The Savoy’s Diamond Jubilee Afternoon Tea inspired by The Queen’s couturier, Stewart Parvin The Savoy marks this royal occasion with a very British tradition

The Savoy marks this royal occasion with a very British tradition
To celebrate the Diamond Jubilee, The Savoy will be offering a special afternoon tea throughout June which has been inspired by the designs of one of the Queen’s favourite couturiers Stewart Parvin.    Awarded a Royal Warrant of Appointment to HM The Queen in 2007, Stewart’s designs have been worn by Her Majesty to occasions such as Royal Ascot, State Visits and Overseas Royal Tours. Ooooh you remember how Graydon Carter told Peachy Deegan about The Savoy at Landmarks ages ago...when he was drinking The Graydon Carter.  Graydon have you drank The Peachy yet?

Stewart has been designing for The Queen since 2000 using an elegant palette of colours such as lilac, lavender, coral pink, raspberry and royal blue.  The Savoy’s Executive Pastry Chef, Martin Chiffers, worked with Stewart and drew inspiration from his sketches and swatches of fabric to create the gorgeous cakes which pay tribute to the Queen’s iconic style.  They include Royal Sash – a white chocolate coconut slice, Floral Éclair – a lavender & vanilla éclair, Cherry Jubilee – a cherry and kirsch macaroon and The Queen’s Hat – a raspberry yoghurt mousse, with praline and velvet chocolate as well as a Royal Blueberry Tartlet and a Royal Red Chocolate Slice decorated with a “sugar diamond”. 
The Savoy Diamond Jubilee Afternoon Tea will be served in the Thames Foyer throughout June and also includes a selection of finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones served with clotted cream, homemade lemon curd & strawberry preserve and the Thames Foyer Signature Cakes including a classic Victoria Sponge & Savoy Fruit Cake. 

The Savoy Diamond Jubilee Afternoon Tea is priced at £40.00 per person or £54.00 per person with a glass of Ruinart Rose Champagne.  Reservations for afternoon tea at    The Savoy are available daily from 1.30pm to 5.45pm and can be made by telephoning +44(0)20 7420 2111 or emailing
