High-end Halloween

Rather than the ‘cheap and cheerful’ orange-frosted cupcakes, pumpkin-shaped biscuits and marshmallow ghosts, how are pastry chefs spooking up their menus?

Topics this should cover include:

  • What flavours, colours and themes are being used to convey the spookiness of Halloween with the refinement consumers have come to expect from a high-end afternoon tea and/or patisserie experience?
  • How are treats such as macarons, pastries, eclairs and scones given a spooky makeover?
  • How are chefs using the savoury menu items to embrace the theme?
  • Theatre and presentation are very much part of the afternoon tea experience. What can be done to add to the experience in this way?
