I submit to you today that I've seen on this car trip the most beautiful sunset of my life. With 15, full of excitement and anticipation to the city of fashion, love and good food. "La vie en rose", I say only.

On the first evening we were in his friends, in the midst of Paris, and You can imagine, we ate several courses felt until late in the night. The Motto is saved somewhere else, never on the food. What I do know since then, and again later have experienced is that eating is for the majority of our French neighbours is an important part of daily life. The love of good ingredients and respect for animals is deeply rooted. They also like to talk about the food, about the composition, the different types of preparation and of course the matching wines. You can also place a very high value on agricultural traditions, and regionality, so also where the ingredients come from.

Charolais Rindfleisch - Das besondere Rindfleisch -


For me, it has to know, for example, is of special significance where the meat comes from, the food my family and I. Because I firmly believe that only happy and healthy animals can develop the best meat. For me, it is a matter of honor that I buy meat from sustainable farming to the animals in some way give something back.

Cattle breeding in France is not only sustainable, but even a centuries-old Tradition. The animals are still kept for the most part, in very original farms, which have just 56 cattle in average. Allowed to move freely on the Lawn or in the barn. They eat fresh grass and herbs, as well as hay and Gärfutter, which in turn comes from their own controlled cultivation. The breeders take care of every single one of their animals, as required by the Tradition, we must imagine time. For this purpose, each animal has an individual cattle passport which is his life from birth to the meat counter completely traceable.

What impressed me is that there are a whopping 22 breeds of cattle in France, because I have brought to France, never with cattle breeding in connection. Including special breeds, and hot as: Limousin, Blonde d'aquitaine or the Charolais beef. The meat of these breeds of cattle is of a very special quality, very aromatic, tender and juicy, and a uniform fine-marbled meat.

I came in the enjoyment of Charolais cattle for the development of this recipe. The French meat Association, Interbev, and the magazine EatSmarter! asked me if I would like to create a recipe under the Motto "soul food for the fall". Since my men and I very much liked to eat high-quality meat, I was winning of course and fortunately I got the part piece of beef tenderloin.
