The iconic London landmark hotel has unveiled ‘The Dorchester at Home’ series, a new delivery and collection service that allows Londoners to savor in some of the luxury hotel’s most popular culinary delights from the comfort of their own homes.

The series which launched simultaneously with the RHS Chelsea Flower Show‘s new virtual offering on Monday 18 May 2020, began with a Chelsea Flower Show inspired Afternoon Tea hamper available for delivery in London. The hamper includes all the delectable treats needed to recreate the hotel’s emblematic pastime at home. All of the proceeds from sales of the teas between 18 and 23 May 2020 will be donated to The Royal Horticultural Society; the world’s leading gardening charity.

In June, The Dorchester at Home series will continue with Traditional Afternoon Tea Hampers along with Make-It-Yourself hampers from The Grill at The Dorchester, including everything required to create favorites such as the Beef Wellington and head chef Tom Booton’s Lobster Thermidor tart. The meal kits come packed with all the necessary ingredients as well as recipe cards created by the hotel’s chefs, along with thoughtful tips on how to create the perfect Dorchester dining experience at home. A percentage of the profits from sales of The Dorchester at Home kits will be donated to Manorfield Primary, an inspiring school in Tower Hamlets with which The Dorchester have enjoyed a successful CSR partnership since 2019.

Parcafé, The Dorchester’s coffee shop that overlooks Hyde Park, is also launching a new take-away menu that will be available for both delivery and collection from Monday 1 June. Guests will be able to purchase the popular artisanal coffee and homemade goodies, along with a new breakfast and lunch menu.
