Peggy Porschen Afternoon Tea
at The Lanesborough

Lanesborough Afternoon Tea

What a total TOTAL treat this was.

I’d been in Covent garden earlier in the day and I walked through the wiggly streets of London, in a bit of sun, wind, rain and sun again… (hello, Autumn!) to Hyde Park Corner, where I was greeted by an extremely gentlemanly doorman, who welcomed me into The Lanesborough Hotel, for a very special afternoon tea.

I’ve long been a fan of Peggy Porschen, so this beautiful pink and floral tea couldn’t have been more up my street. We settled into the sofas at the Michelin-starred Céleste and although it was a fairly gloomy day outside, the room was filled with a beautiful natural light, thanks to its naturally illuminated domed glass roof, and there were glorious pinkish blooms and exquisite floral features all about us… heaven.

Founder and life-long baker Peggy held her first prestigious pastry chef position at The Lanesborough in 1999, after graduating from Le Cordon Bleu’s ‘The Grand Diploma of Cuisine & Patisserie’… so it’s even more special that she has returned!

Alongside her skilled pastry chef team, she has designed a beautifully unique afternoon tea experience in collaboration with The Lanesborough’s Head Pastry Chef Kevin Miller.

We even had a few cakes left over to take home – we were brought some beautiful boxes and bags to package up our patisserie and I was the envy of everyone on the tube home.
