High tea with jewels

Shangri-La Dubai has a new jewellery box inspired high tea and we’re already coming up with Instagram captions.

Shangri-La Hotel, Dubai, announces the launch of its new concept, Jewellery Box High Tea.  A sparkling, golden, masterpiece comprising a bespoke jewellery box with a myriad of drawers is filled with the most delectable, fashionable patisserie and enticing savoury treats.  A culinary gem formulated by the skilled in-house Pâtissier takes its inspiration from both innovation in patisserie and fashion. Designed to be shared by two, the Jewellery Box High Tea offers a truly sophisticated and elegant experience.

Discover delicious surprises of appetising bites in the golden chest of drawers. The selection includes mouth-watering butter cookies, a macadamia nut tart with Chantilly milk chocolate and a perfectly scrumptious café latte panacotta.  For the more experiential palate, the golden drawers also include a green tea fruit roll and a fashion fabulous, lipstick jelly.

No afternoon tea would be complete without savoury pockets of deliciousness such as salmon rolled squid ink bread with cream cheese, asparagus and caviar and tomato, sous vide beef with mustard mayo in waffle basket and tomato consommé with paprika straws. To compete the extravaganza try the light and fluffy, traditional English scones with clotted cream and jam.

Available from Dunes Café, Shangri-La Hotel, Dubai daily from 1pm – 6pm. AED 180.   For reservations or enquiries: 00971 (0) 4 405 2703;
