The return of Platelickers Supper Club…

I’m so excited to announce that Platelickers Supper Club is going to be making a come back on 17th and 18th of August!

For those of you who are unfamiliar with it, let me explain…back in 2012, me and my great friend, Ivana, started a supper club in Cambridge called Platelickers. Supper clubs are basically a very sociable, and slightly clandestine, way of dining…tickets go on sale but the location and menu are usually kept secret until the very end, in the case of the menu, until you arrive! We seat you on long shared tables, encourage you to BYO and join in conversation with other diners if the mood takes you 🙂 We then serve you a delicious menu of a welcome drink and snack followed by 3 courses.

We absolutely loved hosting Platelickers but due to our busy lives and living in different cities we had a bit of a hiatus, a lot has changed since 2012 and we’ve both come a long way in our careers, which makes our return even more exciting!

So, now for a bit more detail…

On Friday 17th and Saturday 18th August Platelickers Supper Club will be popping up in the beautiful hilltop terrasse at Paus, just a few miles out of Cambridge…

Paus have created a beautiful space in a meadow close to Bourn, where their wood-fired hot tubs are situated along with a stunning, scandi-style hilltop terrasse, where you’ll be dining! (I’m afraid the hot tubs won’t be available for use on the night, but you’ll be too busy eating 🙂 )

Tickets are £35 per person and are on sale now…see buttons below. Spaces are limited so we recommend booking early to avoid missing out.

Ivana & I are busy finalising the menu, which we’ll divulge on the night…it will consist of welcome drink and snack followed by 3 courses. Drinks wise, we’re doing BYO so feel free to bring your favourite tipple to accompany the meal.

Due to the nature of this event, we need to know dietary requirements as soon as you book…we aim to cater for most requirements but if you do have any (including vegetarians) go ahead & buy your tickets but please email us at to let us know & we will confirm with you ASAP.

We hope to see you there!

Afternoon Tease does Father’s Day afternoon tea at Restaurant 22…

After an absolutely epic brunch collaboration with Pint Shop last weekend as part of Eat Cambridge, I’m pumped and ready to announce my next event…on Sunday 17th June I’m going to be popping up at the newly re-opened Restaurant 22  to bring you a Father’s Day afternoon tea (not exclusive to Father’s)!
I’m keeping the exact menu close to my chest but don’t expect dainty crustless finger sandwiches or petit fours but do expect deliciousness such as epic Afternoon Tease cheese scones…
Doorstep sandwiches w/ homemade chutney…
homemade sausage rolls…
and a generous slices of cake (of course)…
This hearty afternoon tea including tea or coffee is just £22.
There are 2 sittings 12.30pm and 3.30pm.
There is also an option to add a beer flight, devised by the knowledgeable folk at Thirsty for just £10 extra.
They’re busy sourcing the latest, most exciting beers for you! The flight will consist of 4 exciting glasses of beer ranging from light & fruity to dark & interesting…whatever they come up with is bound to be delicious!
To book your place please follow this link & fill out the form.

I will then get back to you to confirm and arrange payment.

Bring on the 17th June 🙂

Sweeteasy…a cake & gin collaboration is coming to town on 20th & 21st April! EXTRA DATE ADDED!

Way back in 2013 (pre-Afternoon Tease cafe) I ran a series of events called Sweeteasy…where I hosted a high class drinking den with a twist, the twist being a carefully devised set menu of prohibition era and cake inspired cocktails and cocktail inspired cakes.

This time, I’ve partnered up with the wonderful Cambridge Distillery who know an awful lot about gin, producing their own range of exclusive gins. I’ve handed the booze baton over to these guys, who will craft 3 delicious gin cocktails for you.

Alongside these, I will serve 3 very special cakes, which I have devised using the tasting notes of 3 of The Cambridge Distillery’s interesting and unusual gins. Think Japanese gin martini coupled with a sesame & orange brownie topped w/ caramel, black sesame seeds and dark chocolate & citrus ganache.

We will be transforming the Cambridge Distillery’s beautiful showroom in Grantchester into our very own ‘Sweeteasy’.

So, here’s everything you need to know to join us for a very special evening of cake & gin co-hosted by Afternoon Tease & The Cambridge Distillery…

Fri 20th April, 7pm *NEW DATE ADDED!!!* Tickets go on sale 7pm Wednesday 21st March
Sat 21st April, 7.30pm (SOLD OUT)
Where…The Cambridge Distillery Showroom, 22 High Street, Grantchester, CB3 9NF(map here)
How much…£30 to include 3 cakes inspired by the tasting notes of The Cambridge Distillery’s special gins alongside 3 gin cocktails.
Click here for tickets.
(Please note that due to the restricted menu & nature of this event, I’m afraid not all dietary requirements will be able to be catered for. I will be able to make a selection of the cakes gluten free but please let us know when you book.)
Hope to see you there!

Get your hands on an Afternoon Tease cake this Friday! #treatyourself

Surely the best way to get through an extremely cold & snowy start to the week is to line yourself (and your friends/colleagues/family if you’re feeling generous) up with a cakey treat!

I’ve been hearing mutterings of AT cake withdrawal and have decided to get back in the kitchen & do some baking for you!

So, here are the details of how you can get your hands on a whole cake this Friday (2nd March)….

There will be a limited number of the following cakes available…

Chocolate Guinness cake w/ cream cheese icing

Carrot cake w/ cream cheese icing

Raspberry & vanilla sponge w/ vanilla buttercream

Please note that I am only selling whole cakes, not slices. They are £35 each for an 8 inch cake, which serves 12 generously and it will need to be collected from the Mill Road area (exact location will be divulged when your order is confirmed) on Friday 2nd March between 12 & 1pm.

If you would like to get your hands on a Friday treat please email me on and let me know which cake(s) you would like to order and provide me with a mobile number. I will get back to you to confirm and arrange payment.

If you are unlucky this time, I am happy to add you to a list for first refusal next time 🙂

Also, if you would like to discuss the possibility of placing an order for your office/work place, drop me an email to

We’re popping up for brunch on Saturday 17th February…

3 months on from the sale of Afternoon Tease, life is very different indeed. The main factor being that I actually have a life once again 🙂 Don’t get me wrong, I loved my little cafe and definitely miss (most aspects of) cafe life, however, being on the other side of it has made me realise just how hard I was working and the toll it was taking on me to keep up with the relentless needs of a small business.

But, that’s enough of that! What I have most definitely missed is cooking, baking and feeding people! So, for 1 day only, Saturday 17th February…Afternoon Tease is coming back for a brunch pop-up!

The wonderful people at The Waggon & Horses in Milton have handed over their little pub to me for the day and I’m really chuffed to be joined by some of my awesome AT team…

Unlike the cafe, this will be a bookable event and there will be 4 slots to choose from, 11am, 11.30am, 2pm or 2.30pm.

We will be offering a 3 course brunch menu featuring AT old faithfuls but also a couple of specials inspired by my recent (well Instagram documented) trip to New York.

Afternoon Tease Pop-up Brunch menu


Dovecote Bakery crumpets (2) w/ our homemade jam


Banana bread, 2 slices served warm w/ butter & cinnamon


Eggs on Dovecote Bakery sourdough toast (poached, fried or scrambled) w/ avocado & bacon

(V) Eggs on Dovecote Bakery sourdough toast (poached, fried or scrambled) w/ avocado & halloumi


Dovecote Bakery challah French toast w/ crispy streaky bacon, banana & maple syrup

(V) Dovecote Bakery challah French toast w/ fried egg, banana & maple syrup


Cheddar & dill biscuit (cheese scone 🙂 ) w/ creamed spinach, poached eggs (2) & Mill Road Butcher’s Cumberland sausages (2)

(V) Cheddar & dill biscuit (cheese scone 🙂 ) w/ creamed spinach, poached eggs (2) & veggie sausages (2)


A slice of cake – there will be a selection to choose from

(There will be boxes available so that you can take this away if you’re full to bursting)


Tea or coffee


Also, the best part of popping up in a pub is that the bar will be open for you to purchase your tipple of choice…prosecco or bloody Mary anyone!?

Now for the important part…how to book your place!

Please send an email to telling me how many people you would like to book for, their names and which slot you’d like (11am, 11.30am, 2pm or 2.30pm). I will then send you instruction on how to pay and how to select you menu choices. Your booking will not be confirmed until all of these have been received.

Due to the nature of the event and menu, I’m afraid not all dietary requirements will be able to be catered for. We will be able to accommodate vegetarian guests and will be able to make a selection of the dishes gluten free but please let us know when you book.

I’m really looking forward to seeing you all again and serving brunch to the masses 🙂

Introducing Stem + Glory…the soon to be new resident of #13 King Street…

The wait is over, I’m really happy to introduce you to the guys who will be moving into #13 King Street in just a few weeks…Stem + Glory.

These guys opened their first plant-based eaterie 1 year ago over on Chesterton Road and have done an amazing job of putting their name on the map with their brunch & fast service eat-in & take away healthy lunches as well as their evening & fine dining menus.

They have gone from strength to strength and are really looking forward to moving into a city centre location. Ok, so you won’t be able to get your Afternoon Tease style bacon & egg brunch anymore but they’ve got an awesome brunch and lunch menu up their sleeves and are definitely going to continue selling crumpets, delicious cakes and their own version of banana bread, which I can personally vouch for (it’s lush!) and have no fear, you will still be able to get your hands on that delicious coffee from Caravan Coffee Roasters!

You’ll also see some familiar faces when you visit the all new Stem + Glory 2 as many of the amazing AT team are staying on with the new venture.

We’ll keep you posted on the exact date that AT will be closing (still a couple of weeks away)and you can follow S+G on Instagram, Twitter & Facebook to find out more from them about what they’ve got planned!

I hope you’ll all support this exciting local independent business when they take up residence…I’m leaving #13 King Street in good hands!
