Enjoy a moment with just the two of you,
A small pleasure in the day,
Happy and in love,
Enjoying the Pomme d'Amour cocktail.
Our barman, Mathias, shares his cocktail recipe The Apple of Love :
- strawberry purée
- manzana liqueur
- lemon juice
- Armance B. (sparkling rosé)
The chef gives you his recipe.
Don't forget, Candlemas is on its way.
Winter will either end or hold its sway.
Hide a gold coin in your hand
to keep bad luck from the land.
So riches all year long
Will be your song.
Pancakes flambéed in Grand Marnier
Ingredients (serves 6):
- 250g flour
- 3 eggs
- 3 spoons of sugar
- 2 spoons of neutral oil
- 500ml milk
- 1 pinch of salt
- 4 spoons of Grand Marnier
To sprinkle over the pancakes :
- 6 sugar cubes
- a little water
- a knob of butter
- 2 large glasses of Grand Marnier
- zest of one orange
In a bowl, mix the flour, sugar and salt. Add the eggs and then the oil. Dilute by gradually adding the cold milk. Leave the mixture to rest for an hour in a cool place. Just before you cook the pancakes, add the Grand Marnier.
Lightly oil a pancake pan. The thinner the layer of mix, the thinner and lighter the pancake. Fold the pancakes in four on a stainless steel platter.
In a saucepan, heat the sugar, water, orange zest, butter and Grand Marnier. Sprinkle the pancakes with the contents of the saucepan and set light to it.
Hotel Plaza participates in the fight against food waste, which represents an ecological issue as well as an economic loss.
We have therefore committed to a partnership with NextAlim, a specialist in insect farming based at Futuroscope, a French pioneer in the recovery of bio-waste using insects.
"Black Soldier Fly" larvae supplied by NextAlim transform our organic waste into fertiliser. The fats and proteins from the insect are used for animal feed and green chemistry.
By trusting NextAlim with our food waste, we are actively participating in sustainable development processes.
