The salicornia of anger!

For many years, the collectors of the Baie de Somme have organized themselves to preserve their craft.
After having obtained a diploma, the State granted them a concession in Baie de Somme on which they practice their activity. In order to favor the natural growth of the salicornias, they fight against the spartine (which retains the sand and smothers the salicornias) while carrying out harrowing work on the moliers.
Thanks to their valor, their mobilization and their determination, they have given letters of nobility to the Salicornes of the Baie de Somme and other marine plants.
Professional buyers are not mistaken, they say that those of the Bay of Somme are the best in the world ... without chauvinism since the biggest buyer is Dutch!

So, when you buy salicornia growers look closely at the provenance and prefer the Salicorne Bay Somme and processed products highlighting the origin Baie de Somme!

The "Crévecoeur" one of the new cheeses Terroirs Hauts-de-France

Settled in Grémévillers in the Oise, Anselme and Etienne Beaudoin have for many years produced Rollot, Tommes with hay and cider and Brays Picards from the milk of cows of their herd.

The "Crévecoeur" combines the power of blue marbled with the sweetness of a cheese made with milk of cow. On a plate, in a salad or even better in an omelette, I'm sure that the "Crévecoeur" will quickly conceal you. This cheese won a silver medal at the last local produce competition in La Capelle, a sign!

In Guiscard, the brothers Defossé are addicted in cheese

The Rollot, Tomme and Petit noyonnais of the brothers' Defossé have more and more followers. Four employees are now able to meet the growing demands.
At the Moulin farm, holidays do not exist. The Defossé cheese dairy  supplies not only communities, central kitchens and restaurants, but its products have also invaded supermarkets and hypermarkets. If it reigns on Picardy and even provides large communities in the Paris region, it is also possible to enjoy the direct sale on the farm. The recipe has even grown: "The cheese dairy building was enlarged at the beginning of the year to separate the different work and storage areas," says Marie, an employee. This cheese dairy allows to transform part of the milk produced on the farm, about 300 000 liters per year. The production has diversified since several years: butter, cream, cottage cheese, yogurt, but also cheese.
The Petit Noyonnais, the rollot and the tomme with fenugreek - a seed perfuming tomme with a small taste of nuts - have more and more regulars.
This Guiscard farm has existed since eight generations. François and Thomas Défossé took over the exploitation following their parents in 2008. François then decided to add a cheese dairy after his studies in the Jura. In addition to the two brothers, four people are employed at the cheese dairy and one at the farm. The breeding has nearly 80 dairy cows and 80 heifers, Montbéliardes in majority, having replaced the Holsteins over the years. They benefit from thirty hectares of pastures around the farm. The family farm also has 30 hectares for livestock feed and 80 hectares of sales culture.

"The color of the crust is natural"

It is in this context that were born the only cheese from Noyon. As soon as milk is received, the manufacturing starts in the morning, following different steps depending on the product. For cottage cheese and Petit Noyonnais, the curd must rest for 24 hours. For rollot and tomme, the production starts after two hours.
The maturation in cellar begins. For the Petit Noyonnais, created in 2012,  it lasts about ten days, with a passage of eight minutes in a brine bath. For tommes, ripening lasts for at least two months. They are rubbed with salt water twice a week. As for the rollot, if the ripening is shorter (four weeks), it undergoes the same technique of salting. Marie says: "The color of the crust is natural."
Yoghurt production requires about 500 liters of milk each morning. For their preparation, a new machine was bought. It allows to manufacture and package more than 2,000 pots per hour. The milk is heated for ten minutes and then cooled before the addition of a ferment. After a quarter of an hour, the potting takes place, then the oven drying at 45 ° C during four or five hours, it is an important step since it allows gelation. Yogurts are offered either plain or with fruits.
The two brothers and associates don't want to change the formula: "It has always been our desire to manage everything by ourselves".

Avocet continue to crisp for 14 years

Thirty bakeries of the Somme offer the avocette, baguette issued from maritime Picardie wheat.
A homemade baguette made from wheat produced, stored and crushed in Picardie maritime, in the only mill of the Somme, sold in Picardy maritime and in neighboring cantons: that's the avocet. On Wednesday, June 6th, the 14th general meeting of the association of the same name was held at the mill in question, the Riquier establishments, in Cahon, near Abbeville.
The adventure began in 2004, when farmers, bakers, millers and co-ops (Calypso and Noriap) joined forces in this adventure "from seed to plate", as summarized by Patricia Poupart, Regional Councilor. . In 2017, thirty bakeries offered avocet. "Since 2016, avocet is made from two varieties of wheat, Camp-Rémy and Apache," said Christian Lesenne, consulting engineer at the Chamber of Agriculture of the Somme, made available by the latter in as host of the association chaired by Hervé Denamps, farmer.

A baguette from sustainable agriculture 

"It was after the catastrophic harvest of 2016: there was not enough wheat Camp-Rémy, the traditional variety of avocet. The contribution of this new variety, which did not change anything to taste, makes the bakers present, and a better harvest last summer made more chopsticks: in 2017, 334,000 avocets were produced, which means that represents 25,000 baguettes per hectare of wheat grown, 905 quintals of wheat and 696 quintals of flour. In 2016, the "rotten" year, avocet production had mobilized only 604 quintals of wheat and 465 quintals of flour. As for the selling price, each baker is free to fix it. At the other end of the chain, the tonne of wheat cost, in 2017, 168 euros for Apache and 188 euros for Camp-Rémy, and the quintal (100 kg) of flour, 73 euros.
"This year, we will continue with both varieties," said Christian Lesenne, to smooth the consequences of possible bad harvests. The means to develop avocet are limited, for two main reasons: the competition of millers (30 share the bakery market of the Somme), the decrease in the number of bakeries in the department (currently, 200). To this is added a relatively small means of communication for the association. President Hervé Denamps reminded that bakers members had to make a simple effort: "It is not normal to see some sell the avocet in the bag of another brand. It's counterproductive, while 500 packets are delivered with every quintal of flour. " And it's a shame, because the baker has produced a baguette from sustainable agriculture, synonymous with a certain quality, fermented for more than twelve hours without adding activators, without fully promoting it.

EauBouLeau continues to pour sap in Bresle

Drinking water from birches has become trendy. Galiane de Poncins, which created three years ago EauBouLeau reaping the fruits of this success and intends to expand its production in 2018.

Three years already, that the birch sap flows in Méricourt-en-Vimeu, near Poix-de-Picardie. Initially, the company set up by Galiane de Poncins was simply trying to use the birches that were not used by his father's logging operations. The idea was to create an organic beverage, with phytotherapeutic virtues, from the sap of this tree that does not fit the criteria of firewood.

In 2018 other forest sites concerned
And since its creation in 2015, EauBouLeau has grown well. So much so that 2018 will mark a turning point for sap harvesting and production. There will be something new, according to the 28-year-old producer. "Since the very first harvest in March 2015, we only use birch sap from our site in Méricourt-en-Vimeu. 2018 will be an important year for us. The biggest novelty we will put in place is to use other forest sites than ours, "she says.

Galiane de Poncins has approached forest owners in the region and France with the idea of ??reaching 50,000 liters of sap harvested for its birch water. Thus, sites based in particular in the Marne will participate in the development of the final product. "Birch is a resource completely untapped by the majority of French owners. They use every possible plan to manage their farm but birches are often left out. EauBouLeau will change DNA and participate in the regeneration of the French forest. She said.
The last innovation of the year 2018 desired by the sylviculturist will concern small bottles of flavored birch water. "I want to launch infusions of birch water herbal to get out of the health and cure aspect. So that people also buy the product for the pleasure of drinking birch water."

Packaging closer to customers
Change, there will also be at the logistical level. Completed live deliveries for Galiane de Poncins. Since the end of 2017, she has decided to delegate the delivery of her bottles of sap. She is now using two distributors and looking for a third who delivers organic. The packaging of its bottles has also changed over time. It is now made with less cardboard and is more in line with the desire of end customers who advocate organic and respect for the environment.
A lawyer specializing in labor law training and mom since March 2017, Galiane de Poncins is now fully dedicated to his company. Thanks to it, the sap is not about to stop flowing in the Bresle Valley.

EauBouLeau is progressing 
Sap crops have experienced an impressive progressive evolution in 3 years of existence. Since 2015, date of creation of the detox drink, they have been muiltipliées by 4.6 liters.
3000 liters in 2015,
7,000 liters in 2016,
14,000 liters in 2017.
The goal is to reach 50,000 liters of sap for the 2018 harvest.
An app on Android
Very soon, an Android application, of the same name as the product, will go in this direction and will draw the birches. Using a flashcode, it will be possible to locate the birch of the vintage. A dream for Galiane de Poncins who is eager to "drink a bottle of EauBouLeau and know which tree the sap comes from and what is the day of the harvest."

The smoked eel in Saint-Christ-Briost reveals its secrets as a great chef

Denis Boulanger, owner of the eel smoker, reveals some secrets of the factory.

Perhaps you have already had the chance, the happiness, to go taste the kitchen of Christian Le Squer, great chef of the restaurant "Le V", at the Georges V palace in Paris, classified 3 stars in the Michelin Guide, five toques with Gault and Millau.
Perhaps you had the chance, the happiness, to taste the kitchen of Éric Frechon (born in Corbie), great chef of the restaurant "Epicure", at the palace Le Bristol in Paris, classified 3 stars in the Guide Michelin and four toques with Gault and Millau.
The relationship between these two great leaders? They are clients of the Saint-Christ-Briost smokehouse, specializing in eels and smoked trout.
At the controls, Denis Boulanger. "I am from a family of fishmongers in Haute-Somme, I have been a fisherman since 1980 and eel smoker since 1989".

Soon 30 years of work and experience that make him a specialist in fish smoking. "Here I smoke about two-thirds of eels and one-third of trout, which is done in three stages: evisceration and preparation, smoking and packaging."

A rare product that has become very popular 

First step, the eels arrive alive from the Loire or the Netherlands. "Since 2006 and PCB pollution, we are not allowed to market eels raised in the Haute-Somme. But we are hopeful that this ban will be lifted by the end of the year, "says Denis Boulanger, who kills fish, removes viscera and emptiness, before salting them.
They are then skewered and installed vertically in a smokehouse, over a fire. There, begins the second stage.
"It takes a soft wood, to have a bright fire and good coals, then covered with beech sawdust, which gives a finer taste and a specific color".
The operation lasts 5 hours, including 3 hours on soot, at a temperature ranging between 80 and 90ºC.

Once smoking is complete, they are packaged for sale to the customer. "I can prepare them, or not, it's on demand. Once out of the refrigerator, just remove the skin, which leaves all alone and reveals the flesh.
A delicious meat that makes the happiness of great cooks who do not hesitate to marry the product with, for example, foie gras. "Before, the eel was the dish of the poor, we ate often with potatoes. Today, with the scarcity of the product, it is sought after, highly sought after and prices have increased. It becomes a product used by the greatest chefs.
Like the smoked eel of the Somme, bread burnt and reduction of grape juice or the eel sautéed meunière with the muslin cress Éric Frechon.

The eel on the menu of Georges V in Paris 

On the menu of the restaurant "Le V" in Paris, you can read "Anguille smoke of the Somme, bread burnt and reduction of grape juice", dish created by Christian Le Squer, rated 3 stars in the Michelin Guide and 5 toques Gault and Millau. The maximum.

"I always kept in mouth the taste of a Bordeaux lamprey that was done when I worked at Jacques le Divillec (another great chef). One day, I wanted to work on eels. I had a kitchen clerk, who lived in the Somme, who told me he knew a small producer of smoked eels. I came to taste them and I thought. How can we recapture memories of this dish on the lamprey with an eel? When you put on a reduction Chinon, it comes to calm slightly the taste of the smell of eel. It allows to have a composition between the bread, the eel and the wine lees which is coherent. I added a small potato stuffed with a horseradish cream. All this gives a powerful structure.
