There are some that think that Dr Sean Beer is as good looking as Tome Cruise in the 1988 film Cocktail, and possibly these pictures dispel all doubt (probably not).
Here Sean is pictured engaging in the practical part of his presentation, Food and culture: Heritage and Tradition at the recent Catering and Retail Show. This featured his reworking of the classic cream tea to produce a Dorset cream tea involving, Saffron Scones, Dorset Blueberry Jam, Vanilla Clotted Cream and Dorset Tea or Coffee. This was followed by a Dorset cream tea for 2050 featuring Dorset Blue Vinney Scones, Crème Fraîche, Dorset Naga Chilli Jam and Dorset Long Tea.
For those not in the know, Dorset Long Tea is Mixologist Dr Beer’s version of Long Island Iced Tea a special mix of……… Black Cow Vodka, Conker Gin, Dorset Apple Schnapps, Elderflower Pressé, Cointreau, Dorset Honey Stock Syrup, and lots of ice. All this was underpinned by the philosophy of Husserl and Heidegger.
Yes to philosophy. Yes to the Dorset cream teas. Yes to Dorset Iced Tea. But we think a no to Sean as Tom Cruise.
