If you’re traveling for a foodie event, check with the organizers to be certain it’s still scheduled. It’s probably been canceled, and you should be “sheltering in place” anyway.

Buzz! Buzz! Afternoon Bee!

england_london_chesterfield-bee-teaWhen we hear the buzz of honeybees, we know summer has arrived. It’s well documented how important bees are to everyday life and research has shown that one in three mouthfuls of the food we eat is dependent on pollination.

The British Beekeepers Association says that bees fly about 55,000 miles to make just one pound of honey?

To celebrate the arrival of summer and indeed bees, Ben Kelliher, executive chef at the Chesterfield Mayfair, 35 Charles Street, Mayfair, London, England, has created a new afternoon tea titled ‘Afternoon Bee’ – inspired by the 60,000 bees that live in the hives on the rooftop of hotel and from the flowers that these bees find as they forage the city.

To start the ‘Afternoon Bee,’ guests are offered iced mint tea. Then, a selection of finger sandwiches are accompanied by sweet treats including baked scones served with jams, honey and clotted cream. On offer are 16 loose leaf teas.

‘Afternoon Bee’ treats include a carrot cupcake topped with ginger and honey cream and dusted with pollen and rosemary and honey macaroons with chocolate ganache.

‘Afternoon Bee’ is served daily through September 28, 2014; reservations are required.

The Chesterfield Mayfair is a member of The Red Carnation Hotel Collection, a collection of five- and four-star family-run boutique hotels in London, Dorset, Guernsey, Geneva, Palm Beach, South Africa and Ireland.
