It looks too good to eat, doesn’t it? This is Sotheby’s Surrealist Tea, concocted by the Sotheby’s Cafe as a cheeky marketing gimmick (albeit a tasty one) to promote their Surrealist Art evening sale on February 5 at New Bond Street.
The themed menu with a Dalí-esque melting
clock atop an Earl Grey cup cake, a tube of beetroot paint to
decorate your own pistachio and cheddar biscuit, marshmallow clouds
and, of course, a Magritte-inspired "This is not a biscuit"
For those who haven't yet sampled it, the
menu is only available until February 5.
What next for the sale-themed meal concept,
you wonder? They missed a trick with the Damien Hirst sale
though... spot macaroons, shark mayo sandwiches and, err,
formaldehyde tea anyone?
