Victorine lives in Trouville-sur-mer. After scientific studies in biotechnology (specialized in food processing), she now lives her passion! This young woman who, during her childhood, kept repeating "I want to be a cook" is now realizing her dream. She has been delighting us for 3 years as the chef of the Coffe Shop Villa Gypsy in Trouville-sur-mer. Victorine's cooking is inspired by her travels! She also proposes her sweet recipes on her blog Vicky The Cook.
Your bedside book of confinement
The kitchen, always the kitchen... these are recipe books brought back from the 4 corners of the world
A film during those long days of confinement
Not really a movie but rather all the Netflix series that occupy my confinement between 2,3 revenue ideas.
The music that accompanies you at the moment
"Dance Monkey" by Tones and I. As soon as I listen to it I feel like singing and dancing even at home during the lockdown!
Your anti-depression aperitif
My love for aperitifs with friends, lovers, in a nice bar, on the beach and well at the moment it is rather glass of wine while cooking a delicious meal
Your signature recipe at Coffee Shop Villa Gypsy
My bowls ! They change every day: cereals, raw or oven-roasted vegetables, from seedsand herbs and always a lot of spices (traveling, always traveling)!
Your 5 favorite ingredients in the kitchen
Chocolate, seeds, fresh herbs, ginger and all spices
Your worst memory in the kitchen
The Saturday before the lockdown? all our set up was done for Sunday brunch. And in the evening we learned that the next day, we would not open. We went to the store to empty the fridges.
An unsurpassed express recipe for everyday use.
Roasted vegetables !
With any vegetable it works. Cut them in 2 lengthwise. Put them on a plate. A little olive oil, spices, salt, pepper, even sometimes a little honey. In the oven for 40mn and hop! Hot or even cold, in salad it is just a marvel!
Your upcoming projects (culinary)
The events that await me where I will be a provider, to cook gourmet dishes! (I cross my fingers that the confinement will not be too hard)
Your good addresses in Trouville-sur-mer
I love to go for a drink at the bar Les 4 chats then cross the street to finish the evening in their restaurant which is an institution in Trouville-sur-mer! Otherwise there is a place? it's the beach? my great happiness to finish my day in summer and go for a healthy picnic? or even a pizza it works!
Charlotte Corday's pastries, especially the Karl Zéro (coffee, nuts, caramel: a delight). Yes, because here the cakes have celebrity names!
And for a good ice cream, I recommend Martine Lambert. The flavors, the texture? and even their chocolate covered "le succulent" ice cream cake. I'm going straight there after the lockdown.
