Please consider L'Auberge Edge of Seattle Inn as  the venue location for your up coming Tea Party, Coffee Service ($30.00pp) Wedding  
Shower, Baby Shower, Birthday Party, Ladies Club get together or Team Building experience taking a hands-on French Regional Cooking Class or taking a varietal Wine Seminar.
We offer Team Building "Corporate" Cooking Classes for 3-4 hours.
Team Building Cooking Classes are designed to enhance group communication, encourage teamwork, increase trust and nurture the development of friendships outside of the working environment.
Novelist Robert Louis Stevenson urged people to invest in people.  As he put it, "Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant."  So help others.  Be a team player.  Arrest someone's attention with your generosity, because it almost always leads to a win-win.

That's why the Chinese are known for a particular proverb.  They say, "If you want 1 year of prosperity, grow grain. If you want 10 years of prosperity, grow trees. If you want 100 years of prosperity, grow people."
And as you well know, we need team players in today's business environment.  According to "Talent Management" in their January 2010 issue, the percentage of employees willing to go the extra mile for the company has fallen 12 to 24% over the past 18 months.  Engagement has become an even bigger issue than it was in the past.  Their conclusion?  We desperately need employees who are committed, engaged team players if we're going to make it through these tough economic times.

Call ahead for reservation!  (425) 260-6213
We are an ideal venue location for holistic workshops and we are located on a secluded five acres...where it is quiet,  peaceful and harmonious with nature.  We are close by urban communities and yet we give the impression of being a world away.

                 History of High Tea from the archives of Epicurean


High Tea originated as a British working class tradition.  “High” refers to the way it was taken, sitting atop stools in a teashop or standing at counter or buffet table.  It was a cross between afternoon tea and supper, and for many it was the main meal of the day?  The afternoon tea idea began around the mid 1700’s as a way to ward off the inevitable hunger before dinner.  Today, it has become a more elegant affair.  This affair has become less a working class meal and more of an event.  In some cities, it is a “power” business event.  Having High Tea with a client is preferred to the more traditional “night out” and offers a much better atmosphere for discussing business


When to serve it?  The high time of the day, around 3 or 4 O’clock in the afternoon.


What to serve?  Tea sandwiches for starts, also puddings, cakes, crumpets and scones served with jellies and marmalades.


Why?  It’s the civilized thing to do.  The traditional afternoon tea offers a pleasant break in the day, a chance for conversation, relaxation and have of course a good cup of tea!
