After crisscrossing the French countryside to capture portraits of activist farmers and inspired chefs, photojournalist Anne-Claire Héraud is taking a break at this adorable, picture-postcard village inn (an old fireplace, wicker chairs, bouquets of fresh flowers, a sunny terrace). She serves bucolic, plant-forward, ethical cuisine, sourced from her partner Simon at the Les Trois Parcelles farm, just a few miles from the village. The other day at lunch: a delightful smoked eggplant dip; freshly harvested tomatoes simply dressed in fig leaf oil; a crispy Ottolenghi-style pizzetta topped with farm-fresh cream, yellow zucchini ribbons, crumbled bleu d’Auvergne cheese and toasted buckwheat; before an excellent almond fondant cake drizzled in raspberry and verbena coulis. And don’t forget about Sunday brunch: labneh, marinated peppers, fingerling potato and haricots verts salad, fried eggs, rhubarb cake… // Thomas Jossin
