"Get around it. You could probably order a cup of tea one person in the whole thing. I should imagine you could, because it's very, very filling. And you get an awful lot of food. Oh yeah, filled us both up. It certainly did. But so lovely. Hey Britt, there's a little confusion among travelers between the terminology. You hear about cream tea afternoon tea high tea. What are the differences there? Well, a cream tea and afternoon tea tend to be a fairly similar sort of thing, really, in my view. High tea tends to be something sort of like an early tea that you would give children perhaps when they came in from school, something with a little more substance to it where you might have something called Welsh rarebit or you might have them that wonderful thing that we have been on toast with it or something like that. It's the sort of thing that I would give to my children if they came in and were starving and couldn't wait for dinner. So a high tea is more of a meal then. Yes, a lot of visitors refer to afternoon tea as high tea. And I guess we don't really correct them anymore, not that we're really mine. Oh, okay, but that's very good to know, because I think what we're thinking about is the afternoon tea. And that's with all the ritual. And that's where you'd go to the fancy tea room in a fancy hotel or something like this. It is really and the sort of thing that you'll be served you'll be served little, sandwiches, very dainty sandwiches with the crust cut off the bread, the cucumber sandwiches, sometimes smoked salmon, you will have egg and cress sandwiches, then you'll have scones as great debate about whether you pronounce its scone or scone, the maturity of people pronounce its gone, but quite a number pronounce it's going to be varies, but this is like a little cake often with currents in orbital sultanas or raisins. It depends they're served in a very different ways, but generally that's how they are. And you cut them in half and put strawberry jam on either side and then a great big spoonful of clotted cream. Clotted cream is about. Oh, I think it's probably a minimum of 55% fat which to you in the U.S. would probably qualify as butter. It's very, very rich and it's quite delicious. You're just getting me all excited here, britta. Oh, really? Now when I like what I like to use, those beautiful scones or scones, I slice them very thinly so that I can have almost like a loaf of bread, and then I can put the clotted cream in the jam on each little thin layer. Is that kosher? Well, you know, it depends, I think you can do pretty much what you want, but the way I tend to do it is cut them in half and then put the strawberry jam and then a dollop of cream on the middle. And I keep two halves separate. And eat them just like that. You sort of eat them in one half, and then of course you've got to leave some room for pastries and cakes which will follow. So it's not something that's to be hurried. There's an elegant aspect to it, and you're expected to take your time over it if I went for afternoon tea at 3 o'clock. I certainly wouldn't expect to leave much before about 5 or 5 30, and I probably wouldn't eat much that evening either. I bet not. So it helped us envision this. You get this three tiered silver trade, don't you? You do. Very often it's presented like that. Take us through that from the bottom to the top. Well, from the bottom very often you will have the sandwiches and they'll be finger sandwiches, so if you imagine a slice of bread cut into probably about 6 segments, sometimes they'll be triangles. Without the crust. Oh, without the crust, yes, the crusts are. I remember reading somewhere, somebody saying, yes, if you didn't slice off the crust what on earth would you give to the poor, which I thought was very snobby, but you cut them and you make them as delicate and dainty as possible, and then on the next tier up you've got scones and then on the final tier you've got very tiny little cakes. Oh, this sounds so good. I'm speaking with Brit lansdale and Britt is a blue badge guy she's helped me for years in London as I work on my guidebook there. And we'll have Brit's contact information on our website at the radio corner at Rick Steves dot com. Our phone numbers 877-333-7425 and Cheryl's on the phone in Portland, Oregon, Cheryl, thanks for your call. Hi, how are you? Great. I was calling with a comment for afternoon tea, a place I wanted to recommend, which is the dorchester hotel. I've been there twice for afternoon tea and really enjoyed it. Great food, great ambiance in a very relaxing atmosphere. The dorchester. Absolutely lovely and I would agree completely. As a marvelous hotel and it does a very good afternoon tea. Cheryl, when you were having the tea, did you have the three tiered silver setting? Yeah, well, actually they brought the platter sandwiches, which you could select from. And that was my downfall. Stay too many of those, but then later on, they brought the three tiered with the scones. And a couple of other items with the clotted cream and the jam. And then later they brought the platter desserts, which you could select. So yeah, we do do that sometimes. Now, Cheryl, were you surrounded by what seemed like uppity, aristocratic English people, or was it something that a tourist could feel comfortable in? I would definitely say a tourist could feel comfortable in it. They do have a dress code. But if you have flax and a nice shirt or a nice coat or something like that, you would definitely sit right in. And I never felt it all uncomfortable or that it was stuffy the staff at the hotel they were great. I just need the whole experience great. Now one thing I learned when I was having my tea is that the actual selection of tea is important too. Brit what can you tell us about the variety of teas you might be able to choose from? Well, there's a huge variety but the most important thing to remember I think is that we always have it with milk. Sometimes I've noticed when I've gone with groups of people or individuals. They don't expect to have milk in their tea, but most of us will have milk automatically and I know that you don't. The sort of teas that will be served for afternoon will be things like darjeeling. A lot of us me particularly like tea called Earl grey, apparently the queen's very fond of lapsang souchong, but you can have anything really for afternoon tea and you certainly won't have fruit teas or anything like that. It'll always be Indian or China tea, that sort of thing will be served and I think something like darjeeling is usually a light sort of pleasant tea, often places do their own afternoon tea blends things that they feel are suitable, certainly at the end of it you'll have drunk so much that you will almost undoubtedly have a massive caffeine and sugar rush. So Sheryl and your next visit to London, what are your tea plans? I would definitely go back to the dorchester. It was, you know, I thought about trying different places, but the experience there was so great, it's just you go with what you know and since it was a joyful experience, I would definitely go there again. Sounds good. Cheryl from Portland, thanks for the call. Thank you. And Diana, in Santa Fe, emails us, and she writes when in London, I had high tea at brown's hotel at the Ritz and at the Stafford hotel. They're all great and fairly pricey. What are some of the less traditional places that serve fine afternoon teas. Britta, do you know about the Haiti at brown's hotel at the Ritz at the Stafford? Yes, I do actually, and I've been to all of them. In fact, if you look at my figure, you can tell that, you know, I'm something of a great enjoyer of afternoon tea, but unit a very tremendously in terms of the sort of ambience or atmosphere you want, because some places will have music, sometimes I'll have a piano player, sometimes I'll have a little chamber orchestra, so you can go very grand and glam, or you can go very low key and an awful lot of little places will do afternoon tea. So it really rather depends what sort of experience you want, you can go into many cafes in London very simple little cafes and they will give you a scone with jam and cream. Cheaper places perhaps and perfectly nice just behind Kensington Palace, you have the orange tree, and they will do an afternoon tea, where you can just have jam, scone, and cream, and a cup of tea, and it'll be much less expensive than the big 40 pound layout for something a little more glamorous. Those are the sort of places or else you could go into any little hotel and not have the full Monty as we say, and just have a scone and cream..
"dorchester hotel" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Out of his scheduled slot I'm Michael castner It's the closest thing you can find to a masterclass on how the world works The United States has lost a tad of credibility Bloomberg balance of power Are we fulfilling this commitment to this point Week days at noon eastern Can you give us the priorities on Bloomberg radio Investors are starting to move away from the big mo and that big mow for many years of course was fixed income I worry much more so that individual investors many of whom haven't yet figured out the damage that could occur to their personal portfolios as interest rates begin to rise A clinic has always from Abby Joseph Cohen the professor at Columbia business school from New York City with Tom Keane Lisa parameters and Jonathan Ferro on this earnings day here in America with JPMorgan leaving the way with BlackRock with Wells Fargo city still to come Yields up three basis points on tens to one 73 45 equities down a bit down 18 when negative four tenths of 1% There's a big story this morning on Wall Street some people are getting paid a whole lot more You didn't pay the whole lot more and we're gonna wait for Citigroup to give us a big change I thought it was fastening out Ken Leon equated the new city group The Frasier city group to what we see at UBS and we'll monitor that We may see that early but we're scheduling that here in about 12 minutes retail sales At 8 30 there are points where you stop in a decade ago or so I was interviewing some food guru at the United Nations and I stopped when he tried to explain to an idiot like me what you spend on food in Cambodia And here's the math You spend 70% of your income in Cambodia on food It is not the United States of America It gives us perspective creating what do you have Yeah well I'm looking at exactly those food prices Tom especially from that UN food and agricultural index that goes back on a monthly basis really to the highest level since 2010 and 2011 to really highlight just how extreme the move is Well the last time we were at these levels there was a gigantic food crisis in the world You had droughts you had a crop crisis in Russia which is one of the major wheat kind of producers of the world So to see that kind of extreme mood really tells you that this is going to be an issue that affects the bottom line of a lot of folks and to really bring it back to the United States Also have retail sales Like you mentioned coming up at 8 30 and that's going to be crucial because in the last dataset the biggest contributor was food processor I think we're used to guilty I'm usually guilty of an elite perspective where food is an afterthought It's not even in America It's not an afterthought Yeah and that totally true when you mentioned Cambodia but I'm looking at Mexico for example if you look at their inflation numbers they actually have to hike more than perhaps any other EM country The biggest driver of that and then Colombia as well war food prices fresh food prices You saw that on the earnings perspective as well Albertsons came out and said the majority of their transportation costs are logistic costs What was coming from fresh food prices One of the confusions right now critic is how inflation dovetails into growth How much does it crimp growth How much is it just a symptom of a really positive economy How much based in your conversations with strategists has the higher costs of base items that people buy crimped their demand for other items or not as we may see in about 40 minutes time with retail sales Well it hasn't yet Lisa and that's really the concern going into 2022 because you remember you still have the effect of that fiscal stimulus There are still savings that people are drawing upon So they're able to spend money on say clothes and food but when we talk about just the impact of what's actually driving this inflation it is a little bit of a chicken and egg situation because you do have those supply chain issues that are pushing the costs higher But you also have demand pushing at higher So you kind of have this double whammy that ends up with higher prices overall And that's going to be a story that you see in the oil market as well You see it in the food market and you're certainly seeing it in things like furniture apparel and other consumer products Pretty one reason why you have incredible perspective is you look at some of these underlying economic trends and dovetail it into markets And what we just saw from JPMorgan was an unexpectedly high rise in compensation costs and expenses which some people are wondering about how much from your discussions with analysts have people accurately priced higher wages higher input costs in corporate America and beyond Well they've definitely priced in the higher input cost The wage costs are really where it's getting tricky because if you look at just the earnings stories and some of the bottom lines I'm going to look back to the third quarter because we're still just starting to get the fourth quarter results out But in the third quarter a lot of these companies had priced in higher commodity costs because they could do that forecasting it back to say ten years ago in the post recessionary period that followed O 8 what they can't do is price in those wage costs because we've covered this all over Bloomberg all day long There are wage costs there is a very high quit rate You are also seeing the fact that there is this trend where people are actually working not to typically into the office And that's something that you can't exactly quantify You can't map out That's something you have to do play by play What are you looking for next week I mean you're out front Folks the truth here is a pretty good deserved charts She's got like 47 in reserve at any given time What are you looking for next week I want to look at the commodities story because you are still going to get beyond oil Beyond oil Thank you Yes You're going to look at copper you're going to look at aluminum aluminum in particular because those Russia talks are still going on And that's going to be a big price factor into aluminum and specific pro surveillance tip Quote copper off the LMA or the guy with a British accent one of a tent Actually it won't be me Tom It's usually you You get upset about that more than I do Well I don't know There's Chicago folks and there's a London LMA in John and I have a proclivity to London even though many including Jeff de graff with a smart note this week on copper as well He's a doctor copper critic Gupta It's doctor copper Can I just really quickly mention the lme card Did you see that I'm not taking over but did you see that story that there were electricity outage at the and actually affected prices for a hot second So you had to move to the dorchester hotel Let's be clear here and thank you by the way Alexa this is the only reason Tom ever brings up the lantern medal exchange because of alame week and he wants to go back to the parties of yesteryear and go to the dorchester how much of the mentions are simply to get a road trip I mean it's for road trips Just all the mentions are ever about I went with my entourage and one of the members of the entourage.

"Go back to that night. If you can recall it well in in london in general he was very kind of quiet during that. Maybe it's because he performed twenty-one nights in a row for maybe four hours a night and then every night afterwards would do an after show for three. Oh maybe hours. So maybe that's why who's quiet but that particular night was one of the many nights where we would shoot from. Let's say he did all those shows he'd get back to the hotel maybe like three or four in the morning. And then we would shoot until nine or ten in the morning stills. Wow yeah and we did that pretty much every single night. would you still play music during those shoots. No in we would because we'd be shooting around the hotel when everybody else was and so no. We were like tiptoe like little else really if you could play music for this shoot. Where he's coming down this regal staircase with his hair slicked back. What would you play for that moment. Maybe like because there was another shot. That i did it a piano. That was elton john's piano that he gave to them. Maybe it would be something more like purple rain. I like data. i'm in. It's always a good time but purple rain always a good well because it again it was. That night was really really intimate. Depictions were really had a certain kind of mood to them as you can see. He leaned on the piano and he played in. The piano is in this very small room at the back of the dorchester hotel and a lot of people. Don't even think no. The room is there and elton. John donated this beautiful piano that was made out of cut mirrors and he was particularly quiet that night. Can you recall what he played the piano. I'm seeing them now. Leaning over this mirrored piano looking at himself in the piano it's beautiful. He never was one to religious. Sit down and sing and play music in my presence. Anyway i mean. He did that at home when he'd have little sometimes late at night. You'd get an invitation to go to his house at like one or two in the morning. And there'd be maybe like ten people there and play music all night and play some of his songs. And he'd plays sly and he'd play.

Thank you and i hung up in my twenty minutes later. Prince calls me goes. So how'd you conversation go. I said well. Here's what he said. I told him and he said i'll call your at back and five so in five minutes. The same person from the record company called me back and said correction. We are going on with that. We are doing the music video. Prince this idea Based on the movie caligula which is a movie. I don't know if you've seen it set in roman times and it's all about a group of people sexuality let's say it's pretty avant garde and ahead of its time. The set was the many floors of all these different rooms with people. Having sex people making out people drinking wine people eating grapes and it was all yes.

No i'm there. I'm going for it. Will you please with the video. Yeah i mean the video. When i left paisley was different than the video that actually aired because he kept working on it after i left. Okay see. I didn't know this about him. Then but he would always try to make little tweaks and changes without me on some of the projects would okay with that. No because i felt that he wants told me that i was going to be the person who was going to change how he was perceived visually and i never felt that his visuals lived up to his music not that individuals could really live up to his music. But i've felt like his visuals could have more depth and more of him. After i knew him the him that i knew. And so i. I was never happy. When he made changes to the project's we worked on without me. But most of the he would call me to fix them in the end anyway. Okay so changes he made. He couldn't finish himself because he said. Oh they didn't match the lighting that you did or something's wrong with the colored. Can you fix moments in the pros. So you know we we would eventually come around to meet in the coming up.

I take John's point yelling me, folks is a much deeper market. To me. It's got a huge and superior history than what we see. But yes in America. Sometimes we called Chicago as well. Speaking of Chicago's Minneapolis, Lindsay Piegza joins us the steeple. They looked at 146 year low temperatures yesterday she's warming up in Minneapolis. This morning, Lindsey. I love your note. Where you go toe automobile sales is part of a better economy to car sales indicate a boom economy. I think What we're seeing is is small steps in the right direction across a number of different sectors in the U. S economy. We thought job growth moved back into positive territory in January. Manufacturing activity continuing to be an expansionary territory, strong auto sales and, of course, as we saw overall that latest consumer spending report showing retail sales, surging past expectations up over 5%, so we are taking steps in the right direction. Well, I look at the steps in the right direction. We're moving. But the real question is, Can we sustain what everybody agrees is a GDP run above potential GDP. Should we get used to 456% morning in America Real GDP? Well, not if we don't continue to rely on artificial support from the Fed and federal government. But right now we have to talk about the fact that we're relying on trillions upon trillions upon trillions of dollars being pumped into the economy, the supplement growth if we begin to remove that it's very likely that the U. S economy struggles to maintain even inorganic 2% page. As we saw going into the start of 2020 prior to the pandemic the right now, even though as I mentioned we are taking steps in the right direction. The economy is far from out of the woods that we still have a tremendous amount of ground to recapture before talking about returning to pre pandemic levels. Lindsay When do you expect people to shift some of their buying of stuff to buying of services? That's a good question. I think this the stems ah longer question of expectations and comparability, with the economy beginning to emerge. So we have to talk about consumers being able to imagine in economy post crisis and I think once we get to that point once there's ah, certain level of confidence that the economy is on a longer term trajectory to a sustainable position of improvement. Consumers will be more willing to go out into the marketplace and engage in those service activities. Get your hair done. Get your nails done being close to other people in a movie theater or sports than you, But we have to be at the point where again there's an increased level of confidence that we have a meaningful way of separating the healthy from the sick and the economy is on the longer term pathway to some semblance of normal. In here. We're gonna go back to the trend that we saw pre pandemic of people emphasizing services increasingly over goods or we shifted back to a new regime. It's hard to say that consumers have changed their behavior longer term in terms of the goods and services that they consume on a monthly basis. We do know that I'm a good perspective, consumers have dramatically shifted what they purchased months months. But that was a reflection of the changing environments, the force restrictions and requirements that businesses and workers were needed to it here, too. But once we open the gates once we allow, presumably at some point allowed The economy to reopen and allow consumers to go back into the marketplace. I would suspect that we do see some back towards that normal consumption of services that being said there may be some sectors that are permanently impacted. We may never go back to packing into movie theaters when it may never go back into packing into conference room, so we may see some structural changes. But I do think there's a tremendous amount of pent up demand for those lost access or for that lost access to serve. Says. Over the past 10 months, at least let's get to the Fed conversation. How hard does it need to get before the Fed can't ignore anymore? Pretty hot. I think the Fed has made it very clear that they are not even thinking about thinking about raising rates at this point, not only from an economic standpoint in terms of GDP growth, but looking from inflation standpoint, the Fed has basically laid it out that they do not see inflation as a near term risk. And even if we do see upside, Momenta, Matt some of those weaker Christ components fall out of the calculation on a year over year basis. They're there already bracing, already telling the market Race for that upside potential as not an indication of a longer term trajectory, meaning that they're not going to change their pathway because of one or two months off stronger inflation. And now, of course, the fact is looking at inflation from a flexible average standpoint, meeting that with inflation at 1.3% since 2015, they could essentially allow inflation to run hot at 3% for the next five years and still not exceed their 2%. Average. So right now, the Fed is committed to low rates for the foreseeable future. As far as the eye can see, When it comes to inflation measures, you've got market based expectations, consumer expectations and realized data. Is the fact driven by one over over all the others are a combination of all three. I think the Fed keeps an eye on all the measures of inflation in the marketplace. But when it comes down to it when it needs a justification for why they see stable or or lower than expected inflation, it's going to be looking at the P C. E. Even though consumers.

"Surveillance. And here is the price action this Friday morning, the confluence of things going on around the world, the cross currents right now. Absolutely unbelievable. On the week, though, the S and P 500 pretty much unchanged coming into Friday right now and changed us well in the S and P beneath the surface, though. I think the relative trade that everyone's looking at right now is big tech versus small caps. We check in on that every morning. So let's do that again on the front foot, then asked that pushing higher but about a little more than 1/10 of 1% on the back foot. You've got the Russell the small caps down by about 1/10 of 1%.

What is it break which way the short term risk that they take over or the forward out looking, the better hopes there is not going to be the dominant issue. If you get to the bond market. Here's the dominant issue this morning. It's the spat between the chairman of the Federal Reserve and the secretary of the Treasury, Manu chip power, not on the same page about those emergency liquidity programs on that credit backstop. That's important for couple of reasons. If you don't have that said, put in the credit market. Where does that leave the Fed? They have to load up on bonds.

It That's that's great. I would note folks dollar Mexican peso really showing Mexican strength. You make it out to a breach of the 20 level down to a 19 handle, and that shows some of that e m strength that we've been talking about through the week. Well, we like to do it. Surveillance has not talked to the fancy people. The pundits punditry in more pundits. We'd like to talk to the people that they read and they listen to. One of those is Jared Bernstein and steam career at the center on budget and Policy Priorities, and a senator from Delaware a few years ago discovered this as the doctor Bernstein joined the team. Jared Bernstein, part of the transition team for the President. Elect. Jared, I know we need to break some news here and I do want know the secretary treasurer is gonna be but I really want to go to transition. Manu Sha. You are lined up. I think to walk Champ and major. You're gonna be like first dog Walker for the Biden administration. What is it like being on a transition team? I think the most important thing to recognize there is that this is such a critical moment for a smooth normal transition process to happen, and what's happening right now is anything but normal. Remember, I was the chief economist to the then vice president elect back in 2000 and eight And at this point we were actively planning. Remember that was the great recession. We were actively planning for a fiscal relief package that was legislated less than four weeks after Obama and Biden took office. That's what should be happening now. But this is not normal. My friends for this transition to be thrown off this way, and it's coming at great cost in terms of health, and that's right. The economy, okay, a delicate question that and you know, we make fun of champion major. The dogs returning to the White House with the president elect urine. What's so important here is And what is your action plan? This is transition Interrupted. Are you planning out a budget process without the knowledge of the present White House? Well, certainly we are obviously and you'll hear the president like talking about this thinking about fiscal package with great urgency, one of the things, he said, and by the way president elects. They like to wait till they're in the office to start moving legislation. He has said. That is not the case when it comes to physical relief. That should happen in the lame duck and I couldn't agree more. But if you're talking about Preparing for the for this job that he is that the American people have elected him for. You've got to talk about virus control and that, of course, you can see the president elect is very active on planning virus control. But you know, his vivid Mardi who's the former surgeon general on the Cobra team recently talked about how important it is to get that information. In transition from folks from folks that are currently in the White House. And that's not happening again avoidable suffering to Americans in terms of health care and economic hardship, because this transition is not occurring the way it should. Judge. We're lucky to have a bit of time with you this morning so we could talk about the transition a little bit more. In just a moment. I want to talk about the fiscal plan just a bit with you. The Republican Senate was the obstacle to getting the deal that Pelosi wants. It was still likely to have a Republican Senate. We have one now will likely have one after January. A swell what is it that you think that president elect bite and can achieve? Speaker Pelosi couldn't Well, I think the way you teed it up is exactly right. I mean, the president elect continues to talk about how people can decide to cooperate. And that was is the perfect time for them to do so we have heard positive sounds about a fiscal package from members of the Republican squad, including McConnell himself. What we're not seeing is the kinds of negotiations that the president elect has been stressing And that needs to happen As of yesterday. You know, we have a non employment insurance system where over 20 Million people are making claims And at least 12 million, we recently learned could lose their support as that's a zit expires at the At the end of the year. We have over 400,000 small businesses that have closed, but the long term unemployment is increasing at a rate we haven't seen. In the history of that serious we learned this morning that according to Zip recruiter, job growth is slowing, not just in places where the virus is surging, but in other places as well. So I think the urgency of the economic situation has and the health situation which, of course you're intimately connected. Just has to reach legislators. I'm an economist. I'm not a politician. I can't tell you Strategy to get them there. But I can certainly stress the urgency of this moment in that regard. Let's talk about the agency in the size because currently the Rays of one of the half trillion dollars spread between the two sides, and I'm not sure how that's closed at all. It has until in the last month. What kind of size package do you need? In a moment like this, Jared? Probably the best way to think about it. Start from the bottom up and start adding up. What's necessary. State and local budgets are really hurting. Remember, they can't run budget deficits. The unemployment insurance system as.
