Roger Vivier Afternoon Tea @ Lounge on the Park, Mandarin Oriental KL

They say if the shoe fits, wear it... well, the good people at Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur and Roger Vivier say "EAT IT!"

From now until 30 June 2016, Mandarin Oriental KL's new Executive Pastry Chef Claus Olsen and his team presents Malaysia's first Roger Vivier Afternoon Tea. Inspired by Roger Vivier and his legendary designs, the afternoon tea is priced at RM108 nett per stand and is available daily from 2.30pm until 6.00pm at Lounge on the Park.




Roger Vivier is best known for his creation of the first stiletto heel in the 1950s. He designed extravagant richly-decorated shoes that he described as sculptures, and hence was often hailed as the "Fragonard of the shoe" and his shoes "the Faberge of Footwear". 

His iconic designs include the Trumpet, Pilgrim pumps with silver buckles as well as his Prismick bag featuring bold, colorful and unique geometric designs. Taking the three iconic designs into account, Chef Claus Olsen has successfully created a stylish yet delicious set showcasing the exquisite details that best represent the brand. 

The afternoon tea set is served in a three-tier set. Fashionistas will love the Iconic Handbag Butter Cake, Trumpet filled with lemon curd, chiffon and vanilla crumble, and the Buckle frosted Scottish shortbread, all immaculately prepared. Other pastries in the set include the strawberry shortcake with mascarpone cream, roasted pear and caramel milk jelly, pot de creme macaron and green tea milk choux.

Scones are served with clotted cream, orange marmalade, and strawberry & rose petal jam. Dainty sandwiches such as Cream cheese sandwich with carrot and cucumber pickles, Beetroot gravlax with sour cream and salmon roe on multi grain bread and Truffle-chicken salad and asparagus in a mini croissant. Guests can choose from a selection of TWG tea to pair with their afternoon tea; I chose the Lemon Bush Tea while Hubby had the Imperial Lapsang Souchong.





This is one of Chef Claus Olsen's first projects since joining Mandarin Oriental KL. Definitely an afternoon tea set worth indulging in!

Upon learning that I am a big macaron fan, Chef Claus Olsen promptly brought over a selection of his new macaron flavours, which he has recently introduced at the Mandarin Cake Shop. Amongst the flavours which we tried are salted pistachio, blueberry, butter chocolate, hazelnut, lemon, lychee rose, Elvis Presley and salted caramel. They all tasted amazing, especially the latter three flavours :) Impressed I was, and I can't wait to try more of this amazing chef's creations!

It's been a while since I had excellent macarons such as these ;) These are available for purchase from The Mandarin Cake Shop.
