A cornucopia of shellfish, cheeses and cream, rhubarb, apples and honey evoke Normandy’s pastoral villages and medieval feasts for the eye.
Normandy’s gently rolling hills are redolent with the scents of Calvados apple brandy, rhubarb jam and honey, and creamy Camembert cheeses. Long, calm beaches yield a bounty of succulent mussels and giant shrimp. Generous seas deliver turbot and sole, deliciously served with creamy sauces. From the sea surrounding Mont St Michel to the orchards of Calvados, regional artisans deliver culinary specialities.
