How will your project help promote the gastronomy of the Hauts-de-France region?

This exhibition highlights organic farmers working in Hauts de France and promotes the development of responsible and sustainable agricultural practices and gastronomic cultural heritage. The photographer Danièle Taulin-Hommell went to meet farmers and producers who work in many fields, and through the portraits she made of them in the context of their activity, it is all the regional quality products that are honored: honey, cider, champagne, goat cheese, sheep … These foods with their culinary identity, are rich in flavor, unprocessed, and good for your health. Varieties of old fruits and vegetables, as well as local breeds are valued.

The captions accompanying the photos present the know-how of these farmers and indicate the places where they sell their products (at the farm, Amap, stores, markets,…). The visits of these numerous farms are as many opportunities of discovery of the specialities of the soils, for the inhabitants of Hauts de France as for the people visiting the region.
