Chateau Chalon & Vin Jaune

One day Napoleon said to the Prince of Metternich: “You really serve the best wine in the world here!”.

Fenugreek is a member of the legume family (like peas and beans) and is used in cuisine in most countries on the planet, whether as a substantial ingredient or simply as a spice. Fenugreek is also used to brew tea and also sometimes for its medicinal purposes.
