Patissier and baker Eric Lanlard has designed a new afternoon tea menu for five-star hotel Jumeirah Carlton Tower in Knightsbridge, London.
The star of Channel 4’s Baking Mad and owner of south-west London patisserie Cake Boy, Lanlard has created ‘Rêve d’Orient’ – a selection of traditional French sweet and savoury products with inspirations from the Orient and Middle East.
Available in the hotel’s Chinoiserie restaurant, the menu includes a pistachio financier with rose-flavoured cream, and a duo of gourmet pop cones – one filled with dark chocolate ganache and Amarena cherries, the other filled with passion fruit ganache and chocolate popping candy.
In addition, the Afternoon Tea by Eric Lanlard features a lemon tart with raspberries and confit lemon peel and a dark chocolate ‘tier drop’, filled with chocolate mousse.
The afternoon tea will be available throughout the year at a cost of £40 per person, with the menu set to change in June to incorporate a Jubilee theme.
