The frightfully British tradition of afternoon tea gets a modern makeover at The Langham hotel in London this spring. From 8 April, enjoy a Bijoux Afternoon Tea in the elegant surrounds of the Palm Court, featuring a menu of fashionable finger food, inspired by Theo Fennell's jewellery collection.
A collaboration between two Great British institutions - Europe's first 'Grand Hotel' and the celebrated jewellery designer - The Langham is regarded as the birthplace of the afternoon tea tradition. Well-heeled Londoners have been indulging in this quintessentially British pastime there for nearly 150 years, and Head Pastry Chef Cherish Finden - recently voted 'Pastry Chef of the Year' at the Craft Guild Awards - is charged with creating the mini masterpieces that feature on the Bijoux Afternoon Tea menu.
Mirroring Fennell's Gold and Pearl Tropical Collection, the Salted Caramel Pearl and Pistachio Fudge features a bite-sized 'pearl', above which sits a perfectly carved, edible seahorse. The Kentish Strawberry with White Balsamic Macaroon is sealed with a kiss, a nod to the designer's cheeky Art Pendants. Imaginative savouries include Beetroot Cured Scottish Salmon with Grey Goose Vodka Cream and Pearl Las and Broccoli Quiche with Piquillo Peppers, served alongside a range of teas, as recommended by the hotel's tea sommelier.
Available from 8 April until November, the Theo Fennell Bijoux Afternoon Tea at The Langham is priced at £49 per person.
You can indulge in Theo Fennell's Bijoux Afternoon Tea at The Langham between now and November.
