This July, the 102nd edition of the Tour de France is winding its way from Utrecht, Netherlands, to its traditional finish point in Paris. For those of us not undertaking the gruelling 3,300 km ride, how best to celebrate the occasion? Whilst Britain’s relationship with France has not always been a smooth ride, our love for French food has remained firmly on track. It’s only fitting, therefore, that to honour those athletes cycling halfway across Europe, we here in the UK indulge in a menu of the finest French cuisine.
Get off to a sweet start with a selection of Assorted Petit Fours in three pretty pastel icing colours. How do they tickle your fancy?
Feed a family with this large Citron Tart, a favourite French dessert. Serve with a good coffee to maintain alertness during the quieter stretches of the race.
With a little imagination, these large Chocolate Éclairs could symbolise the almost never-ending roads travelled by the weary cyclists. Munch through an entire Éclair in solidarity with the hardworking athletes.
Applaud the cyclists’ arrival in the French capital with the Parisian Profiterole Tower. This classic combination of light choux pasty and indulgent creamy filling is the perfect recipe for finish line indulgence.
