BLUEBERRY: THE SUPERFOOD THAT HAS IT ALL

Wild or shrubby, the blueberry is along with the apple, the emblematic fruit of the region. We can, depending on our desires, choose to buy it on local markets or improvise a gourmet family outing for picking on the farm. Plain, in jam, in pie, cookie… this little fruit, which grows very well on mountain ranges, is very popular in summer.

Excellent for health, Vaccinium myrtillus is rich in C vitamin and A provitamin, which has the property of increasing visual acuity.

RECIPE

Blueberry French toast

For 6 persons

  • 12 slices of brioche or bread
  • 4 eggs
  • 60 cl of milk
  • 80 g sugar
  • 20 cl of blueberry cream
  • 220 g blueberries
  • Butter
  • Cinnamon

Combine eggs, milk, sugar and cinnamon. Dip the brioche slices in this mixture. Brown the brioche slices in the pan with a little butter. In another pan, brown the blueberries and add the blueberry cream. Take a slice of brioche, garnish with the blueberry mixture and put another slice on top.

Chef’s tip: This dessert is delicious accompanied by a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

1000 CABOSSES

Behind “1000 Cabosses” hides the chocolate maker François Fressinaud, a young science professor freshly converted to the delight of the taste buds! In 2015, he moved to Vallière, in the heart of the Plateau de Millevaches and opened his shop where he created a whole range of sweets in dark, milk or white chocolate: candies, assortments, casts and tablets. He works with chocolates from all over the world: Cuba, Indonesia, Madagascar, Venezuela and even Sao Tome…  We love his bees, Limousin cows, otters (emblematic animal of the Millevaches Park) or his signature chocolate “SMAL”, (abbreviation for Saint Marc à Loubaud, the village where he is from) a blueberry fruit paste in a half-sphere of dark chocolate.
The shop is open from Tuesday to Saturday in the afternoons, the rest of the week 1000 Cabosses is on the road and settles in the heart of the markets of Felletin, Bourganeuf, Guéret…

« LE CREUSOIS » cake

Pure butter, with hazelnuts, « Le Creusois » is a soft and tender cake. It is the perfect companion for tea, coffee, or all kinds of desserts ‘ice cream, custard, red berries…). It can also be tasted alone, or with a white wine from Alsace, suc as Gewurztraminer. The original recipe is a secret for most of us, only a few from Creuse have the gourmet pleasure of owning it. According to the legend, the recipe for this delicious pastry was translated from a 15th century parchment found in the ruins of a monastery in Crocq region, East of Creuse.

Mini Creusois (assortment of 10), Creusois in a box (6-8 people), Creusois in tiles with it’s suitcase or giant Creusois (1.20m diameter on order), all the reasons are good to taste this emblematic pastry from Creuse.
