In the spring of 2021 the park picnic was the social event of the season. And by that we mean it was the only thing you were allowed to do in cities like Melbourne and Sydney with harsh lockdown restrictions in place. Before we got our sweet taste of freedom a couple of weeks ago we made the most of the beautiful Australian weather and got together with another friend of ours to have a cute picnic in the park. Sheraton Grand very kindly supplied us with their Spring High Tea At Home set to enjoy in the sun, which we had loads of fun nibbling on while lounging on the grass.
Each High Tea At Home set comes with everything you’d expect from a lavish high tea and more. From a selection of delicious savoury bites to fluffy scones and colourful sweet treats, there’s plenty of tasty things included to keep you nibbling for hours. You can even add on a bottle of Moët & Chandon if you wanted to enjoy a toast in the sunshine.
Some of the highlights for us were the macaroni and cheese croquette with truffle tomato relish and the wasabi bun with trout rillettes and roe. The chocolate orange scones were a wonderfully sweet surprise as we were expecting them to be raisins and loved the hint of sweet citrusy flavour we were met with instead. From the sweet spread, the raspberry dark chocolate mousse was a resounding favourite, followed closely by the pavlova with blueberry cream and seasonal fruit.
As well as the high tea set, Sheraton Grand also have an Indulgence Box which comes with a variety of sandwiches, meats, charcuterie, sides and sweets, and even the option to add on a beautiful wicker picnic basket to keep. For those who are after just a light afternoon snack, The Cheese and Charcuterie Box has you sorted, with a lovely selection of meats, cheeses and accoutrements.
With lockdown ending, you can also pop into Sheraton Grand and enjoy their high tea experience. If you’d prefer to keep enjoying the sunshine and making use of all the picnicware you bought, you can order the Spring High Tea At Home set or any of the others through the Sheraton Grand website.
