It’s been more than 150 years since the 7th Duchess of Bedford shared her wayward secret of enjoying tea and snacks a few hours before dinner. Now, fast forward to 2021.
Holy Carrot, the beloved plant-based restaurant in the Knightsbridge neighborhood of London is partnering with Amelia Windsor to create a new and exclusive Afternoon Tea. This special collaboration launched on Tuesday, November 2nd.
Amelia Windsor is a contributing editor at Tatler magazine, and a model committed to sustainable causes. Holy Carrot’s Head Chef Elena Savchuck has taken inspiration from the classic British afternoon tea. Chef Savchuck has added touches from Amelia to create a fun and unique twist to the menu.
Holy Carrot x Amelia Windsor Afternoon Tea Menu
Guests will enjoy afternoon tea in one of London’s most charming and luxurious locations.
The menu features both sweet and savory plant-based, glute-free and refined sugar free bites.
Add an extra touch of luxury with a glass of Piper-Heidsieck Essentiel Extra Brut champagne or a newly created vodka gimlet. The vodka gimlet includes a blend of vodka, rosemary and cucumber.

There is also a wide selection of savory bites. These include Smoked “Salmon” Carrot Sandwich; Purple Potato Croquette; Crostini with “Crab” Salad; and Raw Avocado on Toast with Radish.
