Savouring French countryside cuisine in the Dordogne
Food lovers already know that the Dordogne Valley is a top gourmet destination. And not only for the voluptuous, fairly expensive and surely controversial (in its preparation) foie gras, but for any kind of duck dish, for the highly sought-after black truffles and the delicious walnuts protected by a local appellation. In fact, the Périgord (ancient name for what the Dordogne department) is actually one of the richest countryside areas of France covered by chestnut, hazelnut and walnut orchards, beautiful fields of juicy strawberries and deep forests filled with mushrooms, black truffles and wild animals.
No wonder why the local cuisine is so rich and intense in flavours!!
