Semaine du Goût III : éducation


Last weekend's farmers market event was also an educational one, with exhibits about farming in the Yvelines (département of which Versailles is county town) and bread making, from wheat to the bakery.
--------------
Le marché des producteurs samedi dernier, c'était aussi l'occasion de s'informer sur l'agriculture dans les Yvelines dont Versailles est le chef-lieu, ainsi que sur la fabrication du pain, du blé jusqu'au boulanger.

My mother used to make Swedish rye bread. God, that was good!

I think those exhibits would be very interesting and even at my advanced age, I might learn something. Maybe.

Hope all goes well...

I like your second shot. The 'ingredients'.

Magnificent caricature in the background. Any day you learn something new, is a good day indeed.

Randy said...

BREAD! Sounds good to me.

It's good for people to have a connection to the source of their food. Lots of what we eat, even if produced in the US, comes from one or two thousand kilometers away (not to mention all those apples we get from Chile and New Zealand). Americans assume it will always be there, and cheap.

It is always nice to learn the wheres and the whyfors. MB

Maybe some children will learn that food does not come from supermarkets.

You are so right about Thorpe and if you take the road all the way into Thorpe you will get to Highway 10 and that will take you on the backroad to Cle Elum. Ah you are so smart. MB

I would love to learn about their products,even if I grow up on a farm in Brazil I think the products here are different.

@ Malyss : si elle n'avait pas été là, je n'aurais pas pris la photo !

It is a great opportunity to teach the visitors about farming in their region.

VP said...

Your markets are much more interesting than ours. We don't see things like these here!

Francisca said...

Ciel, I can't be sure, but I think my friend made that bag the woman in your first photo is carrying... :-D Like Jacob, I would definitely enjoy this kind of exhibition. And it's time to go have a rye sandwich for lunch! :-D

[I was pretty clear that it's work keeping you busy... but I was hoping it would be joyful work. My plate is overflowing too, but I love the work... and I'd better get back to it now! :-D]

Diane said...

That sounds great! I would have loved that.

Olivier said...

j'aime beaucoup l'enseigne de la boulangerie Golotte, on dirait un dessin de Dubout

Kaori said...

Sounds like a great event, Ciel! Bread making is really popular here...but all we have to do is put the ingredients in a machine and press a button. Personally, I prefer the handmade bread my mom always makes ;-D

La 2eme photo avec le ble la paille et le sac de farine donne un air tres artisanal et on a bien envie d'acheter du pain sur ce marche.
Les Yvelines est un tres joli departement.

Jacob said...

Thanks, Ciel. Glad that things are OK...

Halcyon said...

A lovely display. Sounds like it was an interesting day at the market!

Two beautiful photographs, Ciel. I admire your use of color and light in these.

I would have enjoyed seeing the exhibits in person. I love these photos!

T. Becque said...

Love that pink! And bread making, mmmm!

«Louis», who would love to own a boulangerie-pâtisserie would have enjoyed this!
