TASTE OF COUNTRYSIDE
DID YOU KNOW ?
Brach’s rooftop is home to a kitchen garden that is full of surprises: berries, vegetables and herbs, a Norwegian bath and panoramic views over Paris as well as… a chicken coop with 3 laying hens: Églantine, a dark grey Coucou de Rennes, Suzie, a Harco with black plumage and Bérénice, a magnificent ash grey.
Seasonal fruits and vegetables
A cruciferous vegetable, the cauliflower is high in antioxidants and vitamins that help fight cardiovascular disease and certain types of cancer. Whether raw, cooked, or even roasted in the oven as at our restaurant, this low-calorie vegetable is easy to enjoy as an appetizer or with the main course.
Full of energy and high in carbohydrates, minerals, B vitamins, and antioxidants, bananas are the perfect digestive helper with their antacid and anti-ulcer effects. They also contain high levels of potassium and magnesium, promoting concentration and minimizing the effects of stress. Their plentiful benefits can help reduce the back-to-school blues.
With vitamin C, broccoli helps strengthen the immune system and fight winter illnesses. It’s excellent for the memory and is said to help prevent cognitive decline. Boiled, chopped, raw, or steamed, this vegetable is high in antioxidants and bioactive compounds and also has anticancer properties.
Grapefruit belongs to the citrus family. This fruit with a sour taste and colorful pulp (pink, yellow, or red) is high in vitamins and also contains powerful antioxidants. Grapefruit is an “anticancer” food. Its powerful properties have a special ability to help prevent cancer by improving the anticancer capabilities of other foods.
You can still fill up on citrus fruits in winter! Eaten on their own or added to salads for a sweet touch, oranges are high in vitamin C and fiber and low in calories. They’re one of the most effective fruit sources of calcium and they stimulate the immune system.
