Continental Båstad – Home of "Tennisbakelsen"

Author: Johanna Nadjafi, Continental Båstad.

In the summer of 2021, my husband and I opened the doors to Anrika Continental Båstad. We turned the old café into a French bistro and with that my goal was to create an experience in service and flavors. A tennis cake was a given to bring out, after all, we have a bistro in the tennis capital Båstad. I wanted to create a freshness that suits both coffee and dessert after the meal, the ball is a fresh lemon mousse with yellow cocoa around it. At Christmas 2022, the tennis ball was released, pre-bookings for the tennis week came immediately.

Båstad is known for its tennis, and reinforcing that in our concept meant that we created a "kiosk tumbler", which we could not meet the demand for this summer. Everyone would have a tennis cake in July. Guests came with coolers to buy the tennis pastries, remember several who went from the Helsingborg area who were so disappointed that they were sold out. A common text message in July was: "Do you have tennis pastries left today?".

Now for Christmas we are releasing a limited edition of the Christmas tennis ball and next summer I will release...
