Pastry Chef Gabriella Harianto shares with us The Langham, Sydney scone recipe.

Afternoon Tea at The Langham, Sydney, is famed as the birthplace of the traditional Afternoon Tea, direct from their London flagship hotel.

Served at Kitchens on Kent in their Harbour Room, guests are offered an exclusive experience, including The Langham’s signature warm scones with jam and cream, delicate finger sandwiches and a selection of British inspired sweet and savoury delights. Pair it with a delightful selection of loose-leaf teas or Champagne, for the ultimate celebration.
