Author Ernestine Ulmer once said ‘Life is uncertain. Eat Dessert first.’ But sometimes a main course isn’t necessary at all, sometimes all you really need is cake and pudding. Well riverside French restaurant, Le Pont de la Tour is whisking guests away for a taste of Paris and letting everyone indulge in their sweeter side by introducing their ‘With Love from Paris’ pâtisserie tasting menu. Created by Executive Head Chef Tom Cook, who trained with Master Pastry Chef Laurent Duchêne in Parris, the menu features Tarte au Chocolat, Praline Profiteroles and Pistachio Madeleines.  And the best part? You get to have three cakes! That’s right, guests are invited to have three cakes with either tea, coffee or Champagne! Who needs savoury food anyway?
