Go with a girlfriend and pay just Dhs495 (that’s Dhs247.5 per person) or go solo and pay just Dhs275. Both prices include the cost of the workshop.

Bulgarian chef, food writer, television personality and restaurateur, Silvena Rowe has curated the afternoon tea that deviates from the standard fare of cucumber and egg sandwiches.

Instead, you can delight in delicates like black truffle scented soft cheese muffin and zaatar beetroot cured salmon served with creamy ricotta. 


On a sweeter front, there’s an array of lavish sugary treats with a unique selection of mini cakes and sweets, including crispy walnut baklava, white chocolate with cardamom mousse and saffron rice pudding.
