Citrus Posset with Blushing Spring Rhubarb
Lavender and Rose Infused Shortbread with Raspberry Preserve

Parsley, Sage, Rosemary & Thyme Roast Chicken (the dinner Harry proposed during)
