Christmas foodie events to book in London
Christmas is synonymous with food and feasting, but who wants to start the crackers and turkey too soon? We'd rather be making snaps, taking saunas, getting all pre-Revolutionary Russian with, or skating on top of a carpark with fondue at the ready. Here's our guide to where to have the most luxe and unusual festive foodie fun without the t-word (unless it is tikka style).
Scents of Christmas, Penhaligon’s Afternoon Tea at the Savoy
What should Christmas smell like? How about mulled pears, brandy mousse, gingerbread, chestnut and clementines? Teaming up with British perfume ouse Penhaligon's, The Savoy has created the 'Scents of Christmas' festive afternoon tea and high tea, cleverly incorporating all these ingredients into the headiest of brews.
To make the occasion even more luxe, add a cheeky glass of rare Louis Roederer vintage champagne 2009 for a treat worth its age.
Price: afternoon tea: £68.00 with champagne £120.00
