Eric Lanlard says it with flowers at Jumeirah Carlton Tower
London, 07 May 2014: Jumeirah Carlton Tower is celebrating the arrival of spring with the Botanical Bites afternoon tea. Available from 06 May it will feature a selection of horticultural inspired treats to coincide with the Chelsea Flower Show.
Designed by master patissier Eric Lanlard, the menu will offer sweet and savoury botanical bites infused and garnished with edible flowers and ingredients. Eric Lanlard worked closely with the hotel’s Executive Chef Simon Young to create the floral themed menu.
This elegant afternoon tea showcases sandwiches and summertime treats including a pistachio parfait on a hazelnut praline base, a raspberry financier, an upside down balsamic and black pepper strawberry tart and a ‘Menthe du Jardin’ chocolate floral tube.
Savoury bites include a beetroot bread roulade with smoked salmon and a lemon and chive cream cheese, a spinach bread sandwich with duck egg mayonnaise and baby watercress.
Eric Lanlard said: “Spring has always been a source of constant inspiration. I wanted to share some of the beauty that spring brings into this afternoon tea and trust that my enjoyment of this season will be experienced by all guests.”
Chinoiserie at Jumeirah Carlton Tower provides the perfect backdrop with its sophisticated décor and soothing music played by the resident harpist. Featuring an elegant private space called The Jasmine Room, Chinoiserie is the ideal place for a business meeting, family event or informal get-together with friends.
The Botanical Bites afternoon tea by Eric Lanlard is available at Chinoiserie now and costs £40 per person; £50 per person with a glass of champagne or £55 with a glass of rosé champagne.
