Trout Tartare

Trout tartare

We discovered our trout tartare while staying overnight in France near the Lac d’Aiguebelette. In an excellent local restaurant there was “lake fish tartare” on the menu and it was delicious! We thought it would work with our trout at “Le Vieux Mouline” and so we asked our chef to make us a version of this dish when we got home... It’s nice to be able to try a fish tartare that is not the Red Tuna Tartare that you see everywhere... And, what is more, it uses a really local product ! (Christiane Boereboom)

Fruits and cereals are excellent sources of endurance energy! We therefore make sure our breakfast buffet contains plenty of them, in breads, pastries and these individual millet soufflés and in our marmelades, jams and fresh fruit straight from our garden. These millet soufflés can be served for breakfast or dessert. They are improved by serving with fruit jam (e.g. our Raspberry & Rhubarb) or some fresh fruit! (Cécile Voisin)
