It is finally beginning to feel like spring has sprung, and after a harsh winter of storms and snow, there has never been more of a need to celebrate the arrival of springtime in style.
Launching for the first time this Easter weekend, luxurious five star The Westbury, in the heart of Dublin, will offer a limited-edition Springtime Themed Afternoon Tea to be enjoyed in the elegant surrounds of The Gallery – the perfect place to soak up the spring sunshine.
The much-loved tradition of Afternoon Tea at The Westbury has undergone a Springtime transformation from The Westbury’s pastry team led by the talented Rey Encarnacion, who has created a divine seasonal menu inspired by traditional Easter treats and delicious flavours.
Seasonal flavours jump off the three tiered display, and include an eclectic mix of fruits and spices, and of course everyone’s favourite Easter treat – chocolate. Guests can enjoy a selection of handmade miniature desserts including a delectable Vanilla Rice Pudding Arancini with a crumbling Coconut Crust, a White Chocolate & Macha Ganache with a Gingernut Base, a flavoursome Citrus Jelly served with a Mandarin Compote and Chantilly Cream, a Coffee Eclair with Toasted Sesame and a scrumptious Banana Passion Fruit Tartlet with a Hazelnut base.
Warm up your sweet tooth beforehand with an array of tempting savouries including Honey-Baked Limerick Ham with Sundried Tomato Relish on Malt Harvest, Truffled Chicken Salad served on a Brioche Roll, Truffled Egg Salad on Milk Pan and Oak Smoked Salmon & Crab with Lemon Aioli on Homemade Soda Bread.
A delicious selection of fruit and citrus teas accompany the savoury and sweet treats, from Darjeeling Summer Gold to Peach & Ginseng Oolong, with this unforgettable afternoon tea experience costing €50 per person. However, if you truly want to celebrate and spoil yourself, for €65 per person you can enjoy your tea with a glass of Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut NV or Perrier-Jouët Blason Rosé NV or really splash out with Dom Pérignon Champagne Afternoon Tea for €85 per person.
