A Fashionably 5* Gluten-Free Afternoon Tea
Legs crossed, check. Must have ‘it bag’ at feet, definitely. Serious fashion face, tick. Fabulous accessorising, for sure. Whilst these are the trademarks of London Fashion Week’s front-rowers, fashionistas everywhere, along with the capital’s carb-conscious, can enjoy the delicious gluten-free afternoon tea from Michelin-starred chef William Drabble of the luxury five star St James’ Hotel & Club.
Launching for London Fashion Week on the 15th February, the new afternoon tea from one of London’s best chefs is an indulgent escape from the catwalk chaos. Rest your Louboutins in the luxurious and tranquil surroundings of the hotel and indulge in fabulous fancies that deliver on taste as well as being real eye-candy.
See airy macaroons layered with fresh raspberries; delicate financiers embellished with seasonal berries; corset-friendly chocolate mousse cake; light lemon drizzle cake; and scones dressed with clotted cream and a rich homemade strawberry preserve. For just £19, the afternoon tea is served with a selection of freshly made wafer thin sandwiches on gluten-free bread and a choice of the finest teas and herbal infusions from around the world.
Feeling fabulous? Then upgrade to haute couture, and enjoy with a glass of Jacquart Champagne for £34.
So don’t make a foodie faux pas and settle for anything less when the fashion brigade rolls into town.
