The Conserverie Lachaud is a family run business established in 1965 by André Lachaud. It is now into its third generation, overseen by André’s granddaughter Audrey. The first preserves made by the family were cornichons grown on André’s family plot & with their success, the business & expanding range of produce was born.
A classic, crunchy cornichon with a clean, sharp vinegar flavour that makes way for the pleasing vegetal minerality of the gherkins themselves. The classic use of cornichons is with Raclette where their acidity cuts the richness of so much melted cheese. We recommend eating these with Raclette Alpage, a buttery cheddar like Hafod or Kirkham’s Lancashire. They also pair excellently with Fondue.
These roundly flavoured silverskin onions are made with a crisp & sweetly tangy vinegar that bring out their equal balance of freshness & piquancy. They provide a lovely contrast to a sweeter cheese like Comte or Gruyere, work excellently with Raclettes & Fondue but are sufficiently versatile to sit easily alongside most of our hard cheeses & our British blues.
A rich, perfumed sour cherry cured in a warmly-spiced vinegar. The combination of cloves and spices alongside the complex flavour of this florally aromatic cherry is a perfect pairing for Raclette Alpage or the rich, caramel butteriness of Ossau Iraty. They would also ably replace or compliment pickled walnuts with cured or cooked meats.
