The Romans who felT veRy much aT home heRe built theaters that are still used today. The popes built a palace and planted vineyards. many feudal lords built châteaux and embellished them with terraces and gardens, where the good life flourishes still. under the Provencal sunshine, the farmers channeled the water of the springs to grow fruit throughout the summer. and in the dark cool cellars, the vintners keep an eye on the aging wine. writers find inspirational solitude. actors singers and dancers gather applause from an enthusiastic audience. so why do we claim that the name vaucluse means “closed valley“… closed to who? I see vaucluse wide open to lovers of Provencal nature, the sun and the cicadas, lovers of rich, deeply-rooted history, of gourmand adventures and the art of living a gentle lifestyle.

Organic farming in the Vaucluse

8

Vaucluse county has a dynamic organic farming sector. There are 618 ic farms in Vaucluse, which makes it the number one county in the PACA region for farms which have made the transition to organic food production. Vaucluse is the number 3 county in all of France for organic food. The effective organicallyfarmed agricultural area in Vaucluse came to 11.4 % in 2010 whereas the national average for the same period was only 3 %. In Vaucluse this means 13,776 hectares that are organically farmed or in the process of conversion. This is a +32.9 % increase over 2009. Geo-climatic diversity in Vaucluse allows for a wide range of farm production throughout the county, including fruits, vegetables, wine, grains, aromatic plants and medicinal plants, animal-raising… Vaucluse is a major vinegrowing county too, with 6,809 hectaresnof vineyards. Here too organic methods are increasing, and 49 % of the farmed area is currently in the conversion

process . Aromatic and medicinal plants account for 5 % of farm production with 659 hectares dedicated to such plants. Animal-raising primarily involves poultry, sheep and goats. The organic association Agribio Vaucluse is a non-profit association which groups together 170 organic farmers in all sectors. The association emphasises local channels of distribution and focuses on productive exchange between growers and consumers.

Meet in the fields For over 20 years Rose has been keeping an eye on sheep, pigs and hens, on her aromatic herb crop, her vineyard, orchard and vegetable garden. A colourful, bustling world that has kept her busy on the Oiselet Farm in Sarrians, a 25-hectare farm that primarily grows vines, farmed organically and with passion by her vine-growing husband. Going around the farm with Rose means bending down to pluck a leaf, taste a plant, feel, touch, smell and generally marvel at the work of nature. At Oiselet Farm, the atmosphere vibrates with life, carefully maintained yet free and overflowing. Countless shades of green surround you. Tender fresh almonds, the enormous leaf of the “mammoth basil plant”, the heart-shaped leaves of the Kiwi. Rose tells the story of a dream become reality, bit by bit, plant by plant, by sheer dint of hard work and perseverance. Seven people work full time on the farm, and in the high season there can be up to 20 people to work with the visiting families, offering gardening workshops, cooking classes using farm plants, spinning and braiding demonstrations, or harvesting the old-fashioned way… Domaine de l’Oiselet 124 chemin des garrigues de l’étang Mme Rose Combe T. /F. 04 90 65 57 57 www.oiselet.com 9

Wines

September. On the steps to the Palace of the Popes in Avignon, the harvest ban is proclaimed. The careful choreography of the grape harvesters begins, tractors coming and going, on the country roads, between cellars and vineyards of the Rhône valley. From its towering 1912 meter altitude, Mont Ventoux overlooks the vineyards which bear its name. The rounded back of the Luberon range huddles over its vineyards, protecting them from the mistral wind. At twilight, when the suave scent of the vintages to come fills the evening air, Châteauneuf-du-Pape gives back to the soil the heat stored by the pebbles which protect its vines, warming the last clusters of grapes to go into the symphony of 13 varieties which can make up the powerful reds and delicate, ample whites. Soon the wine will start aging in the beautiful Chateauneuf bottle, struck with the Pontifical coat of arms “2 intersecting keys, Saint Peter’s keys, indeed, the keys to paradise”.

Three appellations:

aoc côtes du Rhône – aoc ventoux – aoc luberon

Appellations AOC Côtes du Rhône AOC Ventoux AOC Luberon Crus classés Châteauneuf-du-Pape Gigondas Beaumes de Venise Rasteau Vacqueyras

Rasteau Gigondas Vacqueyras Beaumes de Venise Châteauneuf-du-Pape

In Vaucluse, the Côtes du Rhône vineyards are the largest A.O.C. producers. The appellation sub-divides into regional Côtes du Rhône wines comprised of Côtes du Rhône Villages - Cairanne, Valréas, Roaix, Sablet, Séguret, Visan and Gadagne - and 4 grands crus, Châteauneufdu-Pape, Beaumes de Venise (that received the label “Site Remarquable du Goût” in 2006), Vacqueyras, Rasteau and Gigondas. Beaumes-de-Venise and Rasteau has proudly borne the A.O.C. label “Vin Doux Naturel”. The greater part of the Vaucluse vineyards stretch over an area bordered by the towns of Valréas, Bollène, Avignon and the Dentellesde-Montmirail. The wide variety of soils is one of the keys to the originality of the Côtes du Rhône wines. Here in the Rhone valley there are many different terroirs, with sand, limestone, sandstone, and round river pebbles rubbed smooth by the flowing waters of the Rhône. Red wine accounts for 95% of the production, and white and rosé account for 3% each. For the red wines, the most widely used

varieties are Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault. The calcareous soils in Vaucluse, along with the hot and dry Mediterranean climate are also very conducive to producing the pleasant, smooth wines found in the A.O.C. Ventoux and the A.O.C. Luberon appellations. The A.O.C.Ventoux appellation, covers 51 towns, from Puyméras to Apt and including Carpentras, which is 6236 hectares. Here, red wines account for 68% of the production, rosés wine for 28% and the remainder in white. Looking now at the A.O.C. Luberon, they cover 3200 hectares of vineyards growing on land in 36 different towns, all of which are located in the confines of the Luberon Regional Natural Park.

welcome to the farm

This “living museum” is an absolutely unique venue, ideal for fun and learning, entirely dedicated to fruits and vegetables it explains from the seed to the processed product.

The label “Bienvenue à la Ferme” is a registered French label managed by the County Chamber of Agriculture and symbolized by a “little flower” which indicates a member of the Quality Charter.

The exhibition changes with the seasons and is completed by a discovery trail in the vegetable garden and orchard that takes visitors to the heart of the living world of fruits and vegetables. On more than 8,000m², the trail is punctuated with 7 stages: - sensory immersion - images and stories from all five continents - what is a fruit and what is a vegetable? - fruits and vegetables in our diet - from culinary practices to industrial processes - the diversity of varieties, past and present - farming practices outdoors and in greenhouses Seasonal products and Provençal varieties naturally have a very special place in the garden where hundreds of varieties of fruits and vegetables are displayed. Throughout the tour, all five senses are stimulated by interactive activities intended to promote a lively concrete approach to fruits and vegetables. See the transparent beehive in the garden, where you can watch the fascinating work of a bee colony. The Epicurium also offers an annual programme of workshops and activities for everyone around a Chef or a gardener, lecture cycles, meetings with producers, special activities for children… Open for individual clients (late March to early November) From Monday to Friday: 10am-12:30 ; 2pm-6:30pm Saturday, Sunday and holidays: 2pm - 6:30pm

Truffles When November rolls around, throughout the winter and up until the middle of March – that’s truffle season, when the fragrant black truffle – rabasse in the Provencal language – thrives. Truffles grow at the base of Mont Ventoux, in the Luberon and in the Papal Enclave – here in Vaucluse, the truffle is the object of something close to worship. There are truffle markets. There is the Truffle harvesting proclamation. Truffles even fill the collection basket at a very special truffle Mass in Vaucluse. Truffle markets in the winter months draw chefs from far and wide. Although truffles are often referred to as being from Perigord, the truth is that 70% of the truffles in France come from Vaucluse. The term truffle “de Perigord” is a botanical name, and in no way a geographical description. Indeed, 70% of the black truffles sold in France come from Vaucluse markets. .

olive oil mills in operation

Olives The dominant variety in Vaucluse is the “Aglandau” variety, also called “Verdale de Carpentras”. This variety provides a very flavorful oil, with hints of artichoke and almond (A.O.C. Huile d’olive de Haute Provence). Toward the north of Vaucluse, you find the variety called “La Tanche”, with a round, fleshy fruit which wrinkles up when ripe, and provides excellent black table olives. This variety is also protected by a guaranteed label, called an appellation d’origine contrôlée (A.O.C. olive de Nyons). This label, a guarantee of quality, covers 18 towns in Vaucluse. Since 2006, the new AOC “olive oil from Provence” includes 115 towns in Vaucluse in the Ventoux and Luberon areas. www.huile-olive-provence.fr

olive oil mills as they were in the past

They belong to the “blood mill” category, where the energy required to press the olive came from animals or man turning the grinding wheel. These “moulins à sang” are no longer used today. Both operated up until the 1920-1930’s.

Tapenade This dish often accompanied the harvesters into the fields, where they made a meal of the olives blended into a puree with anchovies and capers with olive oil. Today tapenade is most often served on slices of toasted bread. It is the “caviar” of Provence, and can also be made with green olives.

Did you know?

A tree produces between 15 and 50 kilos of olives. It takes four to five kilos of olives to make 1 litre of oil.

advice from the master miller Always choose “extra virgin olive oil”, (huile d’olive vierge extra) with its flawless taste and acidity under 1%. Keep away from light and heat (at approximately 180oC), and use the oil within the year. That way, it remains at the peak of its flavor. The benefits of olive oil are best when used raw. However, contrary to what is often heard, olive oil is the best oil to use for deep-frying.

Garlic

Garlic growers are concentrated in 14 towns between Orange and Avignon, and the town of Piolenc is the garlic capital. Two types of garlic are grown – the white, autumn garlic (Messidrome) and the purple, autumn garlic whose skin varies from red to copper tints. Here the varieties are Primor, Sprint and Germidour. Garlic can be harvested by machine or by hand, and at different times: - green, from mid April to late May, depending on the varieties - half-dry, from late May to mid-June, depending on the varieties - dry, for long-keeping, from mid-June to mid-July. To dry the garlic, the bulbs are left a few days in the field, with the tall stalks pulled over the bulbs of garlic to protect them from the sun. The garlic is then gathered into bunches, and stored in dry, airy rooms.

aïgo Boulido

It is customary the day after a heavy meal to “take a breather”. In Provence, people simply drink “Aïgo Boulido” (boiled water). An adage declares: “L'aïgo-boulido sauvo la vido" (boiled water saves lives). Ingredients: 1 litre of water, 5 crushed garlic cloves, 1 bay leaf, 1 sprig of medicinal sage, 2 egg yolks, 1 slice of toast per person (optional), olive oil, salt, pepper. Recipe: Split the garlic cloves in 2 and crush with the blade of the knife laid flat. Put the water and garlic in a saucepan with salt, and a little olive oil. Bring to a boil, add the bay leaf and sage, then cook for 15 min. Remove the garlic, then add in the soup bowl, while stirring, the two beaten egg yolks. Serve with slices of toasted bread, if you like.

Strawberries from Carpentras Strawberry growing developed around Carpentras as early as the late nineteenth century, when it replaced the failing silk and madder-dye industries. The four varieties of the Carpentras brand - serving the finest tables around - are the Pajaro, Agatha, and Ciflorette (perfect in pastries) plus the Garriguette, which has the loveliest aroma of all.

Did you know? Strawberries are not a fruit! Strawberries are actually pseudocarps, also known as false fruit or accessory fruit. The true fruits of the strawberry plant are actually the small seeds, or achenes, found on the outer surface.

Meet in the fields In Pernes-les-Fontaines, Alexandre Fligeat raises all his fruits and vegetables in the field, perpetuating the family tradition. “Here, we are in the Golden Triangle for growing strawberries, between Carpentras, Pernes and Monteux. The terroir is ideal. Indeed, this part of the Vaucluse countryside is a series of fields and greenhouses as far as the eye can see. I taste ripe fruit, freshly picked. Three varieties of strawberries are grown here: Cléry, fairly prolific, totally sweet and somewhat crisp; Garriguette, smaller, very fragrant and slightly acidulous; and Dély, a new variety which is quite big, sweet and fragrant. In the greenhouses it is hot and very humid – over 30° on this soft spring day. The heady scent of the strawberries sends me into a dream world full of clouds of whipped cream, strawberry shortcake and strawberry ice cream… Mme Fligeat has given us a few pointers on how best to enjoy the strawberries – she suggests nice and ripe in a strawberry salad with just a drizzle of olive oil and a hint of vanilla – and the strawberry will be at its best!

With nearly 2,700 hectares of cherry trees, and an annual harvest of approximately 14,500, Vaucluse is right at the top of French production. Nearly 45% of the cherry crop goes to the candied fruit industry. The rest is gobbled up, fresh and juicy. Cherry orchards are most often planted on slightly sloping fields, at the base of Mont Ventoux, in the Nesque river valley, the Venasque hills and in the Luberon, primarily in the Calavon river valley. Cherries are harvested from mid-May to early July. The top of the line French cherry is indeed the “Cerise des Monts de Venasque”, juicy and fleshy – the very best. 2,000 tons of Cerise des Monts de Venasque are harvested in 21 towns in the in the Comtat Venaissin-Mont Ventoux area. A road sign identifies these cherry-producing towns !

Black Fig from Caromb The Long Black Fig of Caromb, also known as Douqueira Negra or Perroquine, is a variety of large elongated fig that is very sweet with a potent delicious flavour. It has fine skin of a lovely deep violet-blue and rosy-red flesh. Juicy and tasty, it holds up well and has remarkable qualities in terms of preservation. The Long Black Fig of Caromb is generous and can be harvested twice a year, first in early July, then again around 20 August. In the South, production of long black figs of Caromb amounts to some 100 metric tons of fruit. Just in Vaucluse, this production capacity should double very soon to reach 40 metric tons, thereby propelling the Vaucluse to 3rd place for fig production in France.

The Petit Epeautre from Haute Vaucluse is also known as the “wheat of the Gauls”, or “engrain”. It is a rustic, hardy plant which grows best on poor soils, akin to those lavender likes. In Vaucluse, Petit Epeautre is grown between the Luberon and the Sault highlands. Fields of spelt stretch side by side with fields of lavender blue. The specifications for the spelt crop are quite strict, for spelt benefits from a “Protected Geographic Identification” which guarantees its origins and qualities. Petit Epeautre from Haute Provence has extremely high nutritional value, much better than other grains. Long abandoned as a crop, this little spelt has come back into the spotlight, and is sought after by chefs and fine diners alike. www.petitepeautre.com www.petitepeautre.com

Spelt medieval festival in MONIEUX

Did you know? Spelt (petit épeautre in French) has much greater nutritional value than other grains. Protein content is high, but the big difference comes from the magnesium content – for spelt contains 4 times more magnesium than brown rice.

Meet in the fields On the Sault highlands, I met one of the apostles of spelt. “Not all that long ago, the older generation wanted nothing to do with spelt” young farmer Guillaume Liardet told me. Spelt is a rustic, nutritional variety of wheat which has proved itself again and again in Provencal gastronomy. Spelt is used in soups, risotto, salad, bread and other dishes. It has fantastic taste and it is not all that rustic after all. Many chefs have caught on and use it very creatively and deliciously. Guillaume grows ten hectares of spelt near his lavender fields, where he raises lavender for distillation. Growing spelt enables him to diversify his production. Plus spelt presents the advantage of restoring and cleansing the soil. In his field of ripe spelt, the fine ears nod in the warm breeze, blanched by the sun. Spelt harvest takes place tomorrow, and a few beautiful sheaves of spelt will go to the September Spelt Festival in Monieux.

The “miller weath” from Apt In 1985, the technicians working with the Luberon Regional Natural Park discovered seeds for the wheat known as the "blé meunier d’Apt” in the barn of a retired farmer in the village of Buoux. Miller wheat from Apt, also called “touselle blanche de Pertuis”, used to be grown in the Apt basin, in the Luberon and in Haute Provence. The older generation retains strong memories of the quality of the bakery goods and breads made with this wheat. The special label "Pain du Luberon" is now a registered trademark. This is a very healthy bread that gluten-intolerant persons can eat. It is currently made by 9 bakers who are members of the quality charter.

Aromatic herbs The appellation “Herbes de Provence” has unfortunately often been overused, and the blends and origins of the herbs themselves could be highly varied. Now, there is a “Label Rouge”, in existence since late 2003, which governs the label “Herbes de Provence” and guarantees top quality in the blend, without necessarily guaranteeing origin. The Label Rouge blend consists of 19% thyme, 26% rosemary, 26% sarriette, 26% oregano and 3% basil. The choice of plants, strict production methods and the drying process ensure top quality.

Did you know? In the past, aromatic herbs were strewn along the path the royal coach was to take. It was thought that dried thyme and rosemary protected the monarch from the plague or other illnesses.

Pistou For 6 persons 20 cl good quality olive oil 2 bunches of basil 4 garlic cloves Salt A mortar and pestle is best – and of course a blender is easier ... Stem the basil leaves. Crush or chop the garlic. Add the basil leaves and a pinch of salt to the garlic. Crush with the mortar and pestle, or blend. Add the olive oil. Chill. Info : the word Pistou comes from the Latin word pestare which means to crush with a pestle. Pistou is a condiment in Provencal cuisine and goes into the famous “soupe au pistou”. Be sure to remove any germinating green sprout from the garlic, and blanch the garlic a few seconds in boiling water if it is too strong.

a Provencal cook’s advice: Gather the basil early in the morning in spring and summer. When you buy basil in a shop, buy it in transparent film so you can see that it has good green colour and that no dust falls to the bottom of the packaging when you shake it.

Meet in the fields In Provence, basil is commonly grown in our vegetable gardens, or on the balcony for city dwellers. Basil brings great freshness that goes with the greatest vegetables, tomatoes and aubergines, and it scents Soupe au Pistou, without a doubt a local gastronomic treasure. In the village of Roussillon, in the Luberon, La Ferme aux Basilics is devoted to basil. In summer, you can see up to 30 varieties – each one with a fabulous scent. At La Ferme aux Basilics, I met Catherine Pisani, a collector and grower of basil. She took me to gather a few leaves in a small patch that seemed to be a true basil conservatory. An impressive variety of basil spread humbly at my feet – lots of colours, lots of delicate aromas… Catherine was first intrigued by the medicinal properties of basil some 15 years ago when she fell in love with basil. “Basil is acknowledged to be a powerful anti-depressant”, said Catherine, “like chocolate”. She described chocolate-basil ganache, and leaves of the Giant from Genoa, a variety of enormous basil, confite in dark chocolate – great for chasing the cobwebs and increasing the zygomatics. Catherine Pisani has compiled her knowledge and some sumptuously simple recipes, such as her famous Summer Vegetable Soup with Pistou, in a delicious cookbook entitled “Petit traité savant du basilic” published by Équinoxe.

Melon from Cavaillon There are many chapters to the story of the melon from Cavaillon, and nearly as many varieties! The most popular however, the one which has contributed to the glory of Cavaillon today, is the Cantaloup or Charentais variety, which has been grown since 1925. The Cantaloup or Charentais variety can have smooth skin or “embroidered” skin, and can be grown in greenhouses or open fields. It is the only French melon whose growing period stretched from May to September. The melons are harvested by hand, gently and delicately. Growers and packer-shippers have worked together in recent years to obtain the “Protected Geographic Indication” label for the “Melon de Cavaillon”. Melon from Cavaillon is enjoyed as a starter, dessert or sherbet, with prosciutto or lovely Muscat de Beaumes de Venise wine. Melon is most often served raw, but can also be candied and is widely used by the candied fruit makers in the Apt area, particularly to make the calisson candy, a specialty of Aix en Provence. www.melondecavaillon.com

Business founded in 1866. This former melon trade establishment was transformed into a splendid restaurant in 1981, under the name “Maison du Melon”, also known as the “little melon museum” for the homage it pays to the local crop. Fat golden melons, full of sunshine and sugar, turn into countless creative dishes under the direction of this skilled, magician-like chef.

Did you know? The "Summer Mac Prévost," a burger with melon, created by Chef Jean Jacques Prevot in Cavaillon. This is a slice of bread spread with a seed melon-based ketchup and amazing layers, chopped artichokes and basil pesto, crisp lettuce, topped with foie gras. Topped with a parmesan wafer and two slices of the famous Cavaillon melon.

Tips from a cavaillon housewife To select a good melon, first trust your nose. A ripe melon should exude a light fragrance. Then, it should be heavy. If it slightly cracked at the stem end, this is a good sign of ripeness. If the remaining stem is ready to break off easily, this also indicates ripeness 45

Le Safran du Ventoux

It was with the arrival of the Popes in the 14th century that saffron (Crocus sativus) was introduced to the Vaucluse and grown intensively at the foot of Mont Ventoux. In the following centuries, the Vaucluse became the main producer in France, with over 160 “safraniers” (saffron growers) in Carpentras in the 17th century. The delicate farming of this precious spice disappeared in the course of the 19th century, only to be reinstated today thanks to five producers.

Purple Muscat from Ventoux Though of course you know that the vineyards in Vaucluse are famous for the wines they produce, did you also know that table grapes too are justly famous in their own right. Today, Vaucluse produces more than 50 % of the entire French production of table grapes, and is the number one French grower, with over 32,000 tons grown in Vaucluse. Among the many varieties, the most prestigious table grape produced in Vaucluse is the outstanding “Muscat du Ventoux”, with its delicate, captivating flavour. The rigourous work done by the grape growers was rewarded in 1997 with the bestowing of the AOC Muscat du Ventoux label, a distinction further reinforced by the European Union in 1999, when they awarded an AOP

(Protected Origins Appellation) label. Production of the AOC Muscat du Ventoux is concentrated on the slopes of Mont Ventoux and the Calavon river valley. Fifty-six towns are part of the Appellation area which covers 1200 hectares and 250 producers. The natural sweet Muscat du Ventoux is made solely from the grape variety known as Muscat de Hambourg. The grapes ripen from late August to early October. The grape clusters are delicately cut with shears and gently packed on trays in the field, so as to preserve the bloom that covers the grapes and is part of their quality.

Cristallized fruits Candied fruit making is an art which requires special skills, patience and care. The fruits are selected from among the most flawless the orchard has to offer. First they are blanched, then they are plunged into a sulfur bath and in boiling sugar. At this step, they undergo 7 successive steps in boiling syrup, to gradually replace the fruit’s water with sugar. Apricots, figs, greengage plums, tangerines, melons, bigarreaux cherries, pears... These delightful sweets were distinguished by the National Board of Culinary Arts, under the label “Fruits confits d’Apt”, and earned Apt the title of one of the 100 Remarkable Good Taste Sites in France.

Berlingots The Berlingot is a tiny sweet in the shape of a cube, or dice. Its name is said to come from the game of jacks, or “osselets” which was called berlingaù in Provençal. A lovely legend attributes the origins of this candy to the pastry maker for Pope Clement V (Bertrand de Got). At any rate, a more recent origin is also known, that of a pastry chef/candy maker born in Carpentras in the 1800’s. He thought up the idea of using the left-over syrup from his candied fruits to make a candy. In 1962, there were 5 companies making the Berlingot in Carpentras. Today, there remains only one.

The Berlingot is actually a caramel, in that it is cooked sugar. It is a hard, translucent candy that is colored and striped with white. Berlingots are entirely made by hand. The syrup is blended with the sugar and is heated to 150oC. The resulting paste is poured onto an oiled marble slab, flavored and colored. The roll of candy paste is then folded with a thin ribbon of white sugar. The paste is hung from a hook and pulled, stretched and re-folded so that the white sugar ribbon runs all through it. It is then rolled into strips, and cut into its traditional shape with the “Berlingotière”, a machine which was invented in the late 19th century to imitate the cut made with scissors.

Honey The bees move with the changing flowers of the seasons, and each area contributes shades of taste. While the cicadas sing away, the bees are working. In March-April, honey comes from rosemary and thyme. In May, you find “allflower” honey. In July and August beekeepers are busy harvesting the subtly flavored lavender honey, with its unequaled taste. Lavender honey is truly one of the best symbols of Provence. After the transhumance, you find acacia flower honey, oak honey, or mountain honey.

Honey Festivities in GOULT 50

a provençal Bee says

There are two “label rouge” awarded to honey from Provence. One distinguishes honey made from many different flowers, and is called “miel toutes fleurs de Provence”, and the other is honey made from lavender flowers, called “miel de lavande”. These two types of honey should be preferred to honey from many different origins, labeled “origines diverses”!

Nougat A heady smell of honey fills the air... for nougat is being made. When the nougat is white, it is soft, chewy and unctuous. Dark nougat is lightly caramelized, and crunchy. Purists argue that the best nougat is dark nougat. Whether hard or soft, nougat is made from honey and unroasted almonds, and the flavor of its ingredients shines through.

The “Maison Boyer” in Sault figures in the Guinness Book des records for having made the longest bar of nougat (180 kg and 12.45 meters long) and the biggest bag of nougat pieces, which held no less than 40,000 domino shaped pieces of nougat! Pierre et Philippe Silvain Paysans nougatiers 288 Route de Venasque 84210 SAINT DIDIER T. 04 90 66 09 57 www.nougat-silvain-freres.fr

These nougat makers make their nougat from ingredients which they grow and produce themselves. The almonds are grown on their farm, and their 100 beehives between Mont Ventoux and Luberon are the source of their honey. They also make a delicious product called “Nougalettes”.

Papaline The Papaline was created in 1960, and named after the Avignon Popes. It forms a small thistle, made of 2 thin layers of chocolate which are filled with the Comtat liqueur made of oregano. The recipe for this herbal liqueur remains a secret. The liqueur was created in 1870, and is made from plants which have been macerated in a selection of fine spirits. They are then distilled, and excellent quality honey is added.

where to find Papalines A sticker on the door of the pastry shop or candy shop informs you that the Papaline can be found in that shop. You can also buy them directly from the only local maker:

Distillerys The countryside in Vaucluse county is planted with fruit trees and vineyards – sources of powerful inspiration to the people who make liqueurs, spirits and syrups. There are several artisanal distilleries which jealously guard the secrets of their ancestral recipes. They all prefer quality to quantity, and love to innovate too! Another good example of Provencal ingenuity is internationally popular Pastis!

Distillerie A. Blachère

Distillerie Girard

The oldest distillery in Provence, founded in 1835. The Blachère Distillery is specialised in the preparation of brandies aged in oak barrels. It also makes Provencal liqueurs including the famous Origan du Comtat and the Elixir du Mont Ventoux, which have been around for more than a hundred years. The Blachère Distillery created Pastis Marra and Camarguais, fruit brandies and the highly popular syrups such as Pac citron, Fun Blue and Couleur Provence which come in many different flavours (melon, kiwi, violet, and others). Museum - Tasting Cellar - sales. Free tasting. Open Monday to Friday 10 to 12 and 2 to 7. In June, July and August, open Saturdays too from 2 to 7.

Since 1924 Jules Girard has been perpetuating the family tradition of making pastis, which means “mixture” in Provençal. The Girard Distillery also makes traditional Provencal aperitifs based on ancestral recipes which feature a talented combination of herbs and precious spices.

Recipes foccacia with Beaumes de venise olive oil Recipe by Nathalie Gresse Restaurant Le Mesclun à Séguret - 250 grams white flour - 5 grams fine salt - 10 grams baker’s yeast - 150 grams lukewarm water - 125 grams good butter - Black olives, country bacon or trimmings from Provencal lamb Preparation Soften the yeast in the warm water. In a mixing bowl, put half the flour with the softened yeast and warm water and mix to obtain sticky dough. Add the salt then the rest of the flour. Knead by hand or by machine for 3 minutes to aerate the dough and make it smooth. Form a ball and treat it like puff pastry dough by giving it two simple “turns”. Once it has been turned, put the black olives and the country bacon (or leftover roasted lamb …)

Roll out this foccacia until it is 2.5 cm thick. Place it on a non-stick oven tray and let rise approximately 30 minutes. Bake 20 minutes at 200°C.

The very first asparagus (“Demoiselles”) from Robert Blanc, the last black truffles from vaucluse, farm-fresh egg just soft-boiled, in a truffle crust Recipe by Laurent Azoulay, Restaurant Le Saule Pleureur à Monteux For 4 persons Preparation time: 1 ½ hours Cooking time: 15 minutes Ingredients 20 green asparagus n° 22/24 40 grams black truffle 6 eggs 200 grams brioche crumbs 200 grams flour 15 cl milk 10 cl Aglandau olive oil 100 grams Reggiano parmesan Salt, pepper

Truffle napoleon Recipe by Guy Julien La Beaugravière à Mondragon 40 grams sliced truffles, 5cm minimum 50 grams of broken truffle pieces

65

Preparation Peel the asparagus stems from the middle to the bottom of the asparagus. Bring a pot of salted water to boil. Tie the asparagus together in 2 groups of 10 asparagus, place them in the boiling water and cook between 6 and 8 minutes. Remove and plunge them into a bowl of ice water. Place 4 eggs in a pot of boiling water with a splash of vinegar, for 5 minutes. The eggs must be softboiled. Cool them immediately on ice. Peel the black truffles and chop the peels. Thinly slice the truffles. Mix the brioche crumbs with the chopped truffle peel and make fine crumbs. Break 2 eggs in a bowl, beat with the milk. Put the flour in another bowl, and put the truffle crumbs in a 3rd bowl. Remove the shell from the softboiled eggs, roll them in flour, then in the beaten egg-milk mixture, and then in the truffle crumbs. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and brown the eggs delicately on all sides. Finishing touches In the plate, place 5 asparagus like pick-up sticks, place the breaded egg on top. At the very last minute, pierce the egg so that the yolk runs out. Add a few slices of truffle, and parmesan. Chef’s recommendation: Cook the asparagus upright to keep the tips intact. Serve the truffles barely warmed to retain all their flavour. 66

Thick slice of leg of lamb from Provence, spelt from sault, spring vegetables with Royal saffron from saint-christol d’albion Recipe by Eric Aubert L’Auberge de Loubion à St Christol For 4 persons 1gram of royal Saffron from St Christol salt olive oil 4 thick slices of leg of lamb from Provence (request from your butcher or do yourself) Bone from the leg of lamb (request from your butcher if you cannot not do it yourself) 500 grams of lamb flank meat, sliced 2 glasses of white wine and 4 glasses of water 1 handful of snow peas

1 bunch of green asparagus 200grams peas 200grams green beans 250 grams spelt from Sault Preparation Lamb jus: The night before, brown the bones and lamb flank meat in a hot oven (200°C). Deglaze with the white wine and water to recover all the juices. Pour into a pan and reduce over a low flame for about 2 hours. Filter the jus and put it to chill. Spelt: In a large pot, cook the spelt in 1.5 litres of water with a pinch of bicarbonate of soda to reduce cooking time. Bring to a boil for approximately 30 minutes. Rinse in cold water. Reheat in the lamb juice to which saffron has been added before serving.

Spring vegetables: Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Plunge in the water, one by one, the varieties of vegetables until each has returned to a boil. Chill immediately in iced water to set the colour and retain firmness. Put to the side. Reheat in the lamb juice to which saffron has been added before serving. Remove the lamb jus prepared the evening before and remove any fat. Heat the jus to boiling then turn off the heat. Add the saffron and let it infuse while you cook the meat. Lamb steaks: Remove from the refrigerator 1 hour before cooking. Season with salt and pepper. Brown the meat on all sides in the olive oil, in a hot pan. Place the pan in the oven heated to 150° for 12 minutes. Remove the meat from the frying pan and let it rest 10 minutes before serving. During these 10 minutes, pour the saffron lamb jus into the pan used to cook the lamb steaks to recover all the juices. Let it reduce 2 minutes over high heat. Use this juice to reheat the spelt, the spring vegetables, then pour over the meat just before serving.

small tomatoes stuffed with tarrag Recipe by Christian Étienne Restaurant Christian Étienne in Avignon For 6 persons 18 round small tomatoes, 2 kg of Marmande tomatoes, 10 tarragon leaves, 25 cl beef stock, 2 cloves of garlic, 1 onion. Preparation Skin the small tomatoes, cut off the top one-third down the tomato, remove the seeds. Place the tomatoes upside down to drain. Chop the 2 kg of Marmande tomatoes (skin, seed, chop). Sauté the onion and garlic with the olive oil and chopped tomatoes. Reduce, add the chopped tarragon leaves, and stuff the tomatoes. Bake 5 min in hot oven with the beef stock and serve as is. The real advantage to this recipe is that it brings out the true taste of the tomato. The tomatoes you stuff must be less ripe and firmer than the Marmande tomatoes going into the crush – this brings out the greatest flavour.
