Oh my Goody Goodness!!!
If you ever want an Afternoon Tea EXPERIENCE go to the Mirror Room at the Rosewood Hotel, Holborn, London.
I have to thank Julie of Balzer Designs for discovering this place.
Fred and I went there for our last date. With my sister, we met my son and granddaughter, Big Sis. We entered the imposingly huge and very grand Hotel and went into the Mirror Room. Have you ever seen such tall lilies!
the tea started with a variety of dainty sandwiches
The green bread has taragon in it and makes a chicken sandwich – I can’t describe how delicious that was, then beef and horseradish and the third delicate salmon pate, there were others as well.
The tea – Oolong.
My only disappointment was that there was only one type of Japanese tea, the rest were China teas.
But the cakes! That is what you go to the Mirror Room for!
They are all in the style of famous artists: Pollock, Koonsberg, Banksi ……
My photos are hopeless as the room was so dimly lit. I have had to lighten these on the computer, but go to the website to see them beautifully photographed.
Fred had his eye on the Banksi
the walls of the cake were made of solid chocolate and inside was a heavenly mix of deliciousness with salted caramel
Each cake took ages eat so as to savour the flavours. We were able to send a doggy bag home to my d-i-l and Twig and Twiglet
Amazing. The hotel is full of sculpture and art – I will be back!
All too soon the weekend was at an end and I had to say a fond farewell to Fred
Until the next time…..
