In the birthplace of the afternoon tea, The Langham in London, a unique collaboration is taking place between internationally recognised jewellery designer Theo Fennell and the hotel’s award winning Head Pastry Chef Cherish Finden to create what is described as the Bijoux Afternoon Tea collaboration.
It was in 1865 within the Palm Court of the Langham that the first afternoon tea as we know it was served and with the tradition continuing to this day. This collaboration between the designer and master pastry chef has created a selection of irresistible treats each inspired by one of Theo Fennell’s hand-crafted jewellery designs.
The decadent savouries include Foie Gras and Smoked Duck with Mandarin, Beetroot Cured Scottish Salmon with Grey Goose Vodka Cream plus Pearl Las and Broccoli Quiche with Piquillo Peppers.
Dishes such as the Salted caramel Pearl and Pistachio Fudge were designed by Theo to compliment his 18ct Yellow Gold and Pearl Tropical collection, and the Kentish Strawberry with White Balsamic Macaroon celebrate the signature Art Pendants hand produced by Theo Fennell.
This most exclusive afternoon tea is available daily from the 8th April until November 2013, and is priced at £49.00 per person inc. VAT.
