Third Pret-A-Portea Series with Charriol at Raffles Makati  

Raffles Makati collaborates with Swiss luxe brand Charriol to launch its third Prêt-à-Portea series at the Writers Bar.  Confectionery connoisseurs can enjoy this classically designed afternoon tea until March 31. Available from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. at P1,500+ for two, indulge in the taste of Tropézien as high tea is inspired by the timeless timepiece of Charriol St. Tropez 35. Paired with a preferred tea of choice, start off with a medley of savory teacup sandwiches, such as the mini-club sandwich Riviera, Pisaladiere, and melt-in-your-mouth focaccia Caprese, to name a few. The French pastries include a three-tier collection of scones, Tarte Tropezienne with lemon mousseline, chocolate hazelnut éclairs, and plush pink-berry tartlet mascarpone. The highlight of the day is blackcurrant macarons dipped in silver and gold, along with white-chocolate lemon cake in tribute to Charriol’s shimmering lunar mood.  Add a glass of rosé champagne at P1,000+ for a sparkling afternoon.
