Belmond Mount Nelson provides a mouthwatering array of sweet and savoury delicacies to enjoy with your friends or family. Executive Chef Rudi Liebenberg and Pastry Chef Craig Hibbert have put together a stunning selection of their best-loved Afternoon Tea classics which will be delivered to your front door, along with freshly baked scones, homemade mixed berry jam and cream. In addition, tea sommeliers have been selected to complement your treats.
The savoury selection offers much-loved mushroom empanadas; pasture-reared roasted beef roll with homemade tomato chutney; delicate finger sandwiches filled with egg mayonnaise, classic cucumber, and smoked trout; chicken curry petit pastries, and mini spinach and feta quiches.
Those with a sweet tooth are in for a treat with the opera cake which comes with layers of soft creamy coffee and almond crunch; pillowy vanilla eclairs, traditional melktert with classic Cape Malay cinnamon and cardamom flavours, and a citrus and white chocolate delice, which Pastry Chef Craig Hibbert claims “gives you pleasure and delicacy in equal measures.”
The Mount Nelson Afternoon Tea in your Living Room is available every Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 4pm. The cost for the teas and the sweet and savoury treats are R340 per person, with a R45 delivery charge to the City Bowl and Atlantic Seaboard area.
For every Afternoon Tea ordered, six hearty homemade soup meals will be donated to Extreem Kwizeen’s “Soupathon” for the homeless.
