the essential The teams from Echappées Belles, the France 3 program, are currently filming in the department.
After starting filming in Toulouse on Thursday, the team then moved to the Pic du Midi de Bigorre (Hautes-Pyrénées). At the end of a weekend spent in the bowels of the astronomical observatory, the small group took over the management of Mélanie Zervos’ department and restaurant, Le Clos Saint-Martin – La Métairie, for a culinary experience. At the piano at her establishment, the young chef from Ariège only had a few hours to reinvent a dish. On Sunday, with Laurence Talleux, a specialist in edible wild plants, Mélanie Zervos notably discovered that you could cook lichens or even the great Berthe whose taste laughs on fennel with a hint of anise. Faced with this culinary challenge, the little Clos Saint-Martin brigade has concocted a potato risotto à la grande Berthe to accompany a pigeon.
Today, filming continues in Ariège with other surprises in store. It will then only be necessary to edit the program of 90 minutes.
