Relax beneath the glow of the Baccarat Chandelier and sample a range of delicious Afternoon Tea cakes, pastries and sandwiches inspired by the elegance of Swan Lake. Nibble on “Odette”, a delicate white chocolate mousse filled with mulled wine infused plums, and delight in the lightness of a “Pirouette”, a choux pastry with cranberry compote and an orange macaroon.
