NEW YORK NEW YORK : Tea in the East Village - Susan Simon

Tea in the East Village – Susan Simon. Sunday afternoon tea at James Beard Award winning cookbook author Susan Simon apartment was quite a treat.  A pity the weather was little too cold to enjoy her beautiful green and luscious terrace.  The Clematis on the right was in full bloom and with all the rain the other plants are flourishing too.  The two shocking pink garden chairs by Fermob come from John Derian’s store and the pretty pink and white cushion at the back was made by John Robshaw.

The menu.   Just as romantic as a Sunday afternoon tea evokes so do these Stewed Rhubarb and Strawberries with Ronnybrook Coconut Yogurt and Homemade Granola taste.  Other delicious treats were Radish, Butter with Maldon Salt and Chives Sandwiches, Smoked Salmon on Cucumber with a dab of cream cheese bites, Roasted Sweet and Salty Almonds, Kunik Cheese from Upstate New York made with goats milk and milk from Jersey cows and a cold hibiscus tea Vc were the perfect  mix for a very substantial and delicious tea party. All recipes and more can found on Susan’s blog.
