The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa is turning its popular ‘Tea by the Sea’ High Tea into a chocolate feast this winter that is sure to impress even the biggest chocoholics.

For the perfect winter indulgence, the new ‘Chocolate Tea by the Sea’ will be available throughout May, June and July 2014. Living up to its name, it will take on a decidedly chocolaty theme, with Pastry Chef Nathan Jacobs creating a choc-tastic menu even Willy Wonka, the eccentric chocolatier of Roald Dahl’s popular children’s book ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’, would be proud of!

From chocolate cupcakes with lime buttercream and Orange & chocolate macaroons, to Chocolate crémeux and Chocolate brownies, fans of the delectable cocoa bean will be transported into sugary heaven.

A selection of delicate finger sandwiches, including Salmon and dill cream cheese, Chicken mayonnaise crumbed with crushed almonds, and Rare roast beef with horseradish cream, as well as the traditional Egg mayonnaise and Cheese and tomato varieties, will provide a welcome savoury contrast to the sweet temptations, while Almond frangipane, Vanilla panna cotta, Shortbread, Cream puffs and of course freshly baked Scones with cream round off the sweet offering. Guests will be able to enjoy these sweet and savoury treats together with the finest selection of fragrant teas and coffees, or a cup of steaming hot chocolate!

The perfect treat for a group of friends or family, the Chocolate Tea by the Sea will be available from Thursday 1 May – Thursday 31 July 2014. It is priced at R160 per person and will be served daily in The Leopard Bar, Conservatory and Café Grill between 14h00 and 18h00. Contact restaurant reservations on 021 437 9029 or to book.
