Afternoon tea

England’s seventh Duchess of Bedford set the trend for afternoon tea in the late 18th century. Finding herself unable to last from breakfast to dinner, she plugged the gap with a cup of tea and slice of cake in her bedroom, an act that caught on after she subsequently invited friends to join her. Today it’s an indulgent celebration for those fortunate enough to have a spare afternoon. Greg Sunning reveals three great places to ‘take tea’ on your travels.

Gluten-free restaurants

Whether by advice or choice, many of us are going gluten-free, avoiding gluten in wheat, rye, and barley for a healthier lifestyle. The great news is that restaurateurs have woken up to the opportunities, and diners’ choices have never been better. So, while typically wheat-light cuisines such as Indian and Japanese remain superb choices, even previously gluten-heavy baked items and pastries are increasingly becoming options through innovative tweaks in the kitchen. Greg Sunning reveals three great places worth seeking out.

Round-the-clock fine dining whatever your reason

24/7 dining typically rouses expectations of low-grade diners and even lower quality.

Greg Sunning reveals three great spots on our network that are leading the way.

fine food - Treetop dining in the Maldives

Going for dinner in the Maldives isn’t as straightforward as you might think. It may be the world’s flattest country, with atolls fringed by abundant arcs of buttery sands, but that doesn’t mean the country’s chefs are content with their oceanfront beach bars and palm-fringed pool bistros. In pursuit of novelty, the most luxurious resorts are now taking fine dining to new heights: by moving their signature restaurants off the ground and into the trees.

Three of the world’s smallest restaurants

Service, exclusivity, luxury, and personalisation – modern customers demand uniqueness in their experiences and, in an ever-crowded world, their own space.
