The Couture High Tea

Let them eat cake at this chic French-inspired high tea at the Sofitel Sydney Wentworth.

High tea is typically considered a British tradition, however, the Sofitel Sydney Wentworth is giving it a decidedly Parisian touch.

For a limited time only, the Sydney hotel is serving up a sophisticated spread every Saturday and Sunday from 1–3pm, for $89 per person. And, although you won't find scones and cucumber sandwiches on the menu, you'll still say "oui oui" to the selection of sweet and savoury delicacies being dished up.

As well as taking inspiration from the couture catwalks of the City of Love, and treating guests to tea in the Sofitel's plush Velvet Room, the menu is also reminiscent of the kind of flavours you would find in a traditional French patisserie.

Get started with a mini baguette with slow-roasted truffle beef, before tucking into petit pea choux and caviar, dainty quiche with smoked duck and porcini and traditional French chicken pithivier pies.

Then, indulge in sweet treats such as elegant macarons, religieuse (choux pastries filled with rose and raspberry cream), mandarin-vanilla cannelés and a decadent Opera cake featuring lemon myrtle meringue. And while warm brews will be on the menu, we suggest complementing your feast with a glass of fine French Champagne — Moet Imperial to be precise.

Whoever said "let them eat cake" was definitely onto something.
