Prêt-a-Portea is the ultimate mix of fashion and high tea created by London’s Berkeley Hotel. Each season they create exclusive pastry and cake collections inspired by latest catwalk designs. This book celebrates Prêt a Portea’s tenth anniversary with 20 of their greatest hits, including bakes inspired by DVF, Dolce & Gabbana, Moschino and Jimmy Choo.

Each recipe is beautifully photographed and accompanied by a quote from the designer and a catwalk image that inspired the Berkeley’s sugary creation. The book also features suggestions for matching fine teas with the cakes and the Berkeley’s own tea etiquette tips accompany the recipes.

If you love fashion, baking or both, you will love making everything from Burberry Trench Biscuits to Anya Hindmarch Cake Bags.
