The products of our region
To bring back good Périgord products in your luggage or to taste them during your stay, producers welcome you on their farms or where the products are made. Some of them offer tours, very often accompanied by tasting. Truffle, foie gras, confits, traditional pâtés, Sarladaise oils, nuts, strawberries, wine and many other gourmet products.
The tuber melanosporum, the scholarly name for the truffle, is the black diamond of the Périgord. Its local production is spread, from January on the markets.
THE PERIGORD NUTS
4 large varieties: the horn, a sweet flavor - the marbot whose taste is similar to undried almonds - the grandjean, nut of character with a marked taste associated with a touch of bitterness - the franquette, with a delicate little nutty taste
THE PERIGORD STRAWBERRIES
For 6 months, the Périgord strawberries are on the stalls of producers of all markets or on the menus of restaurateurs in the form of desserts.
The Périgourdins generally have “their cepe corners” but it is difficult to get them to reveal their secret. It is easier to go to markets and buy them especially in Villefranche-du-Périgord.
There are 3 kinds of remarkable cheeses in Périgord, among others 😊 : the cabécou of the Périgord, the "Trappe Echourgnac" and the cujassou. In our restaurant LE RITON DES NAUVES, we offer several dishes where you can taste Cabécou from the Périgord.
The foie gras, confit and duck breast accompanied by the famous Sarladaise potatoes. You can enjoy your stay at Camping Les Nauves to taste all the duck specialties 😊
THE BERGERAC WINE
The Vignobles of Bergerac produce a whole range of wines including 13 "Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC)" such as Pécharmant or Monbazillac. You can discover red wine, white wine, rosé wine, dry bergerac or Côtes de Bergerac sweet white wine.
