Gastro-kits by Épicerie Lion // dishes full of flavour and passion

Gastro kitsAfter working with different plants and grains and extensive travelling, Sophie Monti brought Épicerie Lion back to life; an old grocery shop in Amélie Poulain’s beloved Montmartre.
On top of selling high quality seeds, grains, coffees, teas, spices, sweets, she also created her now famous gastro-kits. Organic ingredients that just need to be cooked according to the easy-to-follow instructions.

Each kit has a base ingredient; rice, quinoa, lentils, wheat, spelt, etc, that she mixes with beautiful textures, colours and flavours from around the world. The result is beautiful dishes like quinoa pilaf with figs and hazelnuts; pastotto with goji berries and smoked tea; risotto with olives, orange and sage; petite crimson lentil soup with coconut and curry, and much more in the range.

Though Sophie saves the best for last;  yummy desserts are also on offer. Brownie mix, rice pudding violets, rice pudding with vanilla and marshmallows and French Cancan rice pudding…
Surprise your loved ones with new cooking skills the easy way!
