“Tea on De Hill” with Chef Bianca Bianco

On April 5 2021 (Easter Monday), Chef Bianca Bianco entertained guests with a multi-course “Tea on De Hill” from her base in the hills of St. Joseph.

I first met Chef Bianco in 2016 through her work with local chocolatiers. From the get go I was inspired by her bubbly personality and avant-garde, yet highly relatable, approaches to combining local ingredients in new ways.

In the years since that initial meeting my respect for her and her skills has only grown and it’s with great joy that I attend as many of her tastings as possible.

Check out my recap video above, as well as the following images and gallery to experience some of “Tea on De Hill”. Here’s hoping that (lockdown regulations permitting) I get to co-stream with Chef Bianco for y’all on my Twitch channel in the near future as well! Until then, follow her on Instagram to learn when next she will be offering classes/events etc.

Difference Between Afternoon Tea and High Tea



Nope! Many people refer to “afternoon tea” as “high tea” but this is simply incorrect. Afternoon tea and high tea are completely different types of meals.



Afternoon tea is a light meal composed of three course of tea sandwiches and savories, followed by scones with clotted cream and jam, and ending with sweet pastries. Everything is bite-sized and eaten with fingers.

High tea on the other hand was a working class family evening meal or supper.

It consisted of hearty dishes and high tea time was between 5PM – 7PM after the working class came home from work.

Instead of small crustless finger sandwiches, a high tea menu consisted of meat dishes, potatoes, baked beans, and other heavy dishes. It was meant to nourish the after a long day at work.
