EATING OUT

One of the main reasons that people love France is the cuisine, and here in the Dordogne (generally referred to as The Perigord) is one of France’s top gastronomic regions. Hearty dishes are created using the finest ingredients involving duck, goose, walnuts, truffles and prunes.Foie Gras is a speciality of the region, with its rich buttery taste, it is best eaten with toast or a slab of bread, and a glass of chilled sweet Monbazillac.

Eating out in France can be a real treat, but without having to cost a fortune. It should be a pleasurable experience savouring the food and flavours, and should under no accounts be rushed.

Lunch (déjeuner) is the main meal of the day, normally served from midday to 2.30 pm. The ‘Menu Fixe’ is likely to be the best choice with the ‘Plat du jour’, as it will have the freshest local ingredients. There are a multitude of restaurants within the area catering for most peoples taste. Often the most unassuming restaurants can prove to be a real winner. A good sign is to see if there are lots of local cars in the car park!
