It’s usually thought of as a haven for shopping and celebrities, but Mayfair can also be a heaven for foodies. There’s so much to see, do and try in the area. Whether you’re a budding chef, keen baker, or simply looking for a tasty meal in the middle of the busy city.
A classic afternoon tea.
First and foremost, no trip to Mayfair would be complete without a classic afternoon tea. A local rite of passage with all of the scones, cakes, sandwiches and pastries you can eat. Try The Chesterfield, which offers a chocolate lovers’ tea perfect for particularly sweet teeth. Or The Washington Mayfair, where you can upgrade to an afternoon tea that includes Piper Heidsieck champagne.
A must try for any food fans.
For those who want to get a bit more hands on, prestigious hotel Claridges offers master classes in a range of culinary classics. From vegetarian cooking to British puddings and even a traditional Sunday roast. “Designed to share the expertise and experience, the secrets and skills of key members of the Claridge’s team”. The master classes are a must try for any food fans visiting the area. Corrigan’s Mayfair also offer day package cookery classes with the chefs at their popular restaurant.
Some really excellent food.
Of course, there are times when you just want to be served some really excellent food without the effort of making it yourself. Thankfully, Mayfair has a variety of restaurants and cafes to satisfy even the most unusual of tastes. L’Autre Polish Mexican Bistro on Shepherd Street, for instance, couples two unlikely cuisines with astonishingly delicious results. The pierogi (Polish dumplings) frequently get rave reviews from happy customers!
For a culinary experience you’ll never forget, pay a trip to Mayfair and sample the delights of this diverse and delicious district.
