Internationale groepsreis Dordogne Valleys and Villages Cycling

Cycle through France's dramatic river valleys, medieval villages and past fairytale chateaux
9 dagen vanaf € 2.099,- (excl. vlucht)

Food

  • All breakfasts and 8 dinners are included. This is a gastronomic tour so the food is central to your experience. Meat and fish are a big part of the regional cuisine; but the hotels will do their best to cater for vegetarians. The Dordogne has a rich cuisine based on 'produits du terroir' (locally grown produce). A typical first course would be 'tourain', an onion and garlic soup cooked in a broth with duck or goose fat, and ladled over slices of country bread and cheese. Paté, often duck or goose, is equally popular, as is foie gras. Main course specialities also include duck and goose, often served in light cream sauces and, in the autumn, fresh cepes. Duck or goose fat is also used for the accompanying pommes de terre sarladaises - slices of potato sauteed in goose fat, with garlic, parsley and wild mushrooms. Traditional desserts include tarte aux noix, and flognarde, a type of flan with fruit and liqueur. A local cheese that is worth tasting is Bleu des Causses, similar to Roquefort, as well as Rocamadour goat's cheese. There are also some fantastic wines that come from the local area and a little further afield in Bordeaux that will accompany your meals perfectly.
