Deviled Egg Chicks

Chado Tea Afternoon Tea Deviled Egg Chicks


  • 12 large eggs, hard boiled and peeled

  • ⅓ cup mayonnaise

  • 1 ½ teaspoon dijon mustard, or add to taste

  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

  • ⅛ teaspoon salt, or to taste

  • 1 small carrot, peeled and sliced into rings

  • 6 black olives


  1. Peel 12 hard-boiled eggs. With a sharp knife, slice off a very thin layer from the base of the egg - this will give it a flat surface to stand on a platter. Cut off a generous top third of the egg. Squeeze around the egg base gently to loosen the yolk and it should pop right out. Keep the lids paired with their bases.

  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine 12 cooked yolks and mash well with a fork. Add ⅓ cup mayonnaise, 1 ½ teaspoon dijon (or add to taste), ¼ teaspoon garlic powder and ⅛ teaspoon salt, or season to taste. Mash everything together until smooth. Transfer mixture to ziploc or pastry bag and pipe generously into egg bases. Place top ⅓ back over the base and press down slightly to adhere.

  3. For the eyes, poke through an olive with a plastic straw several times then gently squeeze down the straw and the little circles of olives will pop right out. For the beaks, thinly slice a few rings of carrot and cut each ring into sixths. Insert 2 olive spots for eyes and 2 carrot wedges for the beak. Set chicks on a platter and garnish with fresh parsley or dill to give them that “free range” feel.

  • 4 slices pumpernickel bread

  • ½ bunch watercress, stems removed

  • 8 ounces thinly sliced smoked salmon

  • 6 fresh chives, cut into twenty four 1-inch pieces, for garnish


  1. In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, chopped chives, horseradish, pepper, salt, capers and lemon zest until smooth.

  2. Arrange 4 slices of bread on a work surface. Spread 2 tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture over each bread slice to cover.

  3. Lay the watercress in an even layer on top. Top with smoked salmon.

  4. Using a 2 inch round cookie cutter, cut 3 or 4 circles out of each slice of bread.

Lemon Lavender Scones

Chado Tea Afternoon Tea Lemon Lavender Scones In Basket

Scone Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup granulated sugar

  • 2 tablespoons lemon zest

  • ¾ cup milk and more for brushing

  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 2 ½ teaspoon lavender flowers

  • 1 stick, ½ cup cold butter cubed

Icing Ingredients:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar

  • 1 - 1 ½ tablespoons milk, sub with lemon juice for extra lemon flavor but do not combine

  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a small bowl, combine the sugar and lemon zest, rubbing between your clean fingers until a coarse sand-like mixture forms (this helps infuse the lemon flavor).

  3. In a separate bowl, combine the milk, lemon juice, and vanilla extract. This will form a “buttermilk” like consistency. Set aside.

  4. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and lavender. Add the lemon-sugar mixture and stir to combine. Cut in the cold butter until a pea-sized mixture forms. Gently stir in milk with a wooden spoon until just combined (do not over mix).

  5. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and knead gently until formed together (again – do not over knead, gently push the dough together). Form the dough into an 8 x 5 inch rectangle. Cut the rectangle down the middle, lengthwise, and then cut the other side (short side) into thirds (you will have 6 squares). Cut each square in half to form two triangles. This will result in 12 small triangles.

  6. Place the scones on the baking sheet with plenty of space in between each one, they will expand as they bake. Brush the tops and sides of the scones evenly with a bit of additional milk to add color as they bake. Bake the scones for 19-22 minutes until bottoms and tops are slightly golden brown. Remove and let cool slightly before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely.

  7. To make the icing, stir together powdered sugar, milk (or lemon juice if substituting it), and lemon zest until combined. Drizzle on cooled scones.
