High Fashion Goes Deliciously High-Calorie at London’s Berkeley Hotel
December 5, 2008By: K. Clare Johnson
Fashion and food aren't often put together (do models even eat?), but The Berkeley has found a delicious way to be part of London's all-important fashion scene, as we've reported before on The Informed Traveler. The Berkeley Now the International Herald Tribune has a fascinating article about how high tea has gone haute cuisine at The Berkeley.

The London luxury hotel dishes up edible versions of designer collections at its fashionable high tea. The confectionery delights, which are updated every six months, include a chocolate cookie Valentino red coat, complete with gold buttons; and a yellow handbag made of banana sponge cake and adorned with a gold leaf clasp. If you'd like to indulge in some sartorial cuisine, be advised that you should book at least a month ahead of time, and expect to stay at least two hours.
