The Manufacture aix&terra makes its local hummus from organic chickpeas. The seeds are kneaded with olive oil, organic mayonnaise and shallots to obtain a creamy purée, seasoned with mustard and a drizzle of lemon juice.
Always inventive, the Provencal house reinterprets the recipe in its own way by creating a poichade à la poutargue. A culinary speciality of the Mediterranean, poutargue, also called "caviar of Provence", is made with dried mullet eggs. The aix&terra factory has chosen for its recipe the Martigues poutargue from the Lou Mujou cannery. Located in Port-de-Bouc, this artisanal cannery benefits from the "EPV" label (Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant), synonymous with excellence.
This spreadable "earth-sea" cream is enjoyed as an accompaniment to white fish or on toast for a festive aperitif, with a glass of Condrieu white wine or an organic Côtes-du-Luberon cuvée, from Château la Verrerie for example.
