Cook's tip: Afternoon tea platters
Get social this summer and invite the neighbours around. Relaxed afternoon teas are easy to manage.
Set out the Toasted Sesame Flatbread by Huntley & Palmers – they have just the right amount of special for such occasions – and top them with lettuce and a fresh, herby chopped chicken salad. Pop the kettle on, or maybe pop a cork, then sit back and enjoy.
Chopped salads make super toppings. It's as simple as adding a bunch of finely chopped herbs and some spring onions or shallot to poached, chopped chicken breast, mixed with some salsa verde or a lemon and olive oil dressing.
