Divino Enoteca invited a group of Edinburgh-based food bloggers to try their Italian afternoon tea. With prosecco no less. And a fig pastry I will rave about for weeks.
It was dreich outside as we sipped wine and eat the latest afternoon tea offering in Edinburgh. Delicious and with a distinct Italian twist, this is what we were served on a classic three-tiered cake stand:
Bottom layer: gnocco fritto with smoked swordfish – soft and savoury; bruschetta – a classic; sundried tomato foccacia with whipped butter.
Middle layer: figs in almond paste – my absolute favourite thing, they were lush; cannoli with pistachio mousse – crunchy and rich.
Top layer: panettone with chocolate cream – light and rich at the same time; frozen tiramisu – creamy and with a good hit of coffee.
Everything was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. Greedy bloggers cleared the plates with gusto. Did I miss scones? Not for one second.
Divino Enoteca’s afternoon tea experience is £30 for two to share, or add glasses of prosecco and make it £40.
