This October, The Fullerton Hotel Singapore and The Fullerton Bay Hotel Singapore will present curated Pink Afternoon Tea 2022 sets in support of the Breast Cancer Foundation’s (BCF) dedication to raising awareness, promoting early detection of breast cancer and supporting those affected by it in Singapore.
Held in conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness Month from 3 to 31 October 2022, S$5 nett from the proceeds of each adult-priced set will be donated to BCF. Both sets are pink-themed editions of the signature offerings: the Traditional Afternoon Tea served at The Courtyard, located at The Fullerton Hotel Singapore, and the Expressions Afternoon Tea served at The Landing Point, located at The Fullerton Bay Hotel Singapore, with the addition of a complimentary pink-themed cocktail.
“Since 2017, The Fullerton Hotels Singapore have supported Breast Cancer Foundation’s mission with the annual Pink Afternoon Tea. We appreciate that our guests have been warmly supportive of this initiative over the years, and we hope to continue contributing meaningfully to the community, by growing awareness and raising funds for the cause,” said Gino Tan, Country General Manager of The Fullerton Hotels and Resorts.
Presented by Executive Pastry Chef Siddharth Prabhu, the Pink Afternoon Tea sets take inspiration from the iconic Pink Ribbon, a symbol of the foundation’s mission. Guests can enjoy rosy treats that taste as lovely as they look — for a good cause — and complete the occasion with a complimentary glass of the specially concocted ‘Iron Rose’ cocktail.
Pink Afternoon Tea at The Courtyard and The Landing Point
Elegantly presented on three tiers, the Pink Afternoon Tea set at The Courtyard comprises classic English afternoon tea staples, laced with shades of pink. From Thursday to Sunday, a harpist enchants the high-ceiling atrium with graceful melodies.
The menu includes a round of storied teatime staples, from the simple yet elegant cucumber sandwich, reimagined with pastel pink mulberry cream cheese, to the distinctive Battenberg Cake — a quintessentially English dessert, created in 1884 as the royal wedding cake for Princess Victoria, granddaughter of Queen Victoria, and her husband Prince Louis of the Battenberg family.
Handcrafted daily, the assortment is presented alongside freshly baked scones with clotted cream and jam, paired with a selection of curated loose-leaf TWG teas and a variety of coffees from Bacha Coffee.
At The Landing Point, the selection is reminiscent of Nature’s wild and diverse flora. Adorned with a flourish of edible flowers, the pastries are served on a custom-made tray and stand out distinctly against the glossy-black tray base — drawing one’s eye to the treats that await.
The savoury line-up awakens one’s taste buds from the late-afternoon lull. Taking reference from the modern Asian cuisine with Western influences, the rich flavours range from seared tuna tataki with pickled ginger and shio kombu powder, to duck rillettes and smoked duck from Les Landes in the south of France.
For dessert, Executive Pastry Chef Prabhu’s creations tell a tale of nostalgia and a return to one’s unique roots. Heritage-inspired treats include the ‘Egg Kaya Toast’, ‘Ice Gem Lemon Tart’ and ‘Nyonya Trifle’. The teatime repast is rounded off with freshly baked scones, clotted cream and jam, alongside a selection of curated loose leaf TWG teas and a variety of coffees from Bacha Coffee. Guests can enjoy the experience with live piano music daily.
For an extra touch of sparkle to the afternoon interlude, each adult-priced set will be served with a complimentary glass of Iron Rose cocktail (priced at S$22*). Specially concocted for the occasion, the alluring blend combines rose gin, litchi liqueur, rose liqueur and Mediterranean tonic — yielding the distinctive sweetness of rose and subtle lychee notes, carried on a refreshing wave of fizz.
In a show of support for efforts to raise breast cancer awareness, the façade of The Fullerton Hotel Singapore will also be lit up in pink daily from 3 to 31 October 2022, from 7.00 p.m. onwards.
