Jumeriah Zabeel Saray launches new afternoon tea menu with Eric Lanlard
Celebrity pâtissier, Eric Lanlard, designs a Turkish inspired cake exclusively for Jumeirah Zabeel Saray’s new Ottoman Afternoon Tea menu
Dubai, August 2013: Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, the Ottoman inspired luxury resort located on Palm Jumeirah, has announced details of its new Ottoman inspired afternoon tea menus in partnership with Eric Lanlard.
The master pâtissier, author and TV star worked closely with the culinary team at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray to design the ‘Orange Blossom Financier’, a special cake developed exclusively for the new Ottoman Afternoon Tea menu that re-launched alongside a traditional English Afternoon Tea Menu in Sultan’s Lounge, the hotel’s lobby lounge.
Eric Lanlard commented: “I love the concept of afternoon tea, especially when it has been infused with something unique such as this Ottoman menu. The Orange Blossom Financier is a fusion of a classic tea-time treat with fragrant notes of the Middle East”
Neil Foster, Executive Chef at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray commented: “the collaboration between Eric Lanlard and Jumeirah Zabeel Saray reinforces perfectly the resort’s position as a destination of culinary excellence in Dubai – adding that special touch to what is already a very unique concept in Sultan’s Lounge. We have taken the traditional Afternoon Tea menu and re-designed it to connect culturally with the Turkish theme of Jumeirah Zabeel Saray – offering a first of its kind menu in Dubai that gives our guests the opportunity to taste Eric’s exclusive creation.”
Lanlard, who plays an instrumental role in the design of the Afternoon Tea at the hotel’s London based sister property, Jumeirah Carlton Tower, revealed the new cake at a private event at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray as part of the new menu launch.
