If you’ve been looking for an appropriately stately way to mark the end of Asian Heritage Month, look no further—the special-edition Afternoon Tea tower from the Four Seasons Hotel Toronto and Aburi Hana, adorned with all manner of sweet and savoury delights, is the perfect culmination to the event.
Available from May 28 to 30, the tower will feature 10 new items created in collaboration by the culinary teams of Four Seasons Hotel Toronto and Yorkville’s modern kyō-kaiseki spot, Aburi Hana. The afternoon tea “showcases the sophistication and intricacy of Japanese cuisine paired with French flair,” says Four Seasons sous chef Horacio Macias Leon.
For the collaboration, Macias Leon and pastry sous chef Kevin Levionnois worked with Aburi Hana’s executive chef Ryusuke Nakagawa and executive pastry chef Aiko Uchigoshi, on a unique menu of elegant and unique bites.
“We are delighted to collaborate with the esteemed culinary team at Four Seasons Hotel Toronto,” says chef Ryusuke. “We are proud to share a part of Japanese culture in a meaningful and delicious way with Torontonians in recognition of Asian Heritage Month.”
Fans of the hotel’s classic tea can expect the same level of creativity and precision—along with bold flavours delivered in tiny packages—from the special-edition set. The menu includes a stunning selection of five savoury and five sweet items, along with plain and hojicha scones. The first bite highlights include a white asparagus brûlée tartelette, bamboo shoots and scallop tempura, and a sushi rice cracker with Wagyu charcoal-grilled tartar.
Anyone with a sweet tooth will rejoice with a delicate strawberry French roll, waguri Mont-Blanc, and yomogi raspberry macaron. Each Afternoon Tea tower also includes a 'Pinkies Up!' kit from TEALEAVES, with individually wrapped pyramid teabags in Organic English Breakfast and Organic Earl Grey with Lavender.
The special collaboration tea tower is $90 per person and must be ordered 24 hours in advance for pickup at Four Seasons Hotel, located at 60 Yorkville Avenue. Showcasing an abundance of Asian ingredients and flavours, you’ll want to secure this special set before it sells out, and celebrate Asian Heritage Month in style.
