Delifrance Singapore turns 30

Délifrance, celebrates her 3 decades in Singapore and to mark this special milestone, they launched they first-ever Michelin Sandwich, Le Paris-Singapore. Délifrance initiated a partnership with 1-star Michelin Chefs, Laurent and Jacques Pourcel from France, in the creation of a special recipe to celebrate 30th Anniversary in Singapore.
The twins were born in Montpelier, in the south of France, and they run the famous restaurant in Montpellier, France and of course as well as restaurants in Bangkok, Shanghai, Tokyo, Geneva, Marrakech, Casablanca and Paris. The Pourcel brothers hold a reputation as two of the very best ambassadors of French fine food. In 2010, they were invited to represent French gastronomy in the French Pavilion at Shanghai World Expo.

Délifrance is the first French-theme café to introduce authentic French bakery products in Singapore and the launch of Le Paris-Singapore is dedicated to their long-time supporters who have grown up with the brands over the past 30 years. 
The Michelin sandwich, Le Paris-Singapore is available at selected Délifrance outlets at SGD10.80 (a la carte) for a limited period or paired with the sandwich with an exclusive Monin Sparkling Drink at only SGD12.80  

Apart from the Michelin sandwich, Délifrance has introduces a unique and refreshing selection of two specialties created sparkling drinks, Pink Grapefruit & Elderflower Spritz andLe Spicy Mangue Collins to enjoy with the limited edition Michelin sandwich created by France's famed 1-star Michelin Chefs, Laurent and Jacques Pourcel.
The special sparking drinks are available for a limited period at an a la carte price of SGD5 or paired with the Le Paris-Singapore sandwich at only SGD12.80 at selected Délifrance outlets.

Pink Grapefruit & Elderflower Spritz - An extremely light and refreshing combination of ripe pink grapefruit and subtle elderflower. 

Le Spicy Mangue Collins - A thirst quenching and Interesting blend of mango mad lime with a slight hint of chilli.

I attended the exclusive media session with Chef Jacques Pourcel at Delifrance Cafe at Habourfront Centre in conjunction of the Délifrance 30th Anniversary Celebration.
I had Le Spicy Mangue Collins (Spicy Mango) during the event, and the drink did complement the Michelin sandwich, Le Paris - Singapore pretty well. 

My friends and I had some light refreshments while waiting for the demonstration session to start.


Taking group photos or cam-whoring will never be omitted or voided in any events… Hahahaha!!  
I took pictures with lovely Cindy (:

Chef Jacques Pourcel was invited to grace the event and he flew in specially to kick off Delifrance's 30th Anniversary celebration with the launch of his special creation. He demonstrated the fine art of sandwich making and shares his inspiration during the presentation.
We were glad to create our very own Michelin sandwiches with the help of Chef Jacques Pourcel.
The ingredients needed for Le Paris-Singapore
French Rustic Baguette

Thai Chilli Sauce

Wakame (Japanese Algae)

French Baby Spinach

Roast chicken

Le Paris-Singapore is a mix of artisan French authentic bakery and an Asian flavour, which is a unique association between mayonnaise & oyster spread which bring roundness to the Thai chilli roast chicken and the tantalising taste is also reinforced by the Wakame (Japanese algae) and juicy pineapple slices as a whole.

Specially imported from France, the softness of Délifrance’s French rustic baguette adds on lightness and a delicate aroma of fresh cream and sweet almond to the whole creation.

We had fun making our sandwiches and I took this opportunity to take photos with renowned 1-star Michelin Chef, Jacques Pourcel.

I am glad to be part of the momentous occasion, and Happy Anniversary!!
Lastly, thanks Délifrance for the lovely colorful macarons and the kind hospitality!!
