Gluten Free Afternoon Tea at The Peabody Hotel, Memphis

 
My gluten free afternoon tea at The Peabody Memphis
included all the same tea sandwich fillings as
Austin and Glenn's with the difference of being served
on gluten free bread.
I appreciated the way my sandwiches were also garnished.
The savory sandwiches included:
Crab Salad
Cucumber and Tomato
Chicken Salad
Prosciutto and Melon
Smoked Salmon

 
I forgot to take a photo of my "scone" second course,
which was actually a small gluten free bagel.
My third course, the pastries and sweets included:
Chocolate Dipped Strawberry
Raspberry Parfait
Cheesecake in a Chocolate Shell
White Chocolate Mixed Nuts
Chocolate Chip Cookie
A big 'thank you" for this wonderful gluten free afternoon tea experience!
 
After the delightful tea service we visited the famous
Peabody Ducks in the fountain of the hotel lobby. 

The Peabody Duck March as directed by the Duckmaster,
takes place every day at 11:00 a.m. when the red carpet is laid out and
they come to the lobby,
and at 5:00 p.m. when they march out the red carpet,
and  ride the elevator back up to their penthouse coop.
 
The Peabody Duck March is an event attended by
many tourists and guests as you can see in these photos.
