If you've read the blog before, you'll know that we're massive Lanlard fans - so you can imagine our excitement upon hearing the news of his brand new Chelsea Flower Show Tea!
Here's a little about what you can expect:
London’s iconic Jumeirah Carlton Tower continues its collaboration with master patissier and star of Channel 4’s Baking Mad series Eric Lanlard with the launch of his new Mon Beau Papillon afternoon tea.Eric’s new afternoon tea is inspired by his observation of butterflies flitting between beautiful flowers and the different petals they select to land on, inspiring him to include a variety of flavours and colours to replicate the mixed beauty of nature. Working closely with Executive Chef Simon Young, the two have united their creative culinary minds to deliver an inspiring take on afternoon tea, which will be available in the Chinoiserie from 8th May.The menu begins with a section of savoury delights including a mini raspberry macaroon with smoked duck and smoked chilli jelly, a mini brioche bun with thyme blossom and grain mustard smoked chicken and jasmine smoked salmon and goats curd tart, finished with an asparagus and pea shoot wrap. Then, to satisfy even the most discerning sweet tooth, a selection of pastries, cakes and desserts that combine elegant and subtle flavours to delicious effect. From a mini raspberry and basil tart with white chocolate, dark chocolate spoon with morello chocolate mousse, white chocolate macaroon with strawberry marshmallow ice cream and a pear and walnut choux bun, the Mon Beau Papillon afternoon tea is a decadent and memorable experience. With remarkable attention to detail, Eric ensures there are miniature white chocolate butterflies on the dark chocolate spoon and white chocolate macaroon, to combine his initial inspiration with the complete afternoon tea experience.
Commenting on his new Mon Beau Papillon afternoon tea, Eric Lanlard says: “Every year one of the most beautiful temporary exhibitions in the world takes place in London, The Chelsea Flower Show. For a short time the most beautiful flowers and plants are on display to the public. This afternoon tea is inspired by an elegant butterfly, hopping from flowers to plants, enjoying their delicate scents, taste and textures.”
