A Twist on High Tea - Swedish Sandwich Cake Recipe

High Tea with a Twist, Scones (foreground) & Jubileumstårta
I was recently having lunch with a couple of pals at our Swedish friend's newly landscaped outdoor garden patio when she whipped up this amazing Swedish Sandwich (Jubilee) Cake - Jubileumstårta. In Sweden this Jubilee cake can be ordered any most bakeries and is often used as a celebration cake for anniversaries, graduations etc.

I bought along some of my freshly made scones (Mary Berry recipe) as an after-sweet but to be honest this sandwich cake is a fabulous and opulent divergence from your everyday high tea. It is impressive and I was surprised at how simple it is to put together, so I've put the recipe that my friend used below. Enjoy!
Jubileumstårta - Sandwich Cake

You are aiming for a sandwich that literally follows this format:

Tuna Filling
Egg Filling
Tuna Filling

Start with the bread first and layout three pieces for the bottom layer. Put half the tuna filling on the bottom layer of bread first. Add another layer of bread to this, then put the egg mixture on this layer, then add another layer of bread and put the remaining tuna filling on top then add the final bread layer. Finally garnish the entire sandwich with mayonnaise followed by the remaining garnishes.
Of course you can add your own filling of whatever you like, if you want to stick with the seafood theme you could salmon pate mixed with prawn, ham cheese tomato. It is limitless.

Le Salon Prive Restaurant, St Margarets Twickenham

La Salon Prive (The Private Lounge) is actually a newly re-invigorated, and much needed refurbished Brula - a French Bistro restaurant based in St Margaret's, Twickenham for over 15 years.
The restaurant went through an ownership change back in January (the former owners having connections with other Richmond restaurants, La Buvette and A Cena, as well as Covent Garden restaurant Joe Allens). The new proprietor happens to be the same owner of a very popular Italian restaurant, Bacco, in Richmond. Bacco is one of my top Italian fine dining eats and here's a review of Bacco here.

La Salon have kept the lovely glass stained windows but have totally redone the inside. Formerly the restaurant resembled something similar to your geriatric granny's living room - it might seem charming but it really felt like it had been under-invested, incidentally a similar theme also exists at Richmond restaurant La Buvette. After La Salon's refurbishment the room feels much lighter inside,…

Petersham Hotel | Restaurant Review | Richmond

The Petersham Hotel Restaurant Richmond
Things are looking up for Petersham Hotel, they have a new Head Chef Adebola Adeshina who seems to be proving a winner for the restaurant, and I was to discover why. 
Adebola is a popular chap (fanboy's in my twitter stream confessing their love), he is most certainly friendly, has oodles of experience to match and it is understandable why, he is an all round nice guy. Adebola worked at a number of top London eateries, starting out at Gordon Ramsay's first restaurant, Aubergine before moving on to Gordon's 3 Michelin star restaurant on Hospital Road. He's also worked with Marcus Wareing at Petrus, Philip Howard at the Square, ...I mean, what more could you possibly want?
I was lucky enough to score an invitation to discover the new chefs cuisine, and as usual I always like to have full disclosure that this was a sponsored visit. I have however dined before and found the standard excellent enough to recommend Petersham as one of …
