By combining bread liqueur and Roquefort liqueur, the Alsatian distillery Massenez invented the first liquid toast. We do not recommend it for breakfast.
Would you like a little toast, no, not very hungry? Never mind, you can now drink it (yes, yes, you read that right). There Alsatian distillery Massenez, with recognized know-how for more than 150 years, has decided to decline two icons of our French culinary heritage in liqueur: the baguette and roquefort . These two liqueurs which, once combined in the glass, form a real 'liquid toast'. A high rank toast therefore, which was presented to a number of star chefs on March 5 at a dinner given by the Massenez distillery. A meaningful event on the eve of the Star Ceremony Michelin in Strasbourg .
Bernard Baud, the president of the distillery, had this crazy idea during a trip to Australia while tasting a cocktail … Pizza Martini . The idea of applying this concept to our baguette, listed as intangible heritage of the Unesco last November, then germinated in his mind. This results in a bread liquor ' with a surprising and familiar taste, that of a fresh baguette with the softness of an airy crumb and the warm personality of a crispy crust “, he describes. Then, the liqueur roquefort is created, the latter was born from an encounter with the famous Maison Lorho , Master cheese makers . The association of the two liqueurs imposed itself as an evidence, and, as on a real toast , Bernard Baud recommends respecting proportions :' If we want to have fun, we take the bread liqueur, 2/3 and 1/3 of Roquefort liqueur, we mix and we end up with a kind of liquid toast “, he advises.
Barely launched on the market, these liqueurs are already dubbed by many renowned chefs. The two-star chef Patrick Henriroux who officiates at the restaurant La Pyramide, in Isère, incorporates Roquefort liqueur in a gel to accompany his Solaize leek mille-feuille. On the pastry side, the executive pastry chef of the hotel Plaza Athenée Angelo Musa already offers two desserts around Roquefort.
