A few weeks ago, Yorkshire was struck with Tour De France fever. It seemed like the whole of Yorkshire went ‘yellow’ and turned up for the show. And what a party it turned out to be. We were blessed with the finest sunny weather to show off the stunning countryside which was decorated abundantly with bunting and yellow bicycles. Even the sheep had a ‘hairdo’ marking the various jerseys representing the competitions within the race: yellow, green, white & red polka-dot.
To relive the memory and demonstrate our impressions of the two days of cycling madness, our theme this month was aptly named ‘Le Tour That Was’.
Our hosts for the evening were the fantastic people at Vicars Café Bistro in Saltaire; by day, a delightful café and by night on a Friday and Saturday, a contemporary bistro. They are a non-profit organisation, supporting a variety of local and international causes. I was very grateful for their willingness to play host to us again as this was not our first visit. I was also equally delighted to have the opportunity to support their causes through the purchase of our refreshments on the night.
I had asked our local paper, the Telegraph & Argus, if they would be interested in running an article on us to which they kindly agreed. So we had their photographer along to take a few snaps; unfortunately he had another photo shoot to get to and was unable to partake in any cake! The published article can be seen here.
Without further ado, here are our cakes in a bit more detail …
On a final note, a very big thank you again to our hosts, Vicars, without whom the evening wouldn’t have been the success it was.
A bientôt …
