Tarts complete magical journey from Kew to Kuala Lumpur
Guardian.co.uk, 6 January 2015
The maids of honour tarts were first discovered by king Henry VIII and were declared so delicious the recipe was kept under lock and key for 200 years. The monarch is believed to have seen Anne Boleyn eating the tarts baked by one of her maids of honour and was so captivated by the tart's taste he declared they should be made only for the royal court. The recipe was kept a secret until the 18th century when it was leaked by a palace cook to a bakery in Richmond where Robert Newens served his apprenticeship before starting the Newens family business in 1850. Last month, the recipe was finally shared on the other side of the world, with the opening of a Newens Tea House at Starhill Gallery in the Malaysian capital city. The tea house, which can seat 197 people, was officially opened on December 9 by the British High Commissioner to Malaysia, Her Excellency Victoria Treadell, Tan Sri Francis Yeoh, managing director of YTL Corporation Berhad, and Dean Martin, owner of the original Newens Tea House in Kew Road.
