Stéphane arrived at what he calls three “Grand Cru”, by selectively foraging only the best wild specimens from France’s magnificent mountain ranges. Each “Grand Cru” is derived from an assembly of select wild plants and exudes exceptional aroma and flavour. There is “one recipe per mountain” – Séquanes (Massif du Jura), Ucenni (Massif des Écrins), and Ceutrons (Massif de la Vanoise).
