Getting back to basics
A Sépaq and Bravejack collaboration
Through a privileged contact with nature, the Bravejack team finds all the inspiration it needs to produce new culinary creations. Because when we get back to basics, the best ideas emerge.
To our delight and that of our taste buds, Stéphane Modat and his team have agreed to share the fruit of their experience in Sépaq territories. (Videos in French only)
