10 years of The Berkeley’s Prêt-à-Portea sees head pastry chef launch new recipe book


It’s been 10 years since The Berkeley first launched its innovative afternoon tea offering, Prêt-à-Portea to coincide with Fashion Week, and to celebrate, the hotel has released its own recipe book.

The luxury London hotel tapped into the trend for afternoon with a twist in 2006 and each season when London Fashion Week comes to the city, head pastry chef Mourad Khait will knock up a batch of sweet treats and delights with a decadent designer theme.

This year, he has created Prêt-à-Portea: High-fashion cakes and cookies, which will showcase over 20 secret recipes and baking techniques from Khiat.

Each one has been inspired by key fashion styles from the world’s leading designers over the past 10 years.

The bakes follow spring/summer and autumn/winter collections each season, taking inspiration from names such as Valentino, Stella McCartney, Prada and Diane von Furstenberg, and will aim to encourage guests and future guests of the hotel to get taste their own chic designer bakes.
