Guoman Hotels Announces Launch of Wizard of Oz Afternoon Tea
LONDON, Jan. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Guoman Hotels has announced that it will be launching a Wizard of Oz themed Afternoon Tea at The Royal Horseguards Hotel in London’s Whitehall in order to celebrate the launch of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Wizard of Oz, which opens at the London Palladium in February.
To create an enjoyable evening of theatre and food, the hotel has designed an exclusive Wizard of Oz afternoon tea menu, ideal for enjoying prior to attending the musical.
Conveniently located close to the London Palladium, The Royal Horseguards’ Wizard of Oz Afternoon Tea has been designed by the hotel’s creative pastry chef Joanne Todd.
Joanne has devised a whole host of whimsical treats, with the menu including Follow the Yellow Brick Road battenburg cake, made using sponge and buttercream; Courage Ale and Raisin cupcakes; and Tin Man’s Heart chocolates. Tea or coffee can be served with Dorothy’s Ruby slipper candies, shoe-shaped chocolates filled with strawberry cream, and a Emerald City lime jelly, which is reduced from fresh lime juice and paired with sweet pastry and lime Chantilly cream.
Further complimenting the menu are a Wicked Witch Hat chocolate lollipop and Over the Rainbow macaroons which combine all the colours of the rainbow. The fairytale inspired treats are also accompanied by a selection of scones, preserves or clotted cream.
To round off the sweet treats an exclusive range of cocktails are also available at an additional cost, with the choice of Brains, Heart, Home or Courage.
