Founder and life-long baker Peggy is returning to The Lanesborough, where she held her first prestigious pastry chef position in 1999 after graduating from Le Cordon Bleu’s ‘The Grand Diploma of Cuisine & Patisserie’. This time Peggy, alongside her skilled pastry chef team, is returning to design a beautifully unique afternoon tea experience in collaboration with The Lanesborugh’s Head Pastry Chef Kevin Miller.
Available from 3 March to 2 June 2020, the tea will be filled with spring delights: under the naturally-illuminated domed glass roof of Michelin-starred Céleste, pink-hued creations decorated with floral accents and bursting with fresh flavors will be presented. Some of Peggy Porschen’s signature creations will be served, along with classic afternoon tea essentials such as finger sandwiches, scones, clotted cream and jam. Bespoke Peggy Porschen and The Lanesborough afternoon tea blends will accompany the baked goods. Guests will also be invited to choose a slice of one Peggy Porschen’s signature layer cakes on the day from a specially designed trolley.
