High Tea

Fowey Hall

FOWEY, CORNWALL: I have always loved the great English tradition of high tea, and today I am enjoying it with a view to match. On the terrace of Fowey Hall, perched high above the small Cornish fishing village of Fowey, they serve a delicious cream tea, cucumber and salmon sandwiches, little tarts and freshly baked scones with clotted cream and homemade strawberry jam. Fowey Hall is one of my favourite hotels in Cornwall, set in a beautiful 19th century mansion and surrounded by sprawling gardens. Pine trees frame the view of the whitewashed houses and the boats bobbing in the harbour – it’s a panorama that always reminds me of the Amalfi Coast in Italy.

MUNICH

When in Munich my
favorite store to look
for the best selection
of clothes is THERESA.
The staff is competent
and always has the
best ideas for styling
