Petrossian

Coupe du Tsar glazed with Miso and Honey – Especially for Galeries Lafayette, Petrossian dresses its famous Coupe du Tsar in an inimitable coating. As part of this recipe with Asian influences, the heart consisting of smoked salmon is marinated for a long time in a white miso and honey sauce before being glazed with a torch. The result is a fish with a deep but delicate aroma, a surprising combination of umami flavour, smokiness and a slightly sweet note.

Truffle market 

Peybere

Peybere is the oldest family-run truffle trading company. It was founded by Pierre Peybere in 1897 in a small village in southwestern France, north of the Lot department: La Chapelle Mareuil. This small business initially sold all of the region’s specialities, including truffles, foie gras and crepes, all over France. In 1920, the founder’s son Alain decided to specialise exclusively in truffles.
