When we think about local Charlevoix producers, we sometimes forget the ones offering the little things that can change everything in our recipes – those that instantly charm us with a single pinch. Here are 4 must-haves to add to your local grocery list.
Jardin des Chefs – Les Éboulements
At the Jardin des Chefs, Valérie welcomes you to her spicy world. She will be delighted to tell you the story of her family, show you around, tell you all about her love for peppers, and give you some delicious recipe ideas!
Psst… Gorria peppers can be easily added to all your favourite recipes.
Jardins du Centre – Les Éboulements
The Jardins du Centre is a vast and hidden corner of Les Éboulements that is really worth a visit. As a family, it’s the perfect place to play, see some animals and especially to pick blackberries, raspberries, blueberries and more. Come in the fall and pick pumpkins and squash with your kids.
Safran Nordique – Clermont
Geneviève and Renald’s dream has come true and now you can discover Safran de Charlevoix. They will be happy to introduce you to their playground in the mountains and they will welcome you to the top – with the most beautiful view of Clermont – so you can taste their many saffron-based products. Stay tuned, there are several new projects coming on this extraordinary saffron field.
Les Belles Récoltes – La Malbaie
A beautiful pastoral setting with magnificent views of the mountains is the perfect place to discover the amazing universe of Brigitte and Stéphane: Les Belles Récoltes. They grow organic grains to make delicious grain products. Before or after a hike, stop for a tasting or a small snack and enjoy the landscape that surrounds you.
