This January, Rosewood London’s Mirror Room will launch an Art Afternoon Tea. Imagined by Rosewood London executive pastry chef, Mark Perkins, the afternoon tea is inspired by London’s vibrant and unique art scene, and will celebrate five iconic artists: Yayoi Kusama, Alexander Calder, Mark Rothko, Damien Hirst and Banksy.
To be served in Rosewood London’s Mirror Room – itself a stunning work of art – the art- inspired afternoon tea will encapsulate creativity and modernity in keeping with the artistic philosophy of Rosewood London itself, the interiors of which reflect the British capital’s unique and stylish history, culture and sensibilities.
Mark Perkins says: “London is one of the leading lights in the arts world, and I am continuously excited and surprised by it. Taking inspiration from some of the works exhibited here in the capital, I am delighted to present Mirror Room’s first Art Afternoon Tea.”
With a menu that is a work of art in itself, incorporating Mark’s very own illustrations of his sweet serves, the tea will follow the format of a quintessentially British afternoon tea. Guests will first be presented with delicate sandwiches filled with time-honoured and perfectly executed flavours, as well as freshly baked scones also from the pastry kitchen, served with clotted cream, lemon curd and homemade strawberry jam.
