This year, DUKES LONDON is celebrating the culinary delights of the British Food Fortnight with a very special collaboration and the introduction of an exclusive afternoon tea menu available for a limited time only. ‘Great British Bake Off’ semi-finalist Selasi Gbormittah has partnered with our very own DUKES LONDON Executive Head Chef, Nigel Mendham, to bring a unique twist to the classic British staple we all know and love. Selasi’s Signature Afternoon Tea is available this Autumn.
The partnership between Selasi and Chef Nigel has resulted
in a mouth-watering array of both savoury and sweet treats. Highlights from the
selection of sandwiches include H Forman’s London cure smoked salmon with dill
cream cheese served on beetroot bread and free-range egg mayonnaise with autumn
truffle and watercress on white bread. Enjoy a broccoli, parmesan and avocado
warm savoury tart before moving on to your decadent dessert selection,
including a Blackberry Yuzu Financier with citrus syrup and soft whipped Crème
Chantilly and a Choux Surprise with caramel, white chocolate mousse and pear. As
always, this spectacular afternoon tea is served alongside scones and our
amazing selection of fine loose-leaf teas and infusions.

March is all about the celebration of women here at DUKES Hotel with two very important female centred days taking place this month – International Women’s Day and Mother’s Day 2019. As a female lead hotel, we truly understand the importance of championing women and their achievements. We have dedicated the entirety of March to the ladies in our lives with our aptly named ‘All About the Duchess’ month.
Mothers have such special and important roles in our lives and is only right that we recognise all that they do for us. Mother’s Day 2019 is on the 31st March and is the perfect opportunity to say ‘thank you’ for the sacrifices they make and appreciate the love that they show us. Booking them a treat at DUKES London is the perfect gift and the range of packages available for our ‘All About the Duchess’ month means there is something to suit everybody. As an added bonus, all bookings in March are entered in a draw to win a spa day package.
