Flambé Masterclass – Le Pont de la Tour
When it comes to showcasing some classical front of house skills, nothing impresses quite like the fire of the flambé. On Monday the 25th February we will kick off MHW by offering 10 young people the opportunity to learn how to flambé a Crêpes Suzette. As well as being able to master this skill those who attend will also get to eat their delicious creations with a steaming cup of hot chocolate whilst hearing about the amazing career opportunities at D&D London.
