The Okura Prestige Bangkok’s executive pastry chef Sebastiaan Hoogewerf and his team are taking inspiration from spring and the arrival of Japan’s sakura cherry tree blossoms to create a special Sakura Afternoon Tea set for two at Up & Above Bar from 1 April to 30 June 2020.
Savoury delights include Parma ham, crabmeat and brie cheese; marinated crab meat in mini soft rolls; brie cheese with asparagus, sundried tomatoes and brown bread; and duck rillettes with raspberry jam in mini soft rolls.
Sweet confections include Hokkaido milk strawberry roulade; sakura chocolate praline; cherry blossom macaron; strawberry and Hokkaido milk custard; sakura cold cheesecake; petit gateaux sakura; dango, sakura scones and Hokkaido milk ice cream. All go exceptionally well with specially crafted Sakura Mariage Freres tea, fresh-brewed illy coffee or a glass of something chilled and sparkling.
Sakura Afternoon Tea is available daily from 1 April to 30 June 2020, 14:00 to 17:00 at Up & Above Bar. Priced from Baht 1,400++ inclusive of illy coffee, premium Mariage Frères or Saro tea for two persons.
