There’s a saying in the world of theatre – ‘form over content’ – which essentially means that lots of effort has been put into making the lighting, the music and the costumes amazing… but the play itself is underwhelming. I’ve often thought of this phrase when faced with beautiful looking cakes in cafes and hotels, which sparkle and glow and look very fancy pants…. but when it comes to it, just don’t taste that great.
But THIS art-inspired afternoon tea, at Rosewood London, was absolutely, one hundred percent, not one of those occasions. On the contrary, it’s one of the best afternoon teas I’ve ever had.
