The United Way Youth Team is hosting High Tea On The Hill is 1-2:30 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 16, in the lobby at Los Alamos High School at 1300 Diamond Dr. This event is a great chance for tea lovers in the community to get together and talk about all things tea.
This year’s theme is “mad hatter”, so the community is invited to wear their best or silliest tea hat, and the two attendees with the best hats will receive a teapot that has been decorated by the National Art Honors Society at Los Alamos High School.
This year’s High Tea On The Hill is catered by award-winning Chef Laura Crucet Hamilton, a Texas native whose culinary career spans 18 years and two continents. Hamilton is a graduate of the world-famous Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, co-author of several cookbooks, an acclaimed cooking instructor and now the owner of the Pig & Fig eatery in White Rock.
