Savoy Truffle Explained



So the question was posed at high tea at the Savoy last night: What exactly IS the Savoy Truffle of George Harrison Beatles White Album fame? Our lovely Polish server did some research, and told us that during the 60's and 70's there was a sweet that consisted of custard and raspberry jam in a shot glass layered with a few other things. According to Wikipedia, Harrison takes each name of the dreaded desserts that will supposedly claim the teeth of his lovely friend, Eric Clapton, from a simple box of chocolates. Whatever the case may be, I felt as happy and as sweet last night as any confection. Thanks to Ronny (the Savoy coat check man and bathroom attendant), I was able to be photographed multiple times in both the ladies' room and the mens' room. We also shot numerous films and I was able to see the glorious results of my big but elegant feet tip-tapping through one of the most beautiful hotels I've ever seen. This morning I woke up from a dream that my late cat Boris was still alive and we were cuddling and I also wish my boyfriend were with me.

Nice pictures, Amanda, and thanks for the rock and roll truffle trivia. Those are some serious gams in the last picture.

Continued good times, my dear!

Cheers,

Amazing. You should change your name to :
Amandamazing :)

The photos of the surrounds are stunning, I love that pale blue decor with the gold. Sigh.
And I love seeing the big smile on your face! Instead of sadness...
