Premium kitchen appliance brand De’Longhi – synonymous with morning teas and creating special
kitchen moments – is proud to partner with Cancer Council Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea, to
celebrate the charity’s 30th anniversary and help raise much needed funds for people affected by
cancer.

In the lead up to the official Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea event on 25th May and to encourage
Australians to get involved in one of the country’s most iconic fundraisers, De’Longhi has teamed up with celebrated pastry chef Andy Bowdy to provide inspiration on how to ‘Master your Morning Tea’.

Owner of Andy Bowdy Pastry and boutique café Saga in Sydney, Andy has built a reputation for his decadent cake creations and innovative recipes, incorporating a diversity of flavours and ingredients.  While Andy’s delicious desserts, signature sweets and custom cakes are sure crowd pleasers, hosting the ultimate morning tea experience extends past the selection of treats
on offer.

Tips to Master Your Morning Tea with De’Longhi and Andy Bowdy

Set The Scene. Think of your food as the drama and the table as the stage. Set the mood and create an atmosphere for your morning tea event by considering a table setting theme – whether it’s a seasonal showcase, colour-inspired, high-tea or something in between – you choose.

Plan Ahead. Eliminate any stress and plan ahead. Make sure you have minimal to assemble on the day. Also, don’t be afraid to outsource. Baking for a large number can seem daunting. Go and grab some baked goods or savoury items from your favourite bakeries or fresh food markets.

Cake Creativity. Think outside the box when it comes to baking and your go-to cakes, sweet treats or savoury creations. Experiment with new recipes and flavour combinations. Put your own twist on the classic morning tea fare.

Add Balance. When deciding on what to offer guests at your morning tea, it is important to have a
balance of fruits and vegetables as well as sweets and baked goods.

More Than Tea. Consider food and drink pairings. Have an array of tea options available but also include other drinks such as hot and iced coffee, iced tea or fresh juice.

Add Height. Present your morning tea on cake stands at varying heights to elevate your table setting, adding drama and flair. Tapered candles and glassware are other ways to experience with
height for your table setting.

Kitchen Appliances. Consider the appliances needed to support your morning tea – a toaster for
warming up homemade crumpets, a kettle for freshly brewed tea and a coffee machine for quality
coffee drinks. The striking Icona Capitals collection from De’Longhi will elevate any table setting.

The collection in vibrant ‘New York Yellow’, designed to encapsulate the spirit of the iconic
New York taxi and the city’s bustling energy, includes a 2 and 4-slice Toaster, 1.7 litre Kettle and La
Specialista Arte manual coffee machine, blending effortless function with striking form.

To further show their support of Cancer Council Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea, from the 20th -28th of May, De’Longhi will be offering Sydneysiders a complimentary premium coffee at the De’Longhi Sydney Coffee Lounge, Zetland, in exchange for a donation to Cancer Council Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea. De’Longhi will match all donations made by the public, dollar for dollar, with all proceeds going to Cancer Council.
