Charente-Maritime offers a number of quality products. All are the fruit of a diverse and generous environment and the know-how of local producers. The presence of talented chefs, dedicated to the promotion of these products, provides the opportunity for everyone to appreciate them to the full.
For seafood, bouchot mussels and Marennes-Oléron oysters are much appreciated by connoisseurs, as are fish and crustaceans. Much praise is given to potatoes from the Ile de Ré, Surgères butter, cheese, mojhettes (beans) and cagouilles (snails). And to accompany your meal, how about tasting the wines of the Charentes region, a good Pineau, or a delicious Cognac?
After making your mouth water with the presentation of our unmissable products and a few educational and gourmet ideas, it is time to sit down to eat! A few recipes are also suggested, whether they be traditional, original or made from more unusual flavours.
