Picture post from l’Ile d’Yeu, France

by Peeter Pihel

Life is full of wonderful surprises – some time ago I got invited to a foodfestival Les Gouts Uniques to prepare  ‘Dejeuner au Vert’ on l’Ile d’Yeu together with Alexandre Couillon from Noirmoutier. So at the moment this is exactly where I’m at. I will give you more detailed overview once I’m back, so until then you can enjoy some pictures.

Les Gouts Uniques is the festival I’m participating

 

White tuna is very common here

Grave white tunafish with wild fennel and local salt

 

The island is also known for its potatos, that’s why we decided to prepare a Muhu classic – hapurokk

 

We will use those tomatos with white tunafish
