Afternoon Tea & Sympathy

A Great British Tradition

Calming tea, freshly baked scones, cool cream and tart berry jam: Cream Teas remain a firm favourite in our Dorking and Reigate cafes. This scrumptious combination belongs to the great British tradition of Afternoon Tea.

In celebration of Afternoon Tea Week, we are reminding ourselves of the roots of our nation’s not-so-guilty pleasure. Why, it can be insufferable to save ourselves until supper – on some days, this simply won’t do!

It was Queen Victoria’s beloved friend, Anna Maria Russell, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, who invented this indulgent afternoon meal in 1840. She would often find herself peckish come four o’clock, and preferred not to wait until eight o’clock to satisfy herself at dinner.

Some years before, the Earl of Sandwich dreamt up the genius idea of fillings for the staple snack of bread and butter. Sandwich’s creations would go on to form a key component in Anna’s Afternoon Tea. On her tray, sandwiches joined scones, cake and, of course, bone china cups awaiting brew from the silver pot.

Anna began to invite friends for “a walk in the fields and tea,” with her chosen ladies donning their finest long gowns, gloves and hats for this dainty event. The 1880s cemented Afternoon Tea as an upper class event, with sandwiches, scones and cakes becoming ever finer and delicately formed.

Let Your Guests Eat Cake!

Today, Afternoon Tea is a real treat, and serves to create a special sense of occasion. As caterers equipped to cook and bake for events from baby showers and anniversaries to funerals, we like to draw upon the tradition. Bite-size sandwiches, mouth-watering mini scones and canape cakes can feature in your bespoke menu, if this is how you wish to indulge your guests.

Afternoon E-tea-quette

As with the best British traditions, there can be debate about the elements of Afternoon Tea. It is certainly a subject which excites passion in those who love to scoff scones! Yes, these trifles really are storms in teacups…!

Yet, with our tongues firmly planted in our cheeks, please allow us to address your tea-related queries…

Do we take Cream Tea, Afternoon Tea, High Tea or Royal Tea?

Cream Tea is the classic combination of tea, scones, cream and jam, as can be enjoyed on a leisurely afternoon at Two Many Cooks in Dorking or Reigate – or at an earlier hour, if desired!

Afternoon Tea is Duchess Anna’s marriage of Cream Tea with sandwiches and cakes, for added sustenance!

High Tea is the traditional term for a hearty meal based on savoury foods, historically eaten by the lower classes. Overseas, British Afternoon Tea is often called ‘High Tea,’ hence hotels like the Ritz naming their afternoon offering the same.

Royal Tea is the highly recommended pairing of Afternoon Tea with a glass of champagne – pure class!

If I really intend to make like a Victorian lady, what is the polite way to stir tea?

Traditional etiquette dictates that you begin with your spoon in your cup at six o’clock. Next, stir your tea clockwise, up to twelve o’clock. Take care not to scrape the spoon against the sides of the cup , which creates an uncouth clang! Lastly, return your spoon to your saucer. This is to avoid the fatal mistake of leaving it in your cup. Quelle horreur!

Am I right to stick my pinkie finger up as I sip my tea?

Please refrain from this outdated fashion: a total faux pas! Once thought to aid the balancing of the teacup as it sailed towards the drinker’s lips, this pose is a now no-no!

Modern teaware is available to purchase at our Dorking & Reigate shops

Which should I pour first, the milk or the tea?

In Queen Victoria’s day, milk was poured in first. This was to line the delicate bone china cups with cooling liquid, to protect against cracks or damages from the boiling tea.

Chemistry geeks may insist that milk-before-tea allows for the best combination, owing to their molecular structures.

Conversely, you may like to pour tea for each of your guests first. This allows them to add their own milk, according to their individual tastes.

Which should I spread onto my scone first, cream or jam?

Both Cornwall and Devon claim to have invented the dreamy dish of Cream Tea. The question of cream versus jam continues to divide the regions as a matter of cultural pride.

Ahead of Mother’s Day this year, a National Trust property in Cornwall angered local residents by posting a photo of scones slathered in cream before jam. This is the proper order in Devon. By contrast, Cornish Cream Teas spread the jam onto the scone before the cream. The sticky situation caused one local to accuse the National Trust of ‘cultural vandalism.’

We recommend you eat more scones in the name of scientific experimentation. Then you can decide where your allegiance lies!

CONSCIOUS COFFEE

Hand-Picked

In our Dorking and Reigate shops, our coffee grinders are fed with the finest beans. Our ethical supplier is Coffee Real. Travelling to remote regions of The Americas, Africa and Asia, Coffee Real invest huge resources in sourcing quality beans. Coffee Real fondly recount the stories of each of the families who grow coffee for them, and work to ensure that their exchanges are beneficial for both sides.

Above & below: Fina El Rincon in Guatemala, whose coffee blend for Coffee Real has notes of orange & chocolate

Unfortunately, equal trading relationships are not always the case. With big brands and chain businesses, supply chains can be mysterious, complex and entangled in politics. As consumers, it can be impossible to trace the origin of what we eat and drink. When we tuck into a quick coffee, we may not pause to contemplate the long line of people and processes which has powered our caffeine fix.

At Two Many Cooks, we are in the fortunate position to only work with suppliers who share our ethical business values. We love to serve you the most delicious coffee, whilst taking part in an operation which supports all of the people involved at each part of the production process.

To meet the people behind Coffee Real, take a look at their video:

Global Gathering

The fourth annual International Coffee Day will be taking place on 1st October. Stay tuned for news of how we will be celebrating in Dorking and Reigate – needless to say, there will be coffees galore!

This global event is aimed at raising awareness of the epic journey made by the humble coffee bean, all the way from a faraway farm to your local cafe. Crucially, organisers encourage us to acknowledge the individuals in the vast world of coffee. They invite us to honour the real men and women who actually grow and harvest coffee to fill our cups.

International Coffee Day is sponsored by the International Coffee Organisation (ICO). By facilitating international cooperation, ICO tackle the challenges faced by the coffee industry. They link exporting and importing governments to work for fairness for all.

Women at Work

Above: a member of the Mutira Farmers’ Cooperative Society in Kirmutuira, Kenya, who harvest for Coffee Real

The theme for this year’s International Coffee Day will be ‘Women in Coffee.’ The event is joining the International Women’s Coffee Alliance, who work to empower women across the industry.

Their mission is for all women in the coffee community to lead meaningful and sustainable lives. This vital work is made possible with the help of skilled and passionate volunteers. There are tons of ways for you to add your support if you feel called to this cause.

Our female managers in our Surrey coffee shops certainly agree with the awesome slogan invented by the International Women’s Coffee Alliance…

“Strong women = strong coffee” – well said!

Too Many Cups

Reuse, Recycle

‘Reuse, recycle’ is a mantra at Two Many Cooks. As we celebrate the launch of our bamboo Eco-cup, we learn about the superpowers of this miracle plant…

We are passionate about the measures, large and small, we can take to nurture the environment, even as we magic marvellous food. To feed our family of staff in cooler months, by one o’clock at TMC HQ, a gigantic pot of ‘Fridge Soup’ is bubbling away! Our staff ladle bowlfuls of the affectionately named stuff, a steaming surprise concocted out of leftovers. We loathe waste and love to re-purpose. This is true to the original ‘waste not, want not,’ spirit of our family kitchen. Here flowers rest in old jam jars; where our event catering business was born.

We decided to address the issue of take-away cups for coffee and tea at our Reigate and Dorking shops. In the UK alone, we discard 2.5 billion single-use cups every year. The global count is a shocking 100 billion. Of these 2.5 billion, less than 1% are recycled. The rest go on to choke up our precious earth via landfill. Further, it is sad to ponder trees falling to produce the virgin paper pulp for disposable cups: vessels we are done with in minutes. Eco-cups are now enabling us to begin to reverse this cycle…

Luxe Eco-Living

Following thirsty and rigorous testing during May, from car journeys to desks to dishwashers, we found our favourite eco-cup partner in Ecoffee. On 1st June we proudly introduced our branded keep-cup in Reigate and Dorking. When you choose to invest in your eco-cup, we reward you with a free hot drink. Your Two Many Cooks reusable cup is made from sterile, lightweight, BPA-free bamboo. It also features secure rubber lids, drinking-hole stoppers and handy heat sleeves. Your eco-cup looks smart in our signature navy blue, and is swiftly becoming a Surrey Hills accessory! Bring your cup with you to order your favourite drink and we will knock-off 20p. 20p is the cost of a single-use cup to Two Many Cooks. We’re happy to return this to your pocket!

Beautiful Bamboo

Super-plant bamboo has long been a staple in our kitchen. It lends subtle sweetness and exotic crunch to our comforting Thai Green Curry. Pandas get their sole nutrition from this fibrous, protein-packed, vitamin-rich plant. We like to cook with it because it boosts the immune system due to anti-inflammatory properties. Bamboo is crucial to many global cultures and economies, with uses from homeopathic medicine to construction material. Amazingly, bamboo is structurally stronger than steel, yet weighs far less.

We chose bamboo for our eco-cups because it is naturally organic. Bamboo requires only discarded leaves to regenerate, without the need for fertilisers. In addition, bamboo is highly sustainable, being the fastest growing plant on the planet. In optimal conditions, it can grow up to 3 feet in 24 hours. Crucially, bamboo releases 30% more oxygen into the atmosphere. It also absorbs greater levels of carbon dioxide than other plants. In this way, bamboo is a quiet guardian of the environment: it cleans the air of greenhouse gases.

Next time you cradle your blue keep-cup… Reflect upon the wonder of tall, green stalks swaying, reaching higher into the sky; filtering the air even as they breathe…

Two Many Cooks Eco-Cup loves to accompany you to the park!

Your Eco-Cup

Your Two Many Cooks eco-cup will fare perfectly well in the dishwasher. In the unlikely event that you’ve a drop of caffeinated elixir left – please don’t pop it into the microwave! After years of merry sipping, you can eventually compost it or crush it into household waste, content that you have made a tiny yet significant difference.

It’s wonderful to see so many of you already enjoying our reusable receptacles. If you happen to be sporting your keep-cup in a photo-post, please use #stopthe100billion to help us to boost this important movement.

Our Dorking coffee shop had a surprise review!

Muddy Stilettos if you don’t already know is a witty but indispensable guide to the very best restaurants, walks, boutiques, day trips, hotels, interiors and events in all the local counties!

We were rather delighted to hear that they had secretly popped in to review our busy Dorking coffee shop… and have shared their findings on their fabulous website.

As well as being an indispensable local guide, it’s also a platform for local businesses to get their message across and for us to see what an amazing and creative county we live in.

As editor of the Surrey edition Amber spent her days (and some evenings) sassing around Surrey with her ear to the ground to bring you the inside line on what’s happening in our county.

If you want to get in touch with Muddy Stilettos call Amber on 07500 906712 or email amber@muddystilettos.co.uk

Why we use Coffee Real

Two Many Cooks and Coffee Real

Coffee Real have been making their coffee since 2008 and we are lucky enough to sell it in our coffee shops.

Coffee Real make the perfect all round sweet and complex cuppa working with coffee farmers all over the world. This takes time, care and continual investment into new technologies but they do it!

Coffee-Real-Two-Many-Cooks

 

“We may be a relatively young company but we learnt pretty early on that you can’t sit back in the UK and expect that special kind of quality to arrive at your door – it just doesn’t happen – if you’re serious about coffee you have to put in the time and effort – hunt out the right farmers and really understand the coffee they produce – you need to get under its skin (so to speak) – and the only way you can do that is to go to the origin and build mutually beneficial relationships with the families that grow the stuff…”

Coffee-Real-sumatra-linton-beans-being-pulped 

Some of the coffee we serve and sell in our shops taste like this!……..

Guatamala
A buoyant floral and sweetly spicy cup – rounded and balanced by vanilla and complex floral notes with a lightly syrupy mouthfeel.

Ethiopia Djimmah
Wild chocolate notes, malty caramel sweetness and spicy/peppery aftertaste

Gone for Lunch
Good body and a rich fruity base with some sweet nuttiness and almond (marzipan) – balanced out by a fruity acidity. Lovely rounded lush finish.

Bornfree
This is a wonderful espresso for a wonderful cause. A very rich buttery espresso with some sweet pleasing acidity, notes of cocoa and a juicy berry finish. Great straight or with milk.

6am
Creamy and smooth with a little bright acidity and a lovely good depth, body and crema. Takes milk well, some in the camp say very well.

Salvation decaf
Mellow roundedness with bright fruit notes and a medium-ish finish – with a crema that holds up surprisingly well for a full decaf. Great with milk.
