If you told me a couple of years ago that I’d be invited along to try out some afternoon tea, my eyes would be popping out of my skull. It’s one of my favourite things to do (and gobble down) so when I found myself sitting in the Laura Ashley Tearoom in Coventry waiting for our vegan afternoon tea I was almost trembling with excitement. The room was empty so I kept getting off my seat to walk around and take photos, with my husband’s eyes following me in amusement. Soon the waiter came in and laid out a delicate bowl of tomato soup in front of us (aka tomato amuse bouche), and I couldn’t contain my surprise. Soup? Where was the tiered platter of cakes? We waited for a while but soon realised that the tiered platter was not going to turn up anytime soon, and tucked into the soup.
