Raymond Blanc’s Leeds Brasserie Blancs has launched a new seasonal Champagne & Soufflé menu.
Fusing classic French cuisine with the essence of a quintessential English summer day, brand new sweet soufflé flavours have been lovingly crafted, which offer an alternative light afternoon treat. These will be accompanied by a cool, crisp glass of Champagne Lanson, perfect to enjoy on a sunny day.
The showstopping Strawberries and Cream soufflé features a fluffy strawberry soufflé served with macerated strawberries, vanilla ice cream and a strawberry coulis.
Also new is the refreshing Apricot, Almond & Amaretto soufflé. The light-as-air soufflé features poached apricots, amaretto and marzipan and is served with an apricot coulis, apricots & vanilla ice cream. The final soufflé on this special afternoon menu is the Brasserie Blanc signature Pistachio, served with a rich chocolate ice cream.
Brasserie Blanc is famous for their light and fluffy soufflés – a legacy passed on by Raymond Blanc whose delicious Cheese Soufflé is so popular it has remained on the menu since Day 1. It even appeared in the recent ITV series Simply Raymond Blanc with Brasserie Blanc’s Executive Chef – Clive Fretwell – making a guest appearance to cook the dish.
Raymond Blanc commented: “The soufflé is synonymous with France and a dish such as strawberries and cream is quintessentially English. Chef Clive took these winning combinations and created an afternoon treat with a twist.”
Raymond’s Brasserie Blanc offers authentic French cuisine in a modern French brasserie setting.
Priced at £15 for Soufflé and Champagne, served Monday to Saturday, 2pm-5pm.
