Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane announces the 2015 launch of its picnic-inspired afternoon tea for two, available for GBP 39 per person or GBP 59 per person with a glass of Bollinger Rosé Champagne each.
The afternoon tea picnic will be available in Amaranto and on Amaranto’s charming landscaped split level terrace that has been designed to capture the changing seasons of the park-like setting beyond – perfect for the warmer spring and summer days.
Served from a wicker picnic hamper, the afternoon tea comprises vintage tins containing a range of sandwiches, cakes and scones designed with a British twist, evoking the warmest of British summer picnic feelings. The sandwiches include honey roast ham and English mustard; East End smoked salmon and prawn cocktail mayonnaise; cucumber and cream cheese with wasabi on cranberry bread; and organic roast chicken, sage and onion stuffing and mustard mayonnaise on onion bread.
In keeping with afternoon tea tradition, the sandwiches are accompanied by a tin of raisin and traditional scones, served warm with strawberry jam, lemon curd and thick clotted cream. To complete the classic affair, Head Pastry Chef Loic Carbonnet has created a tin of delightful treats with a classic British summer twist: Pimm’s mousse; rhubarb and custard ice cream lolly; pistachio and strawberry tartlet; chocolate and raspberry macaron; and a trifle made with seasonal fruit.
The picnic hamper also includes a tea-brewing egg timer to ensure the accompanying tea served is just right to the preference of the guest, be it strong, medium or weak.
