Haricot Des Paysannes

Origin:

The origins of Haricot de Paysannes are attributed to the Aosta Valley (French: Vallée d’Aoste, Italian: Valle d’Aosta) and the valley of Savoy regions.

Previous to 25 BC, a group called the Salassi (a Gallic or Lingurian tribe), inhabited the Valle d’Aosta region. Approximately 25 BC it was conquered by Rome. Valle d’Aosta translates to be “Valley of Augustus”, which points to the regions Roman occupation and historical Roman name “Augusta Prætoria Salassorum” (Augusta praetorium of Salasso). 5 6 7 It “is enclosed on the north, west, and south by the Alps”. 7 In the 11th century the region was acquired by the House of Savoy (at this point, it was “the future royal house of Italy” 7). Unlike the region of Savoy, Valle d’Aosta remained a part of Italy after its unification.

Savoy (French: Savoie) is located in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region of Southeastern France. 8 To read more about the Savoy region please visit this page.
