Celebrated Sculptor Antony Gormley Inspires New Art Afternoon Tea At Rosewood London
This September, Rosewood London will launch a sculpture-inspired art afternoon tea in collaboration with the Royal Academy of Arts, to mark the Academy’s new exhibition celebrating the life and work of internationally acclaimed British sculptor, Antony Gormley. The exhibition is the most significant display of Gormley’s works for over a decade, and will bring together both existing works, and pieces created especially for the show.
Rosewood London’s Executive Pastry Chef, Mark Perkins, has taken inspiration from the exhibition’s artworks and elements of Gormley’s life to develop the collection of pastries served in the Antony Gormley Afternoon Tea.
In addition, Perkins has created a series of four different apple pastries, in homage to Gormley’s 1982 work One Apple. These will include an apple mousse, blackberry cheesecake, praline choux, and apple compote at the end. Presented on a marble tray and sprayed with silver to retain a sculptural feel, these will represent different stages of transformation.
The Antony Gormley afternoon tea will be served at Rosewood London’s Mirror Room, starting with a traditional selection of freshly made finger sandwiches and scones. A wide selection of Mariage Freres teas will also be available.
The Art Afternoon Tea is available from 21st September, weekdays from 2:30 p.m. to 5:45 p.m., and Saturday & Sunday, 12:00 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. It is priced from £60 per person.
