Made In France in the kitchen

Luminarc is a Made in France brand, and our products have been manufactured in the north of France for many years now. Made in France is a value that we feel very strongly about and that we promote because it’s very important. We also like to partner with brands that promote this value.

Today, we’re going to tell you about a partnership we’ve set up and a 100% Made in France recipe that you can reproduce at home and that will please everyone at any time of day!

The Marcel et Jean X Luminarc partnership

In May, we were lucky enough to partner with the Marcel et Jean brand.

What is this brand?

Marcel est Jean is a Made in France apron brand that was created in 2017. Their aim is to bring back to life the famous apron that our mothers all used to cook in or do the housework, and to produce it locally to give it a new meaning.

They are responding to a real problem: today, it is very difficult to find Made in France accessories for the general public and professionals. Aprons are in every kitchen, but 98% of the time they’re made on the other side of the world. So what could be better than to be able to cook with Made In France crockery and, to become an outstanding chef, put on a Made In France apron. That’s the aim of this partnership!

Made In France cooking

And if we wanted to go all the way, why not cook a 100% Made in France product using French ingredients. So here’s the recipe for the famous bread to make at home:

French bread

This recipe is an easy bread recipe to make at home that will rival any bakery.

You will need

  • 500 g flour
  • 300 ml water
  • 1 sachet baker’s yeast
  • 2 teaspoons salt

Preparation :

  1. Mix the flour, yeast and water in the bowl.
  2. Knead for 15 minutes (by hand or in a food processor). 
  3. After 15 minutes, the dough should stick to the kneading trough. If necessary, you can add more water or flour. 
  4. Pour in the salt while kneading for another 15 minutes. The dough should be smooth and elastic. 
  5. Set the dough aside in the bowl and cover with a clean tea towel. Leave the dough to air for 2 hours. The dough should double in volume.
  6. Once the dough has risen, knead it on a clean, floured work surface. Deaerate the dough by pressing down hard with your fist.
  7. Gather the dough into a large bread ball.
  8. Brush with flour.
  9. Place the bread ball on a baking tray covered with a baking sheet. Leave to rest for another hour. If you want a moulded loaf, you can put the dough in an ovenproof dish.
  10. Preheat the oven to 250°C and draw fine lines on the top of the bread with the blade of a knife.
  11. Sprinkle the flour over the bread and place in the oven. Leave to bake for 25 minutes. The bread should be golden and crisp.

Now all you have to do is enjoy it for breakfast, lunch, dinner or a snack. The whole family will love it, and what’s more, it’s 100% Made in France and home-made.
