The Crayons de Coulis

  • September 2018

APPETISER: The Heart of the Dish!

This innovation results from a fruitful encounter between a three-starred chef, Christian Le Squer, and Darégal, the world leader in culinary herbs.

Launched in the restaurant industry in 2014, this range has already become a key tool in chefs’ dishes.

The Crayon de Coulis line is composed of six colourful and delicious recipes inspired by the richness and power of tastes found in nature.

Fine aesthetics and fine cuisine form a winning combination in these aromatic herb coulis for dressing holiday dishes.




• We love it!

The Crayons de Coulis have been developed to recreate the pure, natural colours of their raw materials. A palette of six colours is available to consumers:

  • Mellow yellow
  • Molten red
  • Fresh green
  • Gourmet bordeaux
  • Deep fuchsia
  • Sunny orange

These hues combine harmoniously with the dishes they adorn, providing depth, contrast and freshness.

In dressing dishes, the Crayons de Coulis bring an ultimate touch to recipes, offering guests a culinary flourish.

A star in holiday dishes, the Crayons de Coulis are an extension of hosts’ attentions to decorating their holiday tables.
