“At home, we are marcaire, farmer-innkeeper from father to son for eons.” It is with his family that Jean-Paul Deybach continues to support the Treh farm, located in Markstein, in the Vosges mountains. The Deybach family wears all hats: farmers, munster producers or even innkeepers. No stage of food production escapes them.
No question of keeping the line, our farmer from the Vosges mountains does not skimp on the quantities. After all, the more fat, the better, right? Attached to tradition and local products, Jean-Paul Deybach reveals his generous recipe for Roigebrageldi, which will put your munster in the spotlight.
