The Berkeley Hotel Afternoon Tea
Fashionable High Tea
My friend, Kathy, is taking a couple of her friends to the Berkley Hotel in London for a farewell tea. What an awesome theme!
Mouth-watering Prêt-à-Portea delicacies with a fashionista twist.
The Berkeley London designer afternoon tea, Prêt-à-Portea, is inspired by the themes and colours of the fashion world. The menu is transformed every six months to follow the changing seasons in fashion.
Inspired by the Spring/Summer 2009 fashion collections, this season's afternoon tea at The Berkeley in London.
A collection of cakes and fancies in in the colours of the fashion season and in the style of the world’s finest designers:
Lavin duo of blueberry and passion fruit mousse with flowing bright yellow meringue
Balmain almond macaroon jacket filled with white chocolate and pistachio ganache
Hervé Léger vivid orange bikini vanilla biscuit with signature criss-cross banding
Alexander McQueen ‘Elvie’ chocolate truffle tote wrapped in mint flavoured marzipan
Christian Louboutin coconut cream sponge cake shoe topped with metallic frill
Christopher Kane clementine bavaroise with signature over-sized circles of pate de fruit
Oscar de la Renta black and white belted chocolate dress biscuit
Josh Goot blocked dress of strawberry pannacotta and mango crème topped with kiwi marshmallows
Michael Kors red and blue striped Regatta dress cake of rich Valrhona chocolate
Can't wait for picts, Kathy.
