Art-Inspired High Tea
It looks so good, you might not want to eat it
Rosewood London have just taken high tea to a new level. Launching this month in the hotel’s fine dining restaurant called Mirror Room, they’ve created a range of pastries inspired by the work of Yayoi Kusama, Alexander Calder, Mark Rothko, Damien Hirst and Banksy. Even if you don’t know who all those people are, it won’t matter, you’ll be too busy being blown away by the level of detail and deliciousness that have gone into their creations.
“I was inspired by the art scene in London and by the captivating contemporary and traditional art pieces featured throughout Rosewood London,” executive pastry chef Mark Perkins said. “The idea progressed from there and greta consideration went into deciding upon which art genres and movements we wanted to focus on. I settled on modern art, as it offers many interesting shapes, colors and designs.”
Check out the gallery below. Prices start at $57USD per head, without a glass of “R” de Ruinart champagne.
