Coinciding with the horticultural (and London) favourite that is the Chelsea Flower Show, InterContinental London Park Lane have just launched their Scents of Summer afternoon tea. Executive Chef Ashley Wells has joined forces with Edward Bodenham (9th generation of British Family Perfumers Floris London) to create a tea, which as the name suggests, is inspired by the floral scents of summer.  Served in the Wellington Lounge, the tea begins with strawberry pearl wheatgrass and citrus mist palate cleanser before moving onto sandwiches which are served in the way perfumes should be smelled.

Lobster Live Arrives at Bodo’s Schloss

Which is why we’re ignoring today and looking to tomorrow, the middle of week, it’s freewheeling all the way to the weekend from Wednesday. This of course is a reason to celebrate and Bodo’s Schloss thinks so too because they’ve just launched Lobster Live on Wednesdays.  Following on from the popular Fondue Wednesdays this new summer offering will see fresh lobster being served with chips and salad for a pretty sweet £25. Because why not have lobster […]
