Serving up afternoon treat for fashionistas
The Sunday Independent 18 May 2014
Forget all that Sex and the City cupcake nonsense, real fashionistas know it's all about the Prêt-à-Portea in The Berkeley, Knightsbridge, London, where high fashion meets high tea (and they said it would never happen!).
With the Prêt-à-Portea summer collection 2014 you can purchase a Miu Miu exotic-skin tote bag, a Christian Louboutin Pigalle spike heel (with signature red sole), and several other designer goodies and still have change out of a £50 (€61) note.
OK so they're all pastry but in the age of social media food porn, your Tweet 'n' Eat will have friends, fashionistas and food lovers glowing green. Talk about having your cake.
Prêt-à-Portea at The Berkeley, daily 1-6pm, £41 (€50) per person (includes miniature savouries, sandwiches and tasters). To make a reservation for Prêt-à-Portea call 004420 7235 6000 or check www.the-berkeley.co.uk.

'I'd like to play the Doctor when I grow up as all the actors will be dead by then – I want to act like David Tennant'

Jack Scanlon: 'My friends say I look really smart.'
Doctor Who is my favourite TV programme. I'm not scared of it. I've got loads of Doctor Who toys – I've got a Doctor Who bouncy ball, I've got the Tardis, and another Tardis that speaks. I'm the Doctor's number one fan.
I started dressing up as the Doctor a long time ago, when I was four. The 10th Doctor [David Tennant] is my best doctor. I like his coat, because it's like a cape, and I like his suit, because it's all nice and stripy, and his tie and shirt and his messy hair – it's just really good. And his shoes are good for running, so he's really fast. I'm a really good runner. He's really smart, and my friends say I look really smart, too. They don't dress like the Doctor because they haven't got a suit like me.
On Saturday mornings I go to drama at the Henley Children's Theatre Group. I'd like to play the Doctor when I grow up as all the actors will be dead by then. I want to act like David Tennant. At drama group, we dance and play games. I'm the best at dancing. I'm going to be a bean in the Jack And The Beanstalk panto.
After drama class, I go to the park with my mummy or shopping. My favourite shop is the Doctor Who Experience shop in Cardiff. Mummy took me in the summer as a reward for getting a good school report. And just being good.
