Traditionally, the festive season is a time to relax and get into the spirit of joy. Celebrity chef Farah Quinn has teamed up with Peacock Lounge at Fairmont Jakarta to create a special festive afternoon tea set that can be enjoyed by the guests - especially on the windy, rainy days that are prevalent in Jakarta at the moment.
The Around-The-World Festive Afternoon Tea by Farah Quinn in collaboration with Fairmont Jakarta’s pastry chef Farid was inspired by her passion for all things pastry and delicacies she encountered during her travels to places all around the world - and also her hometown Bengkulu in Sumatra. The afternoon tea set features sixteen different mouth-watering mini delights, as Farah takes her guests on a culinary journey.
The creations include the New Zealand Pavlova, a meringue-based dessert with a crisp crust and soft light inside, topped with fresh raspberry compote. Popular in Spain and throughout Latin America, The South American Alfajores, a traditional shortbread cookies with dulce de leche filling, will be also available.
A cake from Bengkulu – a pineapple pie called Kue Bay Tat - is Farah’s own creation. Mexico’s Churros with Chocolate Dipping Sauce add further sweetness to the set, while other treats include Sweet Potato Pie, a Japanese Green Tea and Ogura Roll Cake, South African Malva Pudding with Vanilla Sauce, Mandarin Orange Chocolate Cake as well as a Georgian honey-layered cake called Medovik.
On the savory side, Farah has worked with Fairmont Jakarta’s Executive Chef Edi Pancamala to create Salmon Cake with Horseradish Cream, French Foie Gras Cromesquis, and her Christmas must-have item, Turkey Vol au Vent with Fresh Herbs.
The afternoon tea set also includes Peacock Lounge’s fruit tartlets, Farah’s all-time favorite sandwiches and warm homemade scones.
The Around-The-World Festive Afternoon Tea by Farah Quinn is available at Peacock Lounge from 6 December 2017 to 5 January 2018, daily from 1 to 5 PM at IDR 588,000++/ set that includes two cups of eggnog with gingerbread cookies as the welcome drink. The set also includes two cups of fresh-brewed coffee or premium tea selection to complement the afternoon tea experience.
