Gluten Free Afternoon Tea Menu 15 January

I am very much looking forward to hosting my first gluten free afternoon tea.  I was motivated to start offering gluten free menus as I became aware of good friends of mine suffering from coeliac disease.  I was moved by their frustration and disappointment in not being able to participate in such things as an afternoon tea and how careful they had to be whilst eating out.

Awareness of the disease is growing.  I include myself in that as  I have learnt so much about this disease in researching this menu and as I continue to read about it.

I hope this event will be the first of many!

    Can I be cheeky & ask what recipe you use for your savoury pastry tart?
    I am great with breads, soda breads, cakes & brownies but a dismal failure at W/F pastry!!
    Thanks (twitter: @jill_jtc)
