Alert friends, the Four Seasons George V, Paris' most Michelin-starred palace, is launching a last-minute Valentine's Day tea time for this July 14, 2024. If you're still looking for that special surprise, now's the time to get in on the action.

It doesn't get much more chic and romantic than this palatial afternoon tea served in the magical Orangerie room, overlooking the glittering dome, filled with roses for the occasion.

You won't find a tea time like this in Paris. At the George V, Michael Bartocetti was the first to offer a gourmet format. Forget the classic three-tiered display, the idea is to offer a true experience worthy of a Michelin-starred menu, in several sequences.

We begin with a savory preamble, carefully concocted by Alan Taudon, the Michelin-starred chef of the L'Orangerie restaurant. This is rare enough to warrant mention in a palace, where most of the time, savoury dishes are disappointing. And this truffle soufflé is well worth the detour!

On the sweet side, after a pre-dessert glacé rose et coco, we let ourselves be carried away to Paradise with the chocolate tart, which reveals sweet notes of spice at the end of the tasting. The tart blood orange sorbet is a real treat.

The Pavlova with citrus fruits and champagne is sure to capture your heart. Light, slightly crunchy and iced, we'll melt. The baba passion with its cold-brewed coffee cream is surprising, and the homemade spritz is as crisp as it is melt-in-your-mouth.

And since Valentine's Day is best enjoyed as a duo, let's share the sublime pink praline puff pastry brioche from Viennese pastry virtuoso Chef Guillaume Cabrol.
