Covering 3,328 kilometres across 23 days, Tour de France is no doubt, one of the toughest races on the calendar for cyclists around the world.  It will also be a challenging few weeks for the Tour de France fans of Australia, with many sleepless nights in front of the telly. So here are some selection of fast, pain-free snacks to accompany you, road-tested by team at SBS Food.

Salty caramel and Brazil nut popcorn

It takes 5 minutes to cook the caramel and it’s the only way to get that candied crunch on these clusters. The trick is to work through quickly, on a roasting tray rather than a bowl for an even coat.

Cavolo nero and chilli chips

You will be amazed at how quickly you can munch through these kale chips. Remember to keep your eyes on the oven and take them out when you start to see the change in texture (around 5 minutes) and serve immediately. 

Kunyit (turmeric) fried chicken

This recipe by Poh Ling Yeow is super simple to put together, yet it serves as an excellent casual starter or finger food. A perfect beer snack too!

Comté cheese fondue (fondue au comté)

Enjoy Tour de France, while dipping your crusty bread into this comté fondue. You will need a good-size fondue pot for this recipe. If you drop the bread, "do a dare" says Luke Nguyen.

Rich coconut chai

A hot drink is a must when staying up to watch Tour de France on a cold winter night. Once you have tried this recipe, you won't be able to go back to your instant selections. 

Paris mash

Because really, what can't be made better with potato? Guillaume's silky, buttery Parisienne version will have you scooping for seconds.

Potato mash is both satisfying and easy to make.

Smoked salmon croque monsieur

Take your next toastie to the seaside with this smoky salmon variation. Top with roe, or just a little extra grated cheese.

These little French cakes cook quickly and are best eaten very fresh. Like any baked good they are ideally eaten still-warm. Bake between ad-breaks for a win-win.
