Langoustine mousse with sundried tomatoes and port – La Sablaise
Embark on the Mediterranean with this creamy foam where the langoustine meets the dried tomato and the port. A perfect balance and full of sun! La Sablaise benefits from the MSC label (which distinguishes sustainable seafood).
Kouign Amann -Biscuiterie Merlin
The Merlin biscuit factory is a family and artisanal company specializing in the making of Breton cookies and pastries. The Kouign amann, the Breton pastry par excellence. In Breton, Kouign amann means « butter cake ». Before tasting it, heat your oven to 200 ° C, turn it off once it is hot and let the Kouign Amann heat 5 to 10 minutes in the oven.
Piquillo peppers Espelette pepper – Pierre Augé for Rue Traversette
A spicy recipe 100% southwest! Delicious red peppers with slightly sweet notes cooked with small Espelette peppers. A real treat for aperitifs in bread or also in the kitchen on meats or fish. A recipe signed Pierre Augé.
Calvados croquet – Biscuiterie de Quinville
Very local cookie decorated with almonds and grapes macerated in Calvados. Sprinkled with Calvados straight out of the oven and then dried. Here is a cookie that tells you about the country over coffee. Master pastry chef since 1986, Alain Mélique, with his wife, ensures traditional manufacturing using products from the Normandy region.
Ostrich sausage – Sausage from the Monts du Lyonnais
Ostrich meat is tender and tasty. It gives this sausage a pleasant texture and excellent flavor. The sausages are made in the family salting which was created more than 80 years ago. It is located in Grézieu le Marché, in the heart of the Monts du Lyonnais, a noble and authentic land par excellence. To keep it as good as possible, we recommend that you put it in a towel in the fridge.
Roger & Christophe Moreux « Les Bouffants », Sancerre
Domaine Roger et Christophe Moreux is a family estate (one of the oldest families in Sancerrois). Here we have a fine, fresh and elegant white Sancerre. On the palate, it is round and full, with notes of smoke, citrus and blackcurrant buds. The whole is delicious and greedy. The finish is tangy with citrus notes and lots of freshness.
We hope that this March box will please you! So, rather sweet with Kouign Amann or salty with lobster mousse with port and sun-dried tomatoes? Tell us everything! 🤩
