If you're the kind of person who opens the fridge and can't decide whether to grill a steak or head straight for the profiteroles then savoury patisserie might be the novelty food trend for you, combining savoury ingredients like lobster and smoked salmon with pastries and cream to make incredibly indulgent desserts (starters? darters?).
Harrods has created seven contemporary twists on classic patisserie, which will be available from early November at the Modern European counter in its food hall.
