Every Londoner’s favourite Charlie is now the theme of a gob-stopping, gum-dropping Afternoon Tea in London… That’s right, Willy Wonka’s boy wonder, Charlie Bucket, now has a whole tea in his honour at the Chesterfield Mayfair.
You can even get Willy Wonka himself to sing Happy Birthday to you… after all he is the maker of music and the dreamer of dreams…
Delectable savouries include finger sandwiches with fancy fillings like roast chicken, grain mustard mayonnaise and nibbed almonds on white bread or Scottish smoked salmon with horseradish cream cheese on beetroot bread. Golly gobstopper.
And for sweet, you can test your Charlie and the Chocolate Factory knowledge by reminiscing in the references behind these delicious desserts… blueberry macaron, bubblegum éclair, fizzy lifting cake, fruity tart, Oompa Loompa cupcake, white chocolate golden egg, milk chocolate Wonka bar… Jammy!
Candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker. Why not a magnum of Lansom Champagne (Grown Up Candy) for £130?
Or a rather Roald Dahl-ing Dancing Dragon flowering tea…?
Above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Like the Chesterfield Mayfair…
