The Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre’s inspired high tea has won gold at the Dilmah Real High Tea Challenge in Sydney.
The Centre was one of only two venues to be given a gold award after brewing up a storm against some of the city’s best-known high tea establishments in last week’s New South Wales challenge.
Centre Chief Executive Ton van Amerongen said the Centre prided itself on the high tea served in its waterfront Bayside Lounge, which was recently ranked one of Sydney’s top 10 high tea offerings by Time Out magazine.
“It’s wonderful to see our culinary team’s creativity and flair earn them gold in this competition,” Mr van Amerongen said.
Centre Executive Chef Uwe Habermehl and Sommelier William Wilson created a delicious high tea for the Challenge, consisting of four different Dilmah tea drinks and a range of sweet and savoury offerings, such as peach tea and pumpkin macaron with leatherwood honey filling, served with Dilmah Berry Sensation iced tea made with sparkling rain water.
