The stage: Why hello time trial. We've missed you. Time trials at the end of grand tours are designed for drama: two rivals close enough on GC that a winning ride is essential to keep the race leader's jersey. There was also the race for the stage win, which is a very different animal during a time trial than during a road stage, the old cliche of each man for himself.
The wine: Meyer Fonne Pinot Noir Altenbourg 2015
The Trésor des Ballons, an ambassadorial cake created by the Park, is a collective project whose creation has been entrusted to young people, a symbol of the future and renewal. The park accompanied them in the discovery of the smells, colors, shapes and products of its territory.
The recipe for this so-called travel cake was created by the students of the professional high school JBS Chardin in Gérardmer , the packaging research by a trainee from the IUT of Colmar , the communication by the students of the professional license of the IUT of Saint- Dié-des-Vosges .
Storyteller Françoise PECCHIURA was invited to write the legend. The molds were designed by the company de Buyer from Val d'Ajol.
The Ballons treasure has been marketed since July 2016 in 39 pastry shops in Haut-Rhin , Haute-Saône, Territoire de Belfort and Vosges. The brand belongs to the Park and an agreement specifies the details of this partnership with professional unions and pastry craftsmen. It confirms everyone's commitment to making quality pastry and promoting the use of products in short circuits. Its rectangular shape and the design of the communication make it a modern and authentic product at the same time.
This financier with wild blueberry, brimbelle, gingerbread dough base and blueberry jam. The soft pastry can be kept for 15 days without the need for particular freshness. Enough to easily feed a hike or constitute an ideal present when returning from a stay in the Vosges heights.
