Last night Barny was at the Cafe Life Awards in London. We were nominated for the Manwich, the Scotch Egg toastie and a pet project we had been working on: Sushi Afternoon Tea. Sushi is beautiful, classically presented and full of fish. The only difference to an afternoon tea is the volume of seafood.
In the end, sushi afternoon tea had to settle for a runner up, while the Manwich took platinum in the toasted sandwich category. That toastie has a whole history unto itself though, and is a different story. I’m just as proud that we made it through to the finals in a category that is not actually our speciality. So here is Gold Award Winning Afternoon Tea Sushi, in pictures, because it makes for sexy food porn reading.
Sushi Afternoon Tea by The Jabberwocky
Not quite our usual level of refined, cheese based class, but it makes a change. Could we ever realistically offer this as a wedding option? Only with a team of 30 dedicated chefs working behind the scenes. But we ate really well that lunch time. Tiny portions, but you eat enough of them and they really fill you up.
In other news, we will attempt to end radio silence on the blog soon, but tiny Jabberwocky offspring is still pretty tiny, and not yet able to hold tongs or contribute anything beyond gurgles and smiles.
On balance, this is actually plenty.
