Edible Science

Edible Science

Ah January and its New Year resolutions, we decide in the bleakest month that now is the time to go on 6am runs and to live on a sober diet of green juices, but we say beat off the January blues with a little spot of afternoon tea – because everyone needs a treat after a spinach, kale and spirulina breakfast.

Running until 6th February is the Ampersand’s science afternoon tea, which after sandwiches (which include coronation chicken and cheese with fruit chutney) and scones with clotted cream will be serving up science inspired cakes. Think mango mousse volcanoes, chocolate dinosaurs, pistachio macaroons with cherry sauce pipettes and a raspberry cake planet – if only this was how science was taught at school, we’d be A* students no question. For those not doing dry January then you can also have it with a glass of Champagne, which will cheer up even the most miserable January afternoon.
