I’ve been getting into the festive spirit over the past few weeks thanks to visits to hotels showcasing their winter fare, such as the  Sheraton Grand London Park Lane, which has teamed up with French pâtissier and celebrity chef Eric Lanlard to bring a Chocolate Box Winter Terrace this season. Details of this can be found on the news pages as well as an array of festive afternoon teas, which all look delicious!

Elsewhere in this issue, we catch up with cover-girl Sarah Frankland, who is head pastry chef at Pennyhill Park Hotel. Her afternoon tea was the overall winner at Hotel Food and Beverage’s Afternoon Tea of the Year awards back in June, so it was great to catch up with her to see what she’s been working on. 

In this issue, we’re also bringing you the results of some hot beverage research we carried out with independent hotels in association with Evoca Group and Tetley. Head to page 22 for all the results.

Have a great Christmas and see you in the New Year!
