Taste of Art: English Teatime

Take a historical and culinary tour of English tradition, on a guided gallery tour and hands-on teatime preparation.

Join Maite Gomez-Réjon of ArtBites as she explores the history and traditions of English teatime from the 17th through 19th centuries. Following a tour of The Huntington European Art Gallery, participants will return to the classroom to prepare their very own afternoon tea complete with finger sandwiches and scones.

  • This program will be held indoors in the Ahmanson Classroom.
  • A portion of the class will include gallery and garden visits so please wear comfortable walking shoes.
  • All supplies and materials included.

If you have any mobility issues, dietary concerns, or general program questions, please contact Joy Yamahata at jharding@huntington.org or call 626-405-3457.
