Pure taste of Normandy

What's your favorite taste of Normandy?

Food is one of the key reasons why many people love to come and visit Normandy. Here in Normandy, we’re very proud of our local gastronomy. Reputed for its local cheeses, which include world-famous camembert, its cream and apples, Normandy is a veritable pantry of dreams and a bountiful land of plenty in terms of fresh produce. Did you know that Normandy is the leading French region for scallop fishing? It also produces fine oysters and mussels. Other specialties include salt-marsh lamb raised in salt marshes of the Bay of the Mont-Saint-Michel, chitterling sausages from Vire, tripe from Caen, black pudding from Mortagne-au-Perche and the delicious cinnamon rice pudding we call "Teurgoule", poiré (pear cider), pommeau or calvados, our native apple brandy.

Natural and Authentic Taste of Normandy

With excellent local produce, Normandy’s food and drink is known for being outstanding. Camembert de Normandie, Livarot, Neufchâtel, Pont-l’Évêque, scallops, oysters, cider, calvados, Bénédictine liqueur…There’s something for all taste buds to savour.

You could also go with Normandy’s culinary specialties and get a behind-the-scenes tour of production sites to learn all their secrets, or just step into local market and enjoy the best of local products! Natural, authentic and yummy, there’s no place like Normandy!

Normandy, a cheese heaven

Normandy, and its juicy "deep-sea oysters"

Did you know that the youngest Normandy oysters are kept in the deepest sea and the oldest in the shallowest so that as they grow, they adapt to being out of water?

That’s one of the reasons why we call Normandy oysters “deep-sea oysters”. Another reason is that when you taste Normandy oysters, their juicy fleshy texture, iodine-rich ocean flavor, with a delicate smooth milky taste, will bring your mind right back to the deep sea. It’s like a milky juicy ocean melting in your mouth.

With their meaty flesh, delicate milky and nutty aromas, Normandy oysters are truly appreciated by oyster lovers. Take a trip to Normandy, where these milky “deep-sea” oysters are waiting for you to taste.

Normandy, with its succulent salt-marsh lambs

Surrounded by water at high tide, with its unmistakable silhouette visible from miles away, the Mont-Saint-Michel has been a landmark for pilgrims since the medieval times. But this glorious area of Normandy is also a delight for slow food lovers. Move away from the Mount and the salt marshes surrounding the bay are a source of delicious salt-marsh lamb. Sheep graze on plants washed regularly by the high tide, imparting a very special flavour to the succulent meat. The meat of salt-marsh lambs is naturally sea-salted! Such tenderness and unique flavor make salt-marsh lambs one of the most precious delicacies in French cuisine. When you pass by the holy mountain,…

Normandy, the best place for seafood

Being France’s number one shellfish region, if anyone can put on a cracking seafood festival, it’s certainly Normandy! Did you know that the famous ‘Toute la Mer sur un Plateau’ seafood festival takes place right on the port of Granville every year?
