Cook & gourmandise

Of the growth, cooked, salted, sweet, kitchen, food tells the story of men.
—Martine Laffon.

armoire-moules-chocolatLocated in Burgundy, the unique collections of the Museum of Folk Arts Laduz near Auxerre could not ignore the kitchen and usual and decorative objects … cabinet-chocolate molds

The diversity of climates, cultures, knowledge spawned a wide variety in the composition and preparation of meals. Specific utensils were born as needed: earthenware, stoneware, glass, carved butter molds. They were the source of decorative creations.

The food in the countryside was not always plentiful, but the Sunday lunch religious feast days or the coming of the friends were so many opportunities to get the best pieces of china.
