Berkeley Pret-a-Portea - The Royal Collection For Queen's Diamond Jubilee
If you are looking for celebrating Queen Elizabeth’s six long decades on the throne, then the ideal choice will be the Berkeley Hotel's Pret-a-Portea afternoon tea menu. A trendy and classy menu, "The Royal Collection," as it has been named, consists of some chic and modish pastries created by the pastry chefs of Berkeley.
From fancy cakes and choux buns to biscuits, the menu seeks to replicate the most renowned among the Royal Hats that adorned the female members belonging to the Royal Family. The highlight of the menu would be the Princess Beatrice’s royal wedding hat-shaped praline profiterole.
The menu will also include the replica of Queen Elizabeth’s coronation crown – the legendary Imperial crown. It is a vanilla biscuit frosted with a very complex icing and adorned with sugar diamonds.
The vibrant red panna cotta macaroon resembles the Canadian maple leaf hat, that once adorned the “Duchess of Cambridge” – Catherine, while a debonair blueberry hat cake ornamented with green leaves and sugar roses has been designed by Rachel Trevor-Morgan, a Queen’s favorite British milliner.
The light pink floral-trim hat that the Queen wore during her recent Canadian trip, her “black Launer London handbag” with its gold clasp [from her Royal Wedding], and the fascinator which the “Duchess of Cambridge”, Catherine, wore during Zara Philip’s wedding are few among the most interesting delicacies on the tea stand.
According to laus Kabelitz, the General Manager at "The Berkeley", “It is most definitely an exciting year for London and we had to think of a unique way to pay tribute to the Queens’s Diamond Jubilee. Our fashion inspired afternoon tea has always been a favorite with visitors and Londoners alike and we felt this was the perfect way to join in the nationwide celebration in June. The Berkeley is only a stones-throw from Buckingham Palace and I will personally be making a celebratory afternoon tea delivery to mark this special occasion!”
