"I think that each one of my dishes provides a harmonious combination of flavours that are weaved into every composition and menu that I create. My delicate and refined cuisine will take you on an amazing journey through nature from your very first bite.
Discover my passion for yourself with these suggestions for using wild plants in your cooking.
Garlic mustard: Use this in gravy to add a subtle garlic flavour. Ideal for adding flavour to Aligot, a French dish made from potatoes and cheese.
Cow parsnip: Use this when making caramel. It adds a subtle citrus flavour, and is ideal for accompanying Ségala Veal.
Purple betony: This can be added to soups from April to October. This plant looks like a nettle and has a characteristic musky smell when rubbed between the fingertips. Try it in a consommé.
Ground ivy: Great in custard. Its lemony, minty flavour goes perfectly with chocolate desserts.
Sweet clover: This plant has a subtle vanilla taste to add flavour to mousses, cream, etc.
Douglas fir: This plant’s surprising lemony flavour adds a unique taste to cream, the perfect accompaniment to Fontaine du Larzac salmon.
Plantain: Has a green nutty taste, which is very pleasant in salads.
Elderflower: These flowers, cooked in tempura batter and with a slight Muscat flavour, go nicely with Fario d’Estaing trout."
