What’s new at Nest?
An incredible cooking adventure!
The season continues with Nest in Normandy…
Colin is in the kitchen sharing his expertise in preparing dinner menus. The fish menus feature velouté of Barfleur mussels with paprika and vanilla, wild sea bass with Paimpol beans, and pan-fried turbot in Normand butter. On the meat side, you’ll learn to roast low temperature pork tenderloin with caramelized apples and pears.
Nest in Normandy isn’t just about discovering local tastes and flavors. You’ll share moments of friendship and discovery. August is the ideal time to relax on the beach, slow down and appreciate the simplicity of these intense moments.
So why wait? We look forward to seeing you soon.
What’s going on in the kitchen?
This month, on the menu of our cookbook:
Life in Normandy !
Current events in and around Dieppe…
From August 16-20, discover life in an allied forces’ camp during WW2 on the grass strip at the beach! 8000 m² will be devoted to this re-enactment. A hundred collectors bearing equipment and in period dress, 50 tents and some 40 vehicles will be present. Don’t miss this opportunity to discover the details of Operation Jubilee.
The vast gathering for the 60 years of Alpine organized from September 11-13 is a must-see. It was on June 22, 1955 that Jean Rédélé filed the act establishing the Alpine automobile company with the Commercial Court of the Seine region. Alpine’s former employees invite fans to mark the 60th anniversary of their favorite make of car in Dieppe. The entire Alpine family will be there – yesterday’s historic stakeholders, those who have taken up the torch today, along with the stable’s young drivers who are once again taking the Alpine colors to the summit on the racing circuits. This could be the ideal context to lift the veil of secrecy surrounding the future Berlinette, which will have the daunting responsibility of ensuring the succession to the mythical A110 in the modern world at the start of the 21st century.
- The Château de Miromesnil is organizing its traditional sale of kitchen garden produce on Saturday August 29. This eagerly awaited event is the opportunity for visitors to purchase the vegetables from the kitchen garden and to meet the castle’s “green fingers”, who are always keen to provide valuable advice.
- Summer is winding down and we can harvest the last sun-drenched tomatoes and wonderfully sweet grapes. Plums, blackberries or figs hold the promise of delicious jams. September is also the moment to think about the off-season! As the garden gradually empties, it’s time to collect the seeds from the wilting flowers. These are dried and stored preciously to be sown when the warm weather comes round again.
