Recipes From Celebrities : Solidarity couscous to wrap up 20th anniversary celebrations

Published on 


Salads, soups, bakes, gratins, chips, tarts, purées, pies, pancakes and strattas—What fun we had fun celebrating the 20th anniversary of Équiterre’s family farmer organic basket program!

Since last spring, the Équiterre team’s top 20 celebrities have been taking part in a recipe challenge. Following the seasons and using the contents of an organic basket, these Équiterre supporters put together some delicious recipes that you can make at home.

Laure Waridel, who helped established this extensive family farmer network, brought the celebrations to a fabulous end in her generous, openhearted way with a post-January 29 solidarity couscous recipe combining winter vegetables and Moroccan spices.

Other celebrities included Karim Ouellet, who came up with a three-course meal, and Marilou, who shared her savoury aubergine pancake recipe. Édith Cochrane and Emmanuel Bilodeau even made a short fun video of themselves digging into the contents of their organic basket. Discover the creative and original recipes of 20 celebrities we love!

We would like to thank everyone for celebrating the 20th anniversary of Équiterre’s family farmer organic basket program and sharing our values about healthy, local and organic food. And thank you to all the farmers who provided generous baskets of local organic vegetables.

Now it’s your turn to get cooking with fresh, pesticide-free vegetables, grown and delivered with love by our local family farmers. Find the drop-off point nearest your home and sign up!
