Pret-A-Portea, The Berkeley

In October 2016, a cookbook was also released to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the Prêt-à-Portea. For a special event celebrated at the afternoon tea, it is a nice gesture to remember the celebration.

For those who enjoy a hands on experience the Berkeley now offers masterclasses with Head Pastry Chef Mourad Khiat where one can make Jason Wu cherry mousse, Manolo Blahnik stiletto biscuits and Moschino sponge handbags, and enjoy Champagne Prêt-à-Portea following the class. The class is £225 with an addittional 12.5% discretionary service charge.

In May 2018, there is also the option to book a Royal Prêt-à-Portea masterclass to celebrate the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Pastries will include limited edition bridal couture biscuits.

Review

This is the afternoon tea for any fashion lover. Having graduated from fashion school, I could not think of a better place to celebrate my graduation. And it was an amazing idea. The pastries are delicious, and the sandwiches were all also excellent. Individually the cakes were not too sweet, but it can possibly be a bit overwhelming for those without a sweet tooth. However, it was the case of something that not only looks beautiful but also tastes excellent. Something to be mindful of nevertheless is that the afternoon tea can replace a whole meal, and I, therefore, recommend not eating a big lunch before visiting to be able to fully enjoy the experience. The hotel was also as kind as offering my friends and my champagne when they heard that we were celebrating her birthday and my graduation. It was a gesture that very much touched me, and also otherwise the service was perfect in every manner.

This afternoon tea is on my list of places I wish to return to, and with pastries changing every 6 month, I now have a cheeky excuse to do so.
