Wine has not been forgotten. Burgundy wines and crémants: You have a wide choice of quality wines.
A Joigny specialty, the Dagmar was created at the beginning of the 20th century. Its name evokes the Danish princess who married Emperor Alexander III to become Empress of Russia. The Dagmar rose to fame in the 1960s, when its reputation extended beyond the borders of the Yonne region, but it then fell into oblivion. Michel Lorain decided to revive this specialty for modern tastes, to the delight of all those who were nostalgic for this delicious treat.
The Dagmar is a small soft chocolate caramel, coated with a thin layer of crispy caramel.
The search for the original recipe took a lot of time, since it could only be resurrected with the help of the gustative memory of the inhabitants of Joigny!
Jean-Michel Lorain has taken the perpetuation of this rediscovered tradition to heart for the pleasure of gourmets.
The Côte Saint-Jacques has therefore developed a kitchen where they are prepared by the pastry chef of the House, according to the same artisanal processes as in the past.
Their preparation is long and delicate, since each bonbon is cut and then dipped by hand into the caramel.
HELP US TO PROTECT BIODIVERSITY AND OUR PLANET
We do not inherit the Earth from our Parents, we borrow it from our Children
For several years, with my wife Karine, we have had the opportunity to travel around the different continents and in particular the African lands to admire the treasures that nature offers us.
During our travels, we have been able to forge links with men and women on the terrain, who are now witnessing the threat of extinction of many species getting closer every day.
We decided to found the association "Dessine nous un Avenir" in order not to remain spectators of the tragedy that is taking place all over the world, including on our doorstep.
The aim of the association "Dessine nous un Avenir" is to sensitize young people to the urgency of protecting biodiversity and our planet as a whole.
