Choices By DL Afternoon Tea at Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam Jewels to Feast On
AMSTERDAM - Jewels to feast on: How tempting does that sound? The autumnal Afternoon Tea at Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam, is inspired by the Choices By DL jewelry collection from Debora Leeser. Nothing is what it seems in this stunning Afternoon Tea, modeled on Leeser´s colorful precious stones, rings and earrings. Patissier Vipin Charly and Executive Sous Chef Tomas Bron could really let their talents loose on developing elegant, sweet and savory creations. These gleaming jewels look deceptively real, the chocolates and bonbons are exact replicas of original gemstones. The unique delicacies of the Choices By DL Afternoon Tea will be served daily from 15.00 – 17.00 until the end of November, and Friday through Sunday you can enjoy the accompanying live piano music. Priced at 52.50 euro p.p., it includes golden caramel tea, a sparkling glass of champagne, and a goody bag.

Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam has acquired a reputation for unrivaled creativity in its themed Afternoon Tea. For the new autumn tea a partnership has been established with jewelry brand Choices By DL from Debora Leeser: ¨This is a perfect match, where love and respect for high-quality, creative artisanship blend together¨ said the jewelry designer over the unusual collaboration. After sampling the edible jewels, guests who are interested in the real gems and jewelry can arrange an appointment, via the conciërge of Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam, at Gassan Diamonds where the Choices By DL collection is produced and presented.
Once again it was a challenging step for the team of chefs to produce refined patisserie, that translates humble ice creams from edible beach treats into mouth watering jewels. Executive Sous Chef Tomas Bron: ¨We always want to exceed expectations with our creative items. It was a wonderfully inspiring process to reproduce the gorgeous jewelry collection as closely as possible and at the same time, for every creation, design a refined, complementary flavor for the patisserie.¨ The Choices By DL Afternoon Tea includes, among other savory delights, a cornet with tuna, wasabi and furikake; a tartlet with chicken liver and red pepper; an egg and truffle sandwich; and delicious sweets in the form of a champagne and raspberry pearl, coconut and blueberry profiterole, a fig and honey madeleine, a financier of tangerine and pure chocolate, mixed berry cupcakes with violets, and golden lemon meringue tart.

Choices by DL
Mix and match any way you like! For Choices By DL everything revolves around the question: Why should one single item suffice when there are so many to choose from? This refreshing, unique and patented concept is a creation of Debora Huisman-Leeser, the fourth generation in a line of professional diamond merchants and jewelry makers. She decided that choosing one style alone was an outdated approach. Everything revolves around flexibility now. The power of Choices By DL is to be found in the accessibility of the jewelry line, through which a personal jewelry wardrobe - the ´jewelry wardrobe in a box’- can be mixed and matched with the chosen outfit of the moment. Using a simple system it is possible to adjust the jewelry and in a fraction of a second to adapt it, without any concession to the quality of design.
