If you are looking for a fashionable afternoon out and a gourmet journey, the Giuseppe Zanotti Afternoon Tea set will get you covered.

Giuseppe Zanotti’s FW2019 collection reveals sophisticated and cosmopolitan women and men, elegant but with a rocker’s soul. The immediate perception of chaos is intentional, developed through a researched disharmony of shapes and colors. The aesthetics represents a complex order, a bold but moderate mix, able to gather and blend impulses, themes and trends.

Executive Pastry Chef Richard Long and his team reinterpreted Giuseppe Zanotti’s “sensually chaotic” aesthetics and translated the luxury brand’s design DNA into delectable gourmet items.

“Designing the afternoon tea set is both a challenging and exciting exercise for my team,” says Chef Richard.

‘“The creative synergy we generate between fashion and culinary arts is sensory provoking. We have also incorporated ingredients such as pistachio and hazelnut to reflect Giuseppe Zanotti’s Italian roots,” he continued.

The tea set which includes six sweet delights and four savory bites reflecting both the “graphic and geometric” as well as the “textured and exotic” themes from Giuseppe Zanotti’s latest collection.

The delicate Mascarpone Raspberry Tart, for example, reinterprets the elegant floral motif of Giuseppe Zanotti FLEUR heels in culinary art. The flavorful raspberry adds a refreshing balance to the sweet delight.

Giuseppe Zanotti’s signature AMABEL BOW heels inspired the Apricot Basil Cake. The eye-catching cake features basil-infused apricot cream, apricot confit and almond crémeux all topped with a chocolate art butterfly.

Indulge your palate with the tantalizing Pistachio Moscato Tart with a nutty-flavored base topped with edible flower jelly which highlights Giuseppe Zanotti’s Italian heritage.
