les délicieuses créations
This beautiful yellow spice once used in Indian textiles, comes from an herbaceous plant whose rootstock is dried and ground, although in India they also consume it fresh, cut into fine slices. It possesses a delicate peppery perfume, musky and slightly acrid. Related to black pepper, curcumin, the main active ingredient in turmeric, has amplified therapeutic and anti-inflammatory effects. Turmeric is thus good to eat and good for you…
I have been working with this spice for a long time since its gentle warm taste is marvellous companion to one of my favourite ingredients : eggs ! Indeed, its dense and refined flavour diffused in a creamed sauce then cooled in a siphon in the refrigerator delights a poached egg and few Parisian mushrooms sautéed in a touch of butter… Turmeric also complements chestnuts, shellfish or carrots. The pairing of citrus-turmeric is a truly remarkable juxtaposition. In terms of taste, Turmeric is reminiscent of Matcha, is very mild—although it possesses a slight bitterness—and is a perfect complement to a citrus based dessert.
This collection was born from a meeting between Anne-Sophie and Maki Maruyama of the Jugetsudo house of Tea. Fascinated by Japan and Japanese gastronomy, Anne-Sophie is a prolific drinker of tea. At 20 years old, she discovered Matcha tea on a trip to Japan, and since then, has utilized it often in her cooking. Beyond Matcha tea, she is interested in all Japanese green teas, such as the Genmaïcha, the Gyokuro and the Sencha, to list a few. What attracts Anne-Sophie to green tea is that contrary to black tea it does not go through a process of fermentation, which gives it its subtle, delicate, but also green, and extremely fresh side, which develops a slight bitterness and acidity, even… salty.
Through our exchanges grew the idea of a collection which would reflect my culinary imagination, composed of unique associations of flavours and aromatic complexity. I have matched green teas with some of my favourite ingredients such as bohojicha with coffee from the Amaro mountains, genmaicha with Tonka bean, or even sencha and smoked vanilla.
She loves associating fruit with spices, spirits, aromatic plants, to unleash the palette of flavours.
CREATES HER CHOCOLATE
Son chocolat possède une attaque acide marquée qui est ensuite sublimée par des notes boisées et végétales pour terminer sur une belle astringence. Anne-Sophie Pic asked Valrhona to create a chocolate made from the mixtures of several vintages.
Her chocolate possesses a marked acidic attack which then succumbs to wooded and earthy notes ending on a beautiful astringency.
