Belmond announces a special afternoon tea experience with Britain’s national treasure and Queen of Baking Mary Berry CBE, aboard Belmond British Pullman on Sunday, 5th February 2017. Travelling aboard the elegant vintage carriages from London Victoria Station, guests will travel with the doyenne of family cooking, as the train makes its way through the British countryside.
The menu includes some of Mary’s favourite cakes including Cherry and Almond tart, Strawberry Mille Feuille, Opera Slice and baked scones, made with her own personal recipe - all served by Belmond’s liveried stewards along with traditional tea and champagne. The elegant surroundings and comfort of the Art Deco 1920s carriages provide an intimate setting for guests to spend time with Mary hearing about her award-winning career whilst picking up some baking tips.
Author of over 80 best-selling cookery books, and with a TV career spanning more than six decades, Mary is one of the UK’s most loved culinary personalities.
