Recipe of dish. David Gallienne in Fecamp for a gourmet breakfast

This week’s Taste of Normandy Meetings takes pride of place in pastries and pastries! Chef David Gallienne

This week, celebrity chef David Gallien left his kitchen and traveled to Fecamp in the Seine-Maritime to meet Elodie, a Burgundian who has chosen Normandy, its rocks and sea air, to make a living from her passion: baking.

Before getting down to business, Elodie invites David to go to Cape Fagnet. It is the highest point on the Alabaster Coast and is where Elodie regularly travels to pursue photography, her second passion.

Here is a magnificent view, we rise above the city of Fécamp.

After that breath of fresh air, head to Elodie’s Bakery. We quickly realize that his establishment, located in downtown Fécamp, has little in common with a traditional bakery. His creed? Homemade, recipes from other places, raw materials from short circuits.

Everything here is homemade and from local products. All raw materials come from Normandy within a radius of 30 km from Fecamp. Also, she asks David to get organic eggs from Guillaume, one of his growers.

Another thing that stands out about this atypical bakery is the lack of a counter and window. Here, all Elodie’s creations (bread, cakes, buns, etc.) are simply placed on a friendly table, where everyone can eat them with their eyes.

Sweets calling for travel and discovery. Among his many specialties are recipes small brioche Saint Lucia and gingerbread, which Elodie decided to share with our Michelin-starred chef from Normandy.

But in the bakery, we meet customers during the day and cook at night. So the next day at 4:00 a.m., an appointment is made for David in front of the bakery to prepare this gourmet breakfast.

Knead everything in a food processor for 20 minutes, then cut the butter into pieces and add it to the dough. Knead again for 10 minutes.
Leave for 1 hour and then refrigerate overnight.
The next day, detail the dough and shape each piece into an S.
