Gourmet Dordogne: how to make the most of one of France’s top foodie regions

In addition to magnificent castles, prehistoric cave art and lush landscapes, the Dordogne is famous for its foodie traditions. Immersing yourself in its culinary culture is one of the best – and tastiest – ways to experience life in rural France. The region’s gastronomic goodies range from truffles and walnuts to fine wine and fresh produce. If you enjoy soaking up the sights, sounds and smells of a French market, Dordogne will be your heaven.

Key Takeaways:

  • In addition to magnificent castles, prehistoric cave art and lush landscapes, the Dordogne is famous for its foodie traditions.
  • Local farmers crowd their stalls along the cobbled plazas and winding lanes of the Dordogne (also known as Périgord), selling seasonal treats such
 as cèpe mushrooms, chestnuts, duck terrines, foie gras and confit, walnuts and even truffes noires (black truffles).
  • All of the magnificent produce available in the Dordogne begs exquisite preparations, so no wonder the region boasts excellent restaurants. Offerings include Michelin-starred delights like Le Vieux Logis where chef Vincent Arnould crafts refined Périgord cuisine.
