INSPIRATION BEHIND YOUR CREATION: 

For this creation I sought inspiration in typical flavours from my region, Brittany, which is a mainly agricultural region. As a farmer’s son, I grew up surrounded with buckwheat fields that my dad grew. I  decided to honour buckwheat  in my creation by working it in different textures. The shape of the bonbon reminds of a water drop touching a pebble, as we have in our rivers.
