Winter Afternoon Tea with Wedgwood at The Grand Hotel Birmingham
Wednesday 2nd November will see the launch of Winter Afternoon Tea presented on the Wedgwood Gio Gold Collection at The Grand Hotel, Birmingham. There is great synergy in this collaboration as both Wedgwood and The Grand Hotel embrace the art of entertaining on an iconic and individual level.
Adam Bateman, Culinary Director at The Grand has worked closely with Wedgwood to create the perfect partnership to elevate his new Winter Afternoon Tea menu to a luxurious new level.
Adam recently visited the Wedgwood factory in Stoke-on-Trent to forge a collaboration with one of the oldest potteries in the UK. To this end, Madeleine Bar at The Grand Hotel, Birmingham was appointed as the perfect backdrop for the Wedgwood Gio Gold collection, enhanced even further when decorated with mouth-watering sweets and treats in a brand-new Winter Afternoon Tea available until the end of January.
“Launching our Winter Afternoon Tea on Wedgwood’s Gio Gold range was the perfect partnership. A stunning range of tableware, complementary of Madeleine Bar, on which to present our Winter Afternoon Tea. This is also a great opportunity for my talented pastry team to showcase their chocolate and patisserie skills and enjoy a bit of creative culinary fun. It is also an incredible opportunity to work with a world-renowned brand like Wedgwood and partner with them at The Grand to launch our new Winter Afternoon Tea menu.”
Chris Bend, Head of Hospitality Sales at Wedgwood is delighted to be working with Adam to showcase the Wedgwood Gio Gold Afternoon Tea range.
He considers this partnership to be a fantastic way to welcome the changing season, celebrating winter flavours and produce, while adding a festive gold touch to a delicious afternoon tea menu devised by Adam and the culinary team at The Grand Hotel, Birmingham, he said
“The Gio Gold range is stunning, comprising of everything you would need for the ultimate Afternoon Tea experience including a beautiful tea pot, dainty cups and saucers, stylish side plates, milk jug and sugar bowl. We have thoroughly thought every element through for the perfect guest experience – this is a truly fantastic collaboration.”
