Know-how inspired by artisanal methods
Behind the scenes, La Fermière takes the time to do well:
A process worthy of an artisanal method
Our whole vanilla pods are hand cut every day in our workshops and infused directly into whole milk and whole cream. This long and delicate infusion method releases all the aromas and reveals the subtle, natural and unadorned taste of vanilla. Don't be surprised if you see vanilla beans at the bottom of the jar and marbling on the surface: they are the signs of an artisanal process.
As with vanilla, our infusion method is also used for coffee and lavender. Ground coffee and lavender are infused into whole milk respectively.
An artisanal infusion process
We infuse long lemon zest in whole milk to extract all the aroma then we add the lemon juice. Our lemons are hand pressed as soon as they arrive at the workshop in order to preserve all their flavor.
We choose mature lemons sun-kissed, with a generous and particularly juicy pulp for a yogurt with intense and natural fragrance.
The infusion of lavender and coffee
Officinale lavender from Haute-Provence is infused delicately and for a long time in whole milk. The coffee benefits from slow, low-temperature cooking which ensures thorough roasting and optimal enhancement of aromas.
The secret of our rice pudding, slowly cooked in good milk from the Alps, is the know-how of our employees because it is their seasoned eye and their expert spoon strokes that guide the cooking of each vat.
Indeed, depending on the harvest, the rice changes, more or less loaded with starch, more or less humid… As we do not use stabilizers and other texturizers, it is not the rice that adapts to us but we who adapt to the rice!
A pastry mousse
The recipe is simple: whole cream, single-origin chocolate, sugar, free-range eggs and … ourand sleight of hand. This gives our mousses their rich airy and very cocoa texture.
All our chocolate desserts are made with original chocolate. Whether it is 100 % Peru, Vietnam or Papua, our foams stand out for their unique and recognizable taste.
We infuse real vanilla pods into the cream for a long time to release all its aromas, for an airy and gourmet whipped cream.
The extra key: our cream is without animal gelatin.
Our bush is ladled
Milk does not always curdle at the same speed: molding ladle manual allows it to be separated from the water to obtain a neat texture and taste.
