Vogue High Tea – Langham Hotel

I have always been into food and desserts but before the food blog, there was MAKE UP! I was (still am) obsessed and friend use to tell me to start a make up blog, but then I realised I didn’t really like taking photos of my face all the time :P Anyhow, I’m a fan of fashion magazines because I love reading about the new trends and Vogue is one magazine I love flipping through. I always find their styles so timeless.

Vogue High Tea

Last week I received an email from Sascha from Liquid Ideas asking for my address because Langham wanted to send me a small gift. I was immediately intrigued and knew that it would be something sweet hehe and I was right! That same afternoon a courier arrived with a small white box and told me not to shake it. I gently placed it on to the table and started to opening and couldn’t help let out a little shriek when I saw the super cute cakes and Vogue eclairs! Such a sweet and thoughtful gift, I have never had any cakes delivered to my house ~ It totally made my day and I was smiling from one ear to the other.

Vogue High Tea Champagne

I was then invited to try the new Vogue High tea which is a collaboration between Vogue Australia and Langham Hotel in Melbourne to create a trendy and classy high tea in celebration of the spring races. Definitely could not say no as I have always like the high teas at the Langham ~ I asked Lianne to be my plus one because I knew she would appreciate it a lot more than say Mr Bao :P Most appropriately we started the event with a glass of Chandon champagne each.

Very quickly the Vogue high tea arrived, a very traditional afternoon set with ribbon sandwiches at the bottom – egg mayo, poached chicken, smoked salmon and cucumbers. Really appreciate the freshness of the sandwiches and egg and mayonnaise is still my favourite!

Scones - clotted cream, jam and butter

I really hope one day I will be able to make pretty looking scones like these. Last time I tried to make them they were fine flavour and texture wise but they definitely looked like huge volcano balls! These were freshly baked still warm to tough when we had them and served with clotted cream and strawberry jam ~

Now lets move on to my favourite part and that’s all the sweets on the top tier. I could seriously skip the other two (ok maybe not scones) but definitely forgo the sandwiches for some more macarons hehe ~ There’s a good selection of goodies – chocolate macaron, lace cookie, very vanilla cupcake, Vogue strawberry eclair, lamington bon bons and chocolate salted caramel popcorn tarts.

It’s hard to pick a favourite but it would have to the chocolate salted caramel popcorn mini tarts which had a little banana flavour through it. Another one that I liked was the Vogue strawberry eclairs I loved how small and dainty they were and the strawberry creme patisserie filling inside was lovely!  While the lace biscuits were so pretty and I could imagine how nice they will look at a wedding ~
Parisian Tea

Lianne also got a tea, and I recommended the Parisian tea that is quite popular I actually haven’t tried myself but heard it’s rather fruity and refreshing. She described that it had hints of vanilla, definitely going to have to try next time I go ~

Hot Chocolate

Hot Chocolate

While I got a hot chocolate which was nice, I would’ve liked it even more if it was thicker and more chocolatey.

I had a wonderful girly afternoon with Lianne and enjoyed working through the high tea set, I recommend skipping lunch or having a super small lunch before coming there’s definitely enough food for 2 or 3 ladies :) The Vogue high tea is now available from now until the 8th of November for $65 per head including a glass of Chandon and the latest Vogue magazine. Remember to book early especially for Melbourne cup day.

    Aww doesn’t everyone love a fancy high tea! I love that the courier told you not to shake the box! Did you? Just a little? lolol

    That does look like a very good high tea and so much better than the one I went to! I could tell immediately that your sandwiches were fresh and that there was a generous amount of filling. How lovely to receive a gift/invitation like that in the mail xx
