Menus

We prepare our dishes almost exclusively with produce from our own garden and local organic producers, with herbs and spices from around the world to add an occasional exotic touch. Here are just a few examples (recipes vary according to the availability of ingredients and the chef's whims and fancies). We rarely prepare a dish the same way each time we make it.

Our local organic food suppliers

  Much of the food we serve at breakfast and dinner and in our picnics comes from local organic producers. The organic bread, for example, is made in Kerbors by Cantale and Pascal Daniel, who also grow their own wheat and mill their own flour. We use their flour to make our own pastries and cakes.

Our vegetables come mainly from the Bechet family farm at Keradern in neighbouring Trédarzec, from the Rousseau family farm in Pont Guen and from the Daniels at the Kermellou organic farm in Ploëzal.

Brittany milk isn't suitable for making hard cheeses because the fat content is too high due to the lush grass that the cows and sheep eat, but we sometimes get an excellent organic sheep cheese from the Bergerie at Landerbaeron. The cream and soft cheeses come from the Wern Farm in Ploubèzre, and we should warn you that their double cream is 50% fat.

You know that Brittany is famous for it’s apple juice and cider, which is rather like English scrumpy. We have two main suppliers, the Cidrerie Côte des Bruyères in Trédrez-Locquémeau and the Verger du Guindy in Pluzunet (don't you just love these strange names?). If you don't like cider, then try the dark beer, which comes from the Brasserie Kérampont in Lannion.

Most of our pork comes from the Ferme de Foreschou in Le Vieux Marché. The rest of our meat comes from one of our three local organic butchers. We buy everything else we serve, except for what comes from our own garden or from our neighbours' garden, at local farmers' markets, in our local BioCop organic supermarkets, from wine merchants or in the organic section of our local supermarkets.
