Topinambours, courges, choux, carottes, potirons...

Goûts d'Yvelines Versailles
VDP loved this autumn/winter veg display at Goûts d'Yvelines! Below, chef Thierry Conte of Le Camélia restaurant in nearby Bougival showing his skills to a captivated audience (that's a microphone on his cheek should you wonder!) Do you eat seasonal fruit and veg?

VDP a adoré l'étalage de légumes de saison à Goûts d'Yvelines ! Ci-dessous, Thierry Conte, le chef du restaurant étoilé le Camélia à Bougival à l'oeuvre devant un auditoire passionné (c'est un micro sur sa joue, au cas où vous vous demanderiez quelle est cette tache !) Vous mangez des fruits de saison ou vous achetez des fraises en novembre ?

I've actually been on the lookout for some varieties of squash and pumpkins good for cooking.

I recognize some of those vegetables and others I have not seen. We are eating greens and butternut squash though with temperatures well below freezing, I guess squash are stored and not seasonal now.

Our regular market ended this weekend, but we've got Christmas markets coming up.

Michelle said...

I spy some butternut squash. My favorite.

I certainly try to eat in season although it gets hard in the winter to eat local, Ciel!

Randy said...

Nice looking veggies. Looks like a fun event.

Jack said...

Do I eat seasonal fruits and veggies? Ciel, I eat just about everything. That is the problem.

Winter veg = rib sticking stews with herby dumplings....Ummm

Squash is a favorite and pumpkin pie of course. That looks like a fun event.

The display is great and I imagine that I would be fascinated by the chef's work...

Die französischen Köche sind ja weltbekannt, wie könnte man da "nein" sagen?

Sharon Anck said...

What a beautiful display. It's all fine with me except for the squash. I really do not care for squash.

EG CameraGirl said...

I agree that the display is very attractive!

I just saw another blog with a similar post consisting of lots of gourds. It's driving me out of my gourd! Sheesh!

Nah, just kidding. In Florida, we have most all fruits and veggies in every season. Which means that sometimes the apples aren't too good, etc.

On mange les fraises en novembre mais ils sont dans la confiture fait à main par ma femme en juin ! Those squashes look gooo-oood.

SRQ said...

Pretty display. Believe it or not, strawberries soon will be in season here in Florida.

Jolie composition de couleurs

Les cucurbitacees ne font partie que de la decoratin chez nous... mais pour le reste nous mangeons local ce qui fait que l'hiver est dur sans tomates et sans poivrons sauf pour ces derniers que nous congelons pour pouvoir faire du chili con carne en hiver pour garder l;estomac au chaud...
Coup de coeur pour la photo deux.

Absolutely Ciel, seasonal is best, and I try to always buy Australian, West Australian if possible.
