Travellers seeking an authentic culinary experience are spoilt for choice with the vast array of local specialties to be found in Normandy.
Our region excels in the kitchen, from fine dining to home cooking, from a delicious apple tart to a humble slice of buttered baguette. For a taste of the sea, there are mouth-watering seafood platters fresh off the fishing boat, while meat lovers will relish a traditional boudin [black pudding], some succulent salt-marsh lamb from the famous Bay of the Mont-Saint-Michel, or even some chicken with cider and cream. The region’s four famous cheeses – Camembert de Normandie, Pont-l’Evêque, Livarot and Neufchâtel – are best enjoyed with fresh crusty bread and washed down with a glass of crisp Normandy cider, or the local tipple, Calvados.
