Eric Lanlard is putting on a mile-high afternoon tea for Virgin Atlantic

Looking for something with a little more panache when you take to the skies for a holiday? And have a sweet tooth? Then Eric Lanlard may have something for you. The pastry chef has joined up with Virgin Atlantic to launch afternoon tea in their Clubhouses - and then on board. 

First up - the Clubhouses. it kicks off this month in Heathrow and includes: 

  • Prosciutto, sunblushed tomato and rocket on a stone baked Campagne brown roll
  • Smoked salmon, cream cheese and dill mint mini croissant
  • Broccoli, goat’s cheese and cress savoury tart
  • Homemade plain and sultana scones with strawberry preserve, lemon and clotted cream
  • Eton mess verrine with strawberry coulis
  • Apple and blackberry cake
  • Dark chocolate brownie with salted caramel sauce

And of course you can pair that with Lanson rose champagne (or a pot of tea if you must). 

Then, later in the summer - the afternoon tea will hit the skies. And then it's not just for Upper Class - but all cabins will get an Eric Lanlard afternoon tea - if you're flight is airborne in the afternoon, of course. That'll have handmade sandwiches, scones and an assortment of macarons.
