For a month and a half, Mikaël Jaulin took over the reins of the historic Négociants café-brasserie, built in 1898. This Thursday, the chef prepared the traditional croustade, the region’s famous stew. “At the time, it was the dish for the bottom of the fridge, the vegetables and the meat to finish … and we cooked it over a wood fire”, explains the restaurateur. The villagers went to the baker to bake it, rolled up in its puff pastry. “ A balanced and simple meal to share “, smiles the chef. But beware, it is a dish that does not heat up, at the risk of losing the flavors.
