Thanks to talented market gardeners and producers with respect for their products, Normandy boasts some of the most diverse countryside in France and is able to lay claim to a wide range of specialties: Butter, cream, fruit and vegetables, poultry, and apple-based products such as cider and Calvados brandy. The sea, which is closely linked to regional activity, offers up a host of fish each morning, and you can buy them fresh off the boat: Sole, plaice, flounder, turbot, cod, whiting, devil crab, mussels, oysters, whelks, scallops, lobster and much more…

The countless treasures to be discovered in the offerings of local producers at the famous farmers’ market that takes place on Saturday mornings will be our source of inspiration for cuisine that is simple yet inventive, regional, natural and rustic. This is nothing unusual – but it’s vital when it comes to good food!
