To celebrate the upcoming release of the highly-anticipated Beauty and the Beast film, The Kensington Hotel have crafted a special themed Afternoon Tea with a magical twist.
This delightful Afternoon Tea, named Tale As Old As Time, complete with charming Mrs. Potts and Chip Potts dishware, ensures the perfect family outing or fun afternoon with friends and loved ones.
The various sweets and savouries featured in this whimsical afternoon tea are inspired by the characters and scenes of the film. Highlights include Vanilla & Gold Jelly, presented in shot glasses with the ever-symbolic rose petal immersed inside, served with cream poured from Mrs. Potts spout. Other treats include a Spiced Snow Ball Macaroon; Coconut & Chocolate, referring of course to the classic scene featuring Belle and Beast's playful snowball fight.
Also available will be a Chocolate Clock Tart; Chocolate Ganache, featuring an image of the lovable Cogsworth's face. Taken from everyone's favourite song from the film, 'Be Our Guest', will be Town House's 'Try the Grey Stuff' White Chocolate Mousse, a dessert recommended by none other than the iconic candle character, Lumiere.
Alongside this selection of delicious sweets, Town House will also be offering a variety of savoury delights to enjoy, including a hearty Bite-Sized Venison Pie, Cheese Souffle with Roscoff Onion Pissaladiere, and a rich and delicious Beef Ragu & Saffron Arancini served with Lemon Creme Fraiche.
As an alternative to scones for this Afternoon Tea, Town House will be offering Marie's Sweet Brioche Baguette with apricot preserve & chocolate pot, referring to the local baker from Belle's hometown in the film.
