Why the "French Corner" ?
After several years in Denmark, firstly in Aarhus, then in Copenhagen, I realized that if pancakes and French galettes were presents, they were very poorly represented. And this simply because the people in charge of manufacture had very little training, and mainly because products used were not of the best quality.
Without good product, it can't be neither good food nor good cooking !
France is famous for its cuisine all over the world. But none of his specialties have any interest if the products used are not the best ones. That's why, when, in 2015, I’ve created the "French Corner", I’ve decided to use only the best products from the best producers, and mostly manufactured in France.
This is the case for the "Billig" (pan on where the crepe is made) which is made in France, the flour used is of the best mills in France & the jam caramel salted butter is made by a little artisan in Brittany, in the West of France.
From these considerations the name of my business was clear: the aim of representing a corner of France, "French Corner" was evident. My goal is fully summarized in this name: to discover the specialties of a corner of West of France, Brittany where "Crêpes" and "galettes" are considered are institutions. Italy has pizza, Spain has paella, Denmark has smørrebrød : Brittany have the "Crêpes" and "galettes"!
In Brittany we distinguish very clearly the "galette" (made from buckwheat flour) that is eaten as a main course accompanied typically by salted ingredients such asham, cheese, eggs, mushrooms, tomatoes etc. "Crêpes" (made from wheat flour) are rather considered as a dessert accompanied by sweet ingredients such as chocolate, strawberry, banana or jam of all kinds.
French Corner in Aarhus.
And Aarhus Street Food has arrived! I contacted Thomas, Kasper and Britt who had a project to launch a Street Food in Aarhus, similar to those we know in Copenhagen. The project was very exciting for two reasons: I was searching a way to grow my business on one hand and I used to live in Aarhus for 5 years before living in Copenhagen on the other hand. Join the business to pleasure could only please me and that's the reason I agreed this project immediately and with a great enthusiasm.
Tests have been successful, it only remained to install my food truck in Aarhus: the concept is based on the use of containers, but having my truck, it brings an original touch.
This is why, since August 2016, I am pleased, with my team, to allow all visitors to taste healthy food, made with good products, inexpensive, in a great atmosphere.
The impression of having met all the kitchens of the world in a unique and friendly place!
