SCONES inspired by Irn Bru are just one of the tempting treats on the menu at a hotel in Edinburgh this month.

The idea behind the Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh’s afternoon tea is to provide something from every region in the world where the Waldorf Astoria has a hotel.

Dale MacPhee, general manager of the Edinburgh branch, said: “We wanted to give our guests the opportunity to taste some internationally themed food alongside the finest Scottish fare. Irn Bru is just as much an institution in Scotland as afternoon tea is in Britain, so it made sense to bring the two together.”

As well as the freshly baked scones there will be a range of savoury bites including Shakshuka, a spiced stew from Israel and Po Boy, crispy spiced chicken from Louisianna. Desserts include Pina Colada surprise from South America alongside the white chocolate and mint Religieuse from France, black forest gateau (Germany), Key lime pie (Florida) and tiramisu macaron (Italy).
