Some history

The world’s first fruit to be granted the AOC title in 1938, the Noix de Grenoble walnut is a natural source of energy, and of zinc, copper and potassium. It is also rich in Omega 3 and arginine and is an effective anti-aging ingredient thanks to its high Vitamin E content. It’s also a real memory booster: don’t forget to eat walnuts for their phosphorus content.


The tart:

  • 1 roll of short crust pastry
  • 800g Beaufort cheese
  • 500ml milk
  • 500ml cream
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 egg yolks
  • Salt, pepper, nutmeg


The salad:

  • Rocket
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Olive oil
  • 80g of walnut kernels


The tart: Line your pie dish. Mix the milk, cream, eggs, egg yolks, salt, pepper and nutmeg, and beat with a whisk for one minute. Grate the Beaufort, spread it over the bottom of the dish and pour in the mixture. Cook for around 40 to 45 minutes at 170°C.


The salad: Assemble the rocket salad with the Noix de Grenoble walnuts and serve.
