Remember Selasi Gbormittah? The dreamy Great British Bake Off semi-finalist from back in 2016?
Well, the GBBO star has launched his very own afternoon tea at Mayfair hotel DUKES LONDON, in collaboration with Great British Restaurant Chef Nigel Mendham.
Available until October 6, this extra special afternoon tea celebrates British Food Fortnight, the biggest annual national event for British food and drink.
The tea will feature classic sandwiches made with the finest British ingredients, including London-cured smoked salmon with dill cream cheese on beetroot bread, and free range egg mayo with autumn truffle and watercress.
As for the sweet treats, you can expect plenty of Selasi’s signature flavours, such as chocolate clusters with orange cream and chocolate feuilletine, and a fig and almond tart with spiced almond cream, toasted almonds and a honey glaze.
Of course there’ll also be scones, because it wouldn’t be an afternoon tea without them, as well as a selection of loose-leaf teas and infusions.
Location: DUKES LONDON, 35 St James’s Place, St. James’s, SW1A 1NY. Nearest station: Green Park. See it on Google Maps.
Opening hours: Selasi’s Signature Afternoon Tea is available between 12-6pm, until October 6 2019.
Prices: £35 (or £45 with a glass of Champagne).
