For a third consecutive year, SBS’s culinary shorts Plat du Tour, hosted by French chef Guillaume Brahimi, will run in conjunction with coverage of the Tour de France.

The series will include 21 recipes that correspond to the various tour stages and come from various parts of France, Copenhagen, Switzerland, and Belgium. In 10-minute episodes, Brahimi demonstrates quick and simple cooking techniques for viewers.

Recipes include Langoustine and Truffle Pasta from the ancient city of Saint Gaudens, Raclette Savoyarde, a cheesy treat from the alps, Le Welsh (Croque monsieur du Nord) a French take on the ‘Welsh rabbit’, and Tourte des Pyrénées aux Myrtilles, a blueberry torte from the heart of the Pyrenees.

Plat du Tour segments will be available for catch-up on SBS Food Online and SBS On Demand and will air as special episodes on SBS Food after the 2022 Tour de France is complete. Plat du Tour is produced by Blink TV for SBS.
