Alice in Wonderland, a character in Annabelle Troy’s whimsical novel Jane Eyre Gets Real, loves roses. To combat the #coronavirus blues she is planning on holding a celebration tea on June 8th, the day #NewYorkCity is scheduled to come out of #lockdown.
Not only will she serve everything on rose-patterned china, the menu too will be based on this classic flower. Keep in mind that roses in their natural state are edible–beware though of long-stemmed beauties from the florist’s, as they might have been treated with insecticides harmful to humans.
Alice’s Rosy Menu:
Rose Jelly on Crumpets–aka Rose Jam
Organic Rose Hip Tea
Persian Rose Water Ice Cream
Rose Petal Salad
They-Look-Just-Like Roses #Cupcakes
If you have any rose-related recipe to suggest to Alice, she’d love to know!
