– Our Executive Chef –

Suffolk House’s food is taken care of by our executive chef Mathijs Nanne. Originally from the Netherlands, Mathijs spent his formative years cooking in the Australian food capital, Sydney.

Malaysia followed, where he run the kitchens of some of the most exciting restaurants in Langkawi and Penang. He was part of the opening teams of Straits Club Restaurant (Temple Tree Resort, Langkawi) and China House (Penang), after which he joined the YKH Group of Restaurants, where he was the executive chef of 32 at the Mansion.

No stranger to the local herbs and spices, Mathijs deftly combines European cooking techniques with the vibrant flavours Penang has to offer. He is a strong believer of using locally sourced produce. 

While giving a nod to the rich British history of Suffolk House, you can look forward to dishes that may well have ingredients found in Penang’s very own backyard.

History Of The Afternoon Tea

Afternoon tea, that most quintessential of English customs is, perhaps surprisingly, a relatively new tradition.  Whilst the custom of drinking tea dates back to the third millennium BC in China and was popularized in England during the 1660s by King Charles II and his wife the Portuguese Infanta Catherine de Braganza, it was not until the mid 17th century that the concept of ‘afternoon tea’ first appeared.
Afternoon tea was introduced in England by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, in the year 1840. The Duchess would become hungry around four o’clock in the afternoon. The evening meal in her household was served fashionably late at eight o’clock, thus leaving a long period of time between lunch and dinner. The Duchess asked that a tray of tea, bread and butter and cake be brought to her room during the late afternoon. This became a habit of hers and she began inviting friends to join her.
This pause for tea became a fashionable social event. During the 1880’s upper-class and society women would change into long gowns, gloves and hats for their afternoon tea which was usually served in the drawing room between four and five o’clock.
