Thanks to its lush countryside and coastline location, Normandy, in Northern France, holds a cornucopia of wonderfully fresh produce. The local delicacies owe a lot to this setting, and many of the region’s restaurants feature ever-changing seasonal menus. Typical dishes are simple, yet rich – often with a generous helping of cream and butter. All in all, local produce is a great reflection of this region’s landscape, which encompasses acres of cow fields, apple orchards and an extensive sea coast. Ready to try some for yourself? The best way to do so is at a food festival – and you can find one almost every month. Here, we take a look at some of the best foodie gatherings in Normandy this October.
