Cricket Themed Afternoon Tea

Hello food…..

Cricket Themed Afternoon Tea – Jess’s Messes Style

I was trying to decide what to do for my Mum for Mother’s Day earlier this year. I know she loves Afternoon Tea, but I didn’t want to do just a standard, normal Afternoon Tea. Yes, Jess’s Messes is all about the flavour, however this time the presentation had to be special.

Another love of my Mum’s is cricket, so the idea developed from there. Here is my Cricket Themed Afternoon Tea:

The table display – with essential Pimms
Brownie Scoreboard, Shortbread ECB Logo

Bacon Bat, Tomato, Mozzarella & Basil Ball and Pesto and Roasted Veg Pitches
Red Pesto and Grissini Wickets
Shortbread and Chocolate Soil Paul Collingwood
Broken Paul Collingwood 😦
The whole meal

Jess’s Messes – The Return of the Chef

Hello food…..

Well, it’s been a whole year since my last post here. It’s been a crazily busy year, but now I return, equipped with new laptop, hundreds of new recipes, a bazillion new food photos and experiences and most importantly, time to be able to restart the blog.

I’ve gone for a slightly new look, just for a fresh new start. Anyway, that’s enough of the story. Here’s a few pictures of food things that have been happening in the last year for me!
