Karen Walker’s eccentrically elegant style has established a stellar international following for her ready-to-wear, eyewear, jewellery, bags and fragrance. Stepping up to complete the circle comes Karen Walker Atelier – an expansive, bespoke collection of wedding day jewellery and outfits, all made specifically for, and in consultation with the client by appointment.

‘’We are thrilled to be partnering with world-renowned Karen Walker on this unique collaboration and our debut designer High Tea by Cordis, which will provide a bespoke and elegant experience for our guests. Our guests will be treated to a one-of-a-kind sensory experience,” commented Alex Blanco, Director of Marketing.

Karen Walker says, “I’ve always loved a grand hotel high tea whether it be in London, New York or right here in Auckland and I’m so excited about how Chef Volker’s brought his creativity to this High Tea by Cordis menu celebrating our Atelier collection.”

From Monday 19 August – Saturday 8 September, guests will be able to experience the Karen Walker High Tea by Cordis. The menu has been carefully curated by Executive Chef Volker Marecek and his pastry team. The savoury menu includes a tasty fermented orange, whipped ricotta, walnut butter and radicchio salad, and a carrot explosion on Swiss chard. This is followed by delicate sandwiches filled with cured egg, cured cucumber and Champagne ham. The sweet menu is indulgent cherry and white chocolate mousse, chocolate brownie and peanut butter and dark chocolate ganache tart, caramel mousse dome to name a few.

“Designing the menu with Karen Walker Atelier jewellery in mind has been a great opportunity to explore unique flavours, shapes and colours. Every item is inspired by, and named after, rings in the collection and are all crafted in-house, using only sustainable and locally sourced ingredients that sing with flavour,” adds Executive Chef, Volker Marecek.

For something extra special to conclude the high tea experience, guests will be presented with the Runaway Flowerpot – made with smoky chocolate honey ganache, mandarin cardamom curd, guava dome and warm spiced crisps. The ingredients are inspired by the smoky, warm spices and cardamom notes of Karen Walker’s Runaway Azure Eau de Parfum     

The Karen Walker High Tea by Cordis is available from $59 per adult and $38 per child during the week, $69 per adult and $48 per child during the weekend and public holidays. Bookings are essential. Guests can enjoy High Tea by Cordis with tea or take things up a notch with a flute of Champagne.
