The Weekend Australian - Travel - - Destination Europe - SU­SAN KURO­SAWA

FANCY a white rab­bit’s pocket watch — that is, a blue­berry mac­aron with a dial that mim­ics the Sydney GPO clock as well as the time­piece of the Alice in Won­der­land char­ac­ter? Or how about a choc mud­cake styled as a top hat or a crab­meat sand­wich rolled in cu­cum­ber? The Westin Sydney has launched a Mad Hat­ter af­ter­noon tea that de­con­structs the tra­di­tional con­cept with great fun. Even the jams with the (prop­erly warmed) scones come with a twist — one is a blend of rasp­berry and choco­late. For purists, there’s a Her­itage tea, in­clud­ing a knock­out creme brulee. Served in the ho­tel’s Lobby Bar, Lounge and Room by white­gloved wait­ers from 12pm-6pm. From $45; book­ings es­sen­tial. More: (02) 8223 1197.
