Indulge without guilt at the Capella Singapore's designer kitchen, Chef's Table with Wellness Tea Time. Conceptualised by Sandra Lim of Live Fruitfully, a certified Raw Food Chef from The Matthew Kenney Culinary Institute, and Chef David Senia, the Culinary Director of Capella Singapore, the new take on the classic afternoon tea experience uses distinctive wholesome ingredients and it is available every Friday from 3:00PM to 5:00PM.
The Wellness Tea Time experience features a five-course menu which consists of a symphony of gluten-free and dairy-free savoury and sweet creations. Individuals with a vegan diet can enjoy the delicious Root Vegetables and Hummus Tart made from gluten-free flour, as well as the use of vitamin-rich sweet potato as the tart filling. Other savouries include the Tempeh Portobello Slider with Green Goddess Cream, Cauliflower Crust Pizza with Shiitake ‘Bacon’ and Sprouted Whole Grain Bread with Tomato Tapenade.
The special house scones will also take on a different twist with the use of raspberry chia-seed jam and whipped coconut cream as the topping. Known to have multiple health benefits such as improving the digestive system and building stronger bones and muscles, the superfood chia seeds are rich in fibre, omega-3 fats, vitamins and minerals. For those with a sweet tooth and would still like to keep their diet in check can delight its sweet delicacies made with unrefined sugar choices such as maple syrup and vegan chocolate chips. The colourful medley includes a Quinoa and Zucchini Chocolate Tea Cake; the Chocolate Hazelnut Dome; Cultivated ‘Cheesecake’ with Blueberry and Beetroot Glaze and Cacao Avocado Mousse. The tea time experience concludes with a refreshing Tomato Consomme Jelly with Basil Granita.
To further complete the afternoon tea indulgence, diners can take a pick from the three fine Ronnefeldt Ayurvedic teas – a cocoa-rich taste with light floral notes Stay in Balance; an invigorating herbal Light My Flame or the smooth green tea blend Let It Go. Wellness Tea Time is priced at S$59++ per person. For reservation or more information, please call +65 6591 5089 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
