At our Brunch in Wonderland the savoury hit was the definitely the mushroom dish. For me it was one of dishes with the most wonderland silliness! My announcement of “It was made with Cheshire Cheese, like the Cheshire Cat haha” was followed by the quote of the day “Oh yeah, I can taste that smile”. Plus there was the joy of rarebit/rabbit, thyme/time and of course the mushrooms. All served on a teacup shaped piece of Rye toast.

And for everyone who asked about the delicious sauce with the mushrooms, here is the recipe!

Lewis Carroll’s children’s classic, Alice in Wonderland, turns 150 this year.
For a century and a half it has delighted and puzzled us in equal measure. We have fallen down the rabbit hole with Alice, taken tea with her and the Mad Hatter, been maddened by the Cheshire Cat and had to convince the Queen of Hearts that we didn’t steal her tarts!
We’re hosting a brunch in tribute; with mushrooms & door-mice, with roses & tarts, with rabbits & rarebits and good old lathering of madness. Oh and of course, tea glorious tea, because it’s always tea time in Wonderland.
