A Fuse of Modern Yum Cha & Fusion High Tea

Spring has sprung and with it thoughts of eating outside. And there can be no more beautiful a setting to experience sun twinkling on the water and people out enjoying themselve than at Albert Park Lake.

To celebrate the blossoming of spring, Sun Kitchen Executive Chef Chan Kwok invited Gault & Millau Pastry Chef of the Year 2018 Chef Jo Ward to collaborate on developing a contemporary High Tea concept.

The result is a stunning and unusual high tea. It includes a delicate selection of Chef Chan's modern yum cha, and then a medley of Chef Ward's whimsical fusion desserts.

The crowning glory is an edible black swan, made from milk chocolate and charcoal – a tribute to the black swans that dines can see from the balcony at Albert Park Lake.

You will probably be able to see this season's baby goslings frolicking not far away. This "East Meet West" culinary partnership has created the newest fashionista-foodie experience, and one previously never experienced in Melbourne.

This remarkable high tea is only available on Saturdays & Sundays throughout November and only between 1PM - 4PM. It also happens in the spring sunshine (fingers-crossed) on an outdoor deck, nestled in the picturesque nature of Albert Park Lake.
