To stay in good shape, it is important to eat well, local and seasonal. Find some tips on how to select your products during this winter period.

First of all, do you know the different fruits and vegetables that we can find in winter?

  • Vegetables

You can find pumpkin, endives, red cabbage, leeks, and why not decorate your little dishes with Paris mushrooms? Winter is also the right season for Jerusalem artichoke. By the way, do you know his story?

Jerusalem artichoke, also known as Canada's truffle because of its shape, was cultivated by Native American tribes. It is native to North America, and was introduced to Europe in 1607 by the English explorer Walter Releigh. It quickly became successful thanks to its little requirement for soil quality. In addition, it develops rapidly and in large quantities.
