On the occasion of the exhibition "Christian Dior, fashion designer of the dream" organized in the V & A Museum of London, the iconic Berkeley Hotel, known for its tea time inspired by fashion, offers a "Ready-to-Portea" whose theme is none other than Dior . Directly paying homage to the exhibition, Mourad Khiat , pastry chef of the place, turns the most iconic designs of the Avenue Montaigne house into shortbreads and ultra couture cakes. Mini cakes with the image of Miss Dior perfume, biscuits in the shape of blazers marked at the waist, sandblasted sling-back J'Adior or still lattes printed Dior ... the man reveals a snack almost too good to be eaten. Thus, if you are more red velvet cake, you can for example opt for a cake directly inspired Lady Dior bag version 1995, offered by the former first lady of France Bernadette Chirac to Lady Diana . But if you prefer chocolate mousse, opt for the revisited version of the mythical Miss Dior dress from 1949.
" It was important for me to respectfully reproduce Monsieur Dior's fairytale, timeless and iconic dresses using ingredients that best celebrate these opulent and beautiful creations ," said Mourad Khiat , Pastry Chef at Hotel Berkeley. " Seeing these exquisite clothes displayed in real life at the V & A Museum really makes me appreciate the detail and precision of these ingenious designs. "
The Berkeley Dior Ready-to-Portea Dior is served daily from 13:00 to 17:30 from £ 58 per person. All information can be found on the hotel website .
