How do you like your eggs in the morning? With a diamond twist? This December, join Searcys for the ultimate luxury brunch
Forget the ordinary avocado on toast affair. This December, Searcys at The Gherkin are throwing four very special diamond brunches filled with extravagance.
The ultimate London day out, guests will sip on Dom Pérignon Champagne as they indulge in a stunning four-course brunch, overlooking the city from the top floor of one of London’s most iconic landmarks.
No ordinary meal, one lucky guest from each of the four Sunday brunches will also walk away with a genuine diamond worth £1,000 certified by Embee Jewels of London.
At the bottom of every glass of Dom Pérignon Vintage Blanc 2009 lies a sparkling stone, one of which is a real, full-cut brilliant diamond.
Once the bubbles have been sipped, Diamond Inspectors from The Embee Diamond Reception will be on hand to inspect the stones one by one and reveal the real diamond.
On the menu, plenty of treats await. Foodies can feast on pastries and artisan breads, butters and preserves, followed by a choice of smorgasbords such as homemade ricotta, heritage tomatoes, toasted pumpkin seedsor smoked salmon, super-seeded bread, pesto, spring onion, soured cream.
Hearty winter mains steal the show, with dishes such as bavette steak, red wine sauce with fried eggsatisfying even the most discerning diner. In keeping with the luxury of the occasion, traditional eggs Benedict, Florentine or Royalewill be topped with sustainable, organic Kasperskian caviar from the Swiss Rhône.
No diamond brunch could be complete without dessert – end the affair with delights such as freshly-made waffles with fruit compoteor, and a chocolate ganache tart with malt ice-cream and Guinness gel.
